Collaborations: Add Google Slides

Collaborations: Add Google Slides

Is there any way that we could add the other google drive products to collaborations? It would be so nice to have students collaborate on google slides.  It would really simplify some of my in class projects.

Really any moves towards a fuller/more complete Google integration would be nice.

I had been meaning to ask for this and other Google integrations to Canvas Collaborations. Would it be possible to "simply" (ha, ha) add all Google Drive tools (sheets, drawings, etc.) to Collaborations?

For those of our districts that don't use Google we need a balance with the Office 365 products integration.

In addition to Google Slides, I would like to add Google sheets so it's easy for students to insert tables/spreadsheets. Right now all the only option is Google Docs. So they will create Google slides or sheets outside of Canvas and share with me - I really don't want to have 100s of invites for Google files - I would really like everything to be done through Collaborations in Canvas.

O365 PPT through Canvas Collaborations has not worked properly for 15/15 of my students, creating a total disaster in my course. PPT is phasing out for slide decks in many organizations because it is a huge time consumer and does not work well for collaborations through Sharepoint/O365.

Google Slides works perfectly, but does not yet integrate in Canvas Collaborations- Please prioritize adding Google Slides, to support students and instructors using Canvas!

With no integration of GSlides, in Collaborations, Canvas is rendered its Collaborations feature obsolete at a time when this feature is more essential than ever before.
Since Canvas has been unable to support the problem every student in my course is having with the Canvas integration of O365, Canvas Collaborations can no longer be used at all within my course on Technology for Instruction. 
It would be nice if Canvas worked on integrating this functional tool to provide a better option for instructors and students. Until Google Slides in integrated in Canvas Collaborations, the only way to create student success is by avoiding Canvas entirely for assignments designed within a Canvas course. This is a total disaster for my students and the course, and totally undermines the already limited confidence in Canvas across the technology instructors and technology support teams on our campus.
When will Google Slides be integrated into Canvas Collaborations?
