Speaker notes & Timer

You can now view your speaker notes directly in the Remote for Slides Progressive Web App or in the Remote for Slides Lite Android App. To make sure you can keep track of time, we also added a timer at the bottom of the screen. We want you to have a successful presentation!

Dark Mode & Black Mode

Are you going to giving a presentation in a dark environment? You can now enable the dark mode from the settings page. And if you are using a device with an OLED display, we recommend you to enable the black mode.
