How To Create A Pie Chart On Google Slides

If you want to present data in a way that is visually appealing and easy to understand, you can’t go wrong with a pie chart. A pie chart offers a visual representation of the data, making it easier to understand the data’s proportions. In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps on how to create a pie chart in Google Slides.

Step 1: Open a New Slide

Firstly, you need to open Google Slides and select the presentation where you want to add the pie chart. If you haven’t created one, you can click on + New to create a new presentation. Then, open a new slide where you want to insert the pie chart.

Step 2: Insert Chart

After you have a new slide open, go to the menu bar at the top and click on Insert. From the dropdown menu, click on Chart. You will then see several options such as bar chart, column chart, line chart, and pie chart. Click on Pie.

Step 3: Edit Your Chart

After inserting the pie chart, you will see a new window appear on the right-hand side of your screen. This is where you can input your data for the pie chart. The window will display a default chart and an accompanying spreadsheet with pre-populated data.

You can replace this data with your own. Just click on the cells and type in your data. The pie chart will automatically update to reflect the new data. You can input the categories in the left-hand column and their corresponding values in the column next to it.

You can also edit the title of the chart by clicking on it and typing your preferred title.

Step 4: Customize Your Chart

One of the great things about creating a pie chart in Google Slides is that you can customize it to suit your preferences or match your presentation theme. You can change the color, font, or size of your chart.

In order to change the color of the slices, first click on the pie chart, then click on a slice and select the Fill color icon in the toolbar. Choose your desired color.

PieChart = {
    'color': {
        'slice1': 'red',
        'slice2': 'blue',
        'slice3': 'green'

Step 5: Save Your Work

Once you’ve successfully created and customized your pie chart, remember to save your work. Google Slides automatically saves your work as you go along, but it’s always a good idea to manually save before exiting to ensure no data is lost.

And that’s it! You have successfully created a pie chart in Google Slides. As you can see, it’s a straightforward process that can greatly enhance your presentations. Whether you need to present survey results, company revenue, or any other data, a pie chart can be an effective tool.
