How To Put Live Weather In Google Slides

Google Slides is a popular presentation tool that offers user-friendly features and a versatile platform for creating informative and engaging presentations. One particularly useful feature is the ability to embed live weather updates into your presentation. This can be especially handy for presentations about the environment, weather trends, or any project where real-time weather information is relevant.

In this blog post, we’re going to guide you through the process of adding live weather to your Google Slides presentation. To achieve this, we will utilize a third-party website that generates an HTML code snippet for a weather widget, which we can then embed into our slides.

Step 1: Get the Live Weather Widget Code

First, we need to generate the HTML code for the live weather widget. We recommend using a website like Weather Widget. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Visit the website and click on ‘Create Widget’.
  2. Customize the widget as per your requirements – you can select your location, choose a theme, select the size, and more.
  3. Once you’re happy with the customization, click on ‘Get Code’.
  4. You’ll now be provided with an HTML code snippet for your widget. Copy this code.

Step 2: Embed the Widget in Google Slides

Google Slides doesn’t support direct HTML embedding. But there’s an easy workaround – we’ll use Google Sites to host the widget and then embed the Google Site into our slide. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Google Sites and create a new site.
  2. In the right-hand editor panel, click on the ‘Embed’ option.
  3. Paste the HTML code for your weather widget that you copied earlier, then click ‘Next’, ‘Insert’, and ‘Publish’.
  4. Now, go back to your Google Slides presentation. Click on ‘Insert’, then select ‘Google Sites’ from the dropdown menu.
  5. Paste the URL of the Google Site that you created, and the weather widget will be embedded into your slide.

And there you have it!

You now know how to put live weather in Google Slides! This handy trick can greatly enhance your presentations and provide real-time information to your audience. Remember, you can use this same method to embed other HTML widgets into your slides as well.

Happy presenting!
