Here’s the fun part: selecting the template. You can either make it minimalistic, dark, formal, or creative. I am a sucker for minimalist designs, so I’ll select that.

That means you can continue editing the file in Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides.

AI Assistant

Now, I’d like to highlight the “AI Assistant” feature on the edit screen. This feature lets you use AI to generate Q&A suggestions and improve your slides. This is extremely useful for anticipating questions and refining your presentation.

Awesome! This will give you an idea of what kinds of questions might be raised regarding your slides and how to answer them.

The AI-generated tips will help you improve your delivery, learn how to use the visual aid better, and improve your engagement with your audience.

What makes Decktopus different from other platforms?

All the other platforms are cool, but they do not let you save time as Decktopus does. Decktopus is a NO BRAINER. — Decktopus Team

  • You do not have to deal with alignment issues, search for the perfect images, or worry about lead generation. Plus, your audience is not bored to death because it’s interactive with forms, embedded pages, auto-played voice, and more.
  • There are layouts; you just type your content into the editor area. Then, Decktopus converts your content into a good-looking document automatically and instantly.
  • Decktopus is more than a presentation tool with free image and GIF libraries. You can also insert built-in forms and let your audience submit any information. In this way, you can create leads or collect any other information within a single document and run any campaign you want.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I am very impressed with how Decktopus has managed to simplify and streamline the presentation creation process using AI. As someone who frequently has to create decks for work, I can see how this tool could be an absolute game-changer in terms of saving time and effort.

And the fact that you can further customize the auto-generated slides, add speaker notes, and even have the AI generate Q&A suggestions shows how advanced this technology is. I have no doubt Microsoft, Google, and others are rushing to integrate similar AI capabilities into their presentation tools.

But kudos to Decktopus for being ahead of the pack and making AI-powered presentations a reality today. I’m excited to see how they continue advancing this technology in the months ahead. The possibilities seem endless in terms of adding new features and enhancements.

Any busy professional who frequently creates presentations would be wise to give this new AI tool a try.
