Google now allows you to upload PowerPoint presentations from Gmail and edit them in Google Docs. When you receive a PowerPoint attachment (TIFF and PPT files) simply click the View option to open and preview the presentation in a new online viewer, powered by Google Docs. If you'd like to save the presentation to Google Docs, just click Edit Online and it'll be imported into Google Docs. This viewer provides a richer set of features than the old "View as slideshow" version: you can zoom in and out, select text to copy and paste, and "print" the presentation to a PDF document. And, unlike the old version, we no longer require you to have a Flash plugin installed on your browser, explain Gmail blog.
