How it Works
When you are editing your Google Presentation, simply click "File", then select, "Publish to the web".
Then simply go down to the option that reads, "Automatically advance presentation to the next slide" and select preferred amount of time between slides.
In addition, you can even get your presentation's "Document link", "Embed code" and you can even change the "Presentation size". Finally, you can also choose to "start your slideshow as soon as the presentation loads", and to "restart after the last slide". These settings are particularly helpful if you plan on embedding your presentation into a website, or if you plan to share the presentation with others.
Here's an Example
If you notice, there is now a little "Play" button in between the arrows to advance my slides at the bottom of my Google Presentation. I purposefully set the slideshow to advance every 3 seconds while it plays. Click on the "Play" button and try it out for yourself.
Another great use for this feature is if you are interested in doing a live Pecha Kucha style presentation. If you set your slideshow to advance to the next slide every 20 seconds, then it will force you to create a Pecha Kucha style presentation. Therefore, keeping it short, sweet, and to the point!
