If you have an Android device, how can you view PowerPoint on it, since PowerPoint formats are not supported by Android? It is said that only on Windows Mobile 8 that PowerPoint will be originally supported one or two years later. So we need to find alternative ways to play PowerPoint. Here we would like to suggest 5 methods to view PowerPoint on Any Android Devices.

Method 1: Android apps

Method 2: View PowerPoint online

Method 4: Convert PowerPoint to video

Method 1: Android apps

This might be the first solution most people would think of. Yes, like iOS system, Android has lots of powerful and practical apps. The most famous Android apps for PowerPoint are: Documents to Go, Quick Office (this is originally installed on Asus Eee Pad Transformer), ThinkFree Office and Office Suite. Basically these apps could open Microsoft PowerPoint but some of the effects like animations, transitions may be removed.

 

Method 2: View PowerPoint online

Android Smartphones has extraordinary performances on web browsing. Besides, there are a few websites that allows you to upload PowerPoint for sharing with others. So we could view PowerPoint online with Android. These websites are like: authorSTREAM.com, Slideshare.net, Slideboom.com.

 

Method 3: View PowerPoint as pictures

Pictures are originally support by all the Smartphones. Android is no exception. So you can save the PowerPoint slides as pictures for viewing on Android.

  • 1. Click the round Office button >” Save As” >” Other Formats”.
  • 2. In the “Save As type” drop down menu, for example, choose JPG, and click “Save”. When PowerPoint asks whether you want to export all slides, select “Every Slide”.

 

For PowerPoint 2003 & 2010:

  • 1. Click “File” on the ribbon > “Save As”.
  • 2. In the “Save as type” menu, choose “GIF” for example, and click “Save”, When PowerPoint asks whether you want to export all slides, select “Every Slide”.

 

Method 4: Convert PowerPoint to video format

Only by converting PowerPoint to video can we preserve all the original PowerPoint effects like fonts, languages, animations, transitions, and especially the background music and inserted video clips. Besides, the fast processor and big screen will guarantee a wonderful video playing experience. Take Moyea PPT to Video Converter for example.
