How To Download A Google Slides Presentation With Audio

Prepare your Google Slides Presentationt allows users to create stunning presentations for both professional and personal use. A standout feature of Google Slides is its ability to incorporate audio files into your presentations. This feature can make your presentations more interactive, engaging, and effective. However, when it comes to downloading and sharing these presentations, you might encounter hiccups. This tutorial will guide you through the steps on how to download a Google Slides presentation with audio.

Step 1: Prepare your Google Slides Presentation

Before you can download your presentation with audio, you first need to ensure that you have embedded the audio files correctly in your slides.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Open your Google Slides presentation.
  2. Click on the slide where you want to add the audio.
  3. Click on Insert > Audio.
  4. Select the audio file from your Google Drive and click Select.

Step 2: Download your Google Slides Presentation as a Video

Unfortunately, Google Slides does not directly support downloading presentations with audio. The audio gets lost when you download the presentation as a PDF or PPTX file. The workaround for this is to download your presentation as a video file.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Click on File > Download > .mp4 Video.
  2. Wait for the video to be processed and download automatically.

Step 3: Convert Video to PowerPoint (optional)

If you need your presentation in PowerPoint format, you can use online conversion tools like Zamzar or Online-Convert to convert your downloaded video to a PowerPoint presentation.


Although downloading a Google Slide presentation with audio might seem tricky at first, but once you know the correct steps, the process is pretty straightforward. Keep in mind that while you can download and convert your presentation with audio, the audio will play continuously in the background, unlike in Google Slides where you have the control when the audio plays.
