Google Slides, part of Google’s Suite of productivity software, offers a versatile platform for creating presentations. One of the most useful features of Google Slides is the ability to create dynamic charts and graphs, such as pie charts. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps of creating a pie chart in Google Slides.
Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation
Start by opening the Google Slides presentation where you want to add your pie chart. If you don’t have a presentation open, navigate to slides.google.com and click on the ‘+’ button to create a new presentation.
Step 2: Select the Slide for Your Pie Chart
Navigate to the slide where you want to add the pie chart. You can add a new slide by clicking on the “+” button in the top left-hand corner.
Step 3: Inserting a Chart
Once you have selected the appropriate slide, click on the “Insert” menu at the top of the screen, then select “Chart” from the drop-down menu, and then “Pie”.
Step 4: Customizing Your Pie Chart
After selecting “Pie”, a default pie chart will appear on your slide. To customize the data in your pie chart, click on the chart, then click on the “Linked chart” option in the toolbar, and then “Open source”.
This will open a Google Sheet with sample data. Here, you can input your own data. The pie chart in your Google Slides presentation will automatically adjust to reflect any changes you make to this data.
Step 5: Customizing the Look of Your Pie Chart
To change the look of your pie chart, click on the chart in your slide to select it. Then, click on the “Chart style” option in the toolbar. Here you can change the chart’s colors, apply a 3D style, and more.

Not only do they provide a visual aid to help convey information more efficiently, but they also give your slides a professional look and feel.
