When it comes to making your Google Slides presentations more interactive and engaging, nothing beats the power of integrating videos. The beauty of Google Slides is that it allows you to embed videos directly into your slides. This tutorial will walk you through the process of embedding a video into your Google Slides presentation.
Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation
The first step is to open your Google Slides presentation. If you haven’t already created a presentation, you can do so by navigating to the Google Slides homepage and clicking on the “+ New” button.
Step 2: Select the Slide Where You Want to Embed the Video
Once you have your presentation open, navigate to the slide where you want to embed your video. Remember that the video should correspond with the content of the slide to ensure a seamless flow of information.
Step 3: Click on the ‘Insert’ Menu
Now, look for the ‘Insert’ menu at the top of your screen. Click on it to reveal a dropdown menu. From the dropdown menu, select ‘Video’.
Step 4: Search for Your Video
The ‘Insert Video’ window will open, providing you with three options to search for your video: ‘Search’, ‘By URL’, and ‘Google Drive’. You can use the ‘Search’ tab to search directly on YouTube, the ‘By URL’ tab to embed a video using its direct URL, or the ‘Google Drive’ tab to embed a video that you have saved on your Google Drive.
Step 5: Insert the Video
Once you’ve found your video, click on it and then click on the ‘Select’ button at the bottom of the ‘Insert Video’ window. Your video will then be embedded into your selected slide.
Here is an example of how the final code should look:

That’s all there is to it! Embedding a video into a Google Slides presentation is a simple but effective way to make your presentations more engaging and interactive. Just remember to ensure that your videos enhance the content of your slides to provide the maximum benefit to your audience.
