When it comes to creating engaging presentations, the visual appeal is just as important as the content. One impactful way to enhance your slides’ aesthetics is by using custom fonts. In today’s blog post, we’ll walk you through an easy guide on how to add fonts to Google Slides.
Access Google Fonts
Google Slides does not allow you to directly upload custom fonts. However, it provides access to Google Fonts, a library with an extensive collection of 800+ free licensed font families. Here’s how you can access them:
Step 1: Open Your Presentation
Start by opening the Google Slides presentation where you want to add a new font. Select the text box that contains the text you want to modify.
Step 2: Access the Font Drop-Down Menu
Head over to the toolbar at the top of your screen, and click on the Font drop-down arrow. This will open a list of currently available fonts in your Google Slides.
Step 3: Add Fonts
At the top of the font list, you’ll see an option that says More Fonts. Click on this to open a new window that showcases all available Google Fonts.
Step 4: Search and Select Your Font
In the More Fonts window, you can sort and search fonts based on four categories: popularity, alphabetical, date added, and number of styles. Once you’ve found a font you like, click on it to select. The selected fonts will appear in the column on the right.
Step 5: Add Font to Your Presentation
Once you’ve selected all the fonts you want to use, click the OK button. These fonts will now be added to your font list in Google Slides, and you can use them in your presentation.
And there you have it! You can now add and use a variety of fonts to make your Google Slides presentations more engaging and visually appealing. Remember, while a good font can enhance readability and interest, too many can be distracting. So, choose wisely and happy designing!
