Some GMail users have reported that they see a “View as Slideshow” option in mails that contain PowerPoint attachments.

Doug Caverly on says that “whether it’s being polite, trying not to scare its competitor, or somehow believes this is true, Google has repeatedly claimed that it isn’t challenging the Microsoft Office Suite. But now a feature within Gmail looks a lot like a presentation tool, and onlookers are having an even harder time accepting the search engine giant’s word.”

Rafe Needleman adds on Webware — “This is probably the presentation player that will be part of Google’s upcoming competitor to PowerPoint. It’s not, though, what we’re all waiting for, which is the slide show authoring tool that will presumably have cool collaborative features similar to Google’s word processor and spreadsheet.”
