How To Convert Canva To Google Slides

Have you ever been in a situation where you had a beautiful Canva presentation but needed to transfer it to Google Slides? Whether for sharing, editing or presenting, knowing how to convert your Canva presentations to Google Slides can be a lifesaver. This article will take you through a step-by-step process of achieving just that.

Step 1: Download Your Canva Design

The first step is to have your Canva presentation ready and downloaded. To do this:

  1. Open your Canva presentation
  2. Select ‘Download’ at the top right corner of your screen.
  3. Choose ‘Microsoft PowerPoint’ as your download format. This will download your design in a .pptx format which can be easily converted to Google Slides.
  4. Click ‘Download’.

Step 2: Upload the PowerPoint File to Google Drive

Next, you need to upload the downloaded file to Google Drive:

  1. Open Google Drive and click on the ‘+New’ button.
  2. Select ‘File upload’.
  3. Locate and select the downloaded PowerPoint file, then click ‘Open’ to upload the file to your Google Drive.

Step 3: Open with Google Slides

Now, the only thing left is to open the file with Google Slides:

  1. Once the file upload is complete, locate the file in your Google Drive and right-click on it.
  2. Select ‘Open with’ and then choose ‘Google Slides’.
  3. Your file will then be converted to a Google Slides format and will open in a new tab.

And voila! Your Canva presentation is now a Google Slides presentation! You can now edit and share your presentation as you wish.

Note: The conversion might not be perfect, especially for complex Canva designs, as Google Slides may not support all the features and elements used in Canva.


Converting your Canva presentations to Google Slides is not a difficult task. All it takes is a few simple steps: Downloading your design from Canva, uploading it to Google Drive, and opening it with Google Slides. Now, you can enjoy the flexibility of using Google Slides for your presentations without giving up the creative power of Canva.
