On the other hand, the sound of songs and films is deemed vital as background music in PowerPoint presentations and Google presentations on a corporate and more private level. We are going to continue discussing these through the article. There are not many different ways to include music in Google Slides at the moment. However, in the following lines, I will describe, step by step, the approaches employed the most often.
External links are one of the most prevalent techniques to include music in Google Slides presentations. This is to embed a link inside the presentation that will lead to an audio track you own the right to play. It is typical practice to use music streaming services such as Spotify or Apple Music while carrying out this activity. SoundCloud, on the other hand, enables us to submit the audio files we have already gotten from other sites such as Epidemic Sound or Audiojungle. Because of this, I will utilize SoundCloud to describe this process.
Open our Google Slides document by going to the folder where it is stored and double-clicking on its icon. Adding music at the appropriate time throughout a presentation is likely the last step that must be completed. As a result, it is taken for granted that the slides have been finished and organized.
When we have finished opening the Google presentation, the next step is to choose the slide on which we will add the audio. We will go with the first option for the sake of this illustration and following what we discussed before the presentation's opening slide.
The next thing that we need to do is choose the score or soundtrack that we want to play in the background. To do this, we need to access the internet and search for the music streaming service from which we want to get the audio. In this instance, we have decided that we would make use of SoundCloud; thus, we will go to the website located at https://soundcloud.com.
After connecting to the internet, we log in and upload the audio track we created. To do this, click on the word "Upload" that is located in the top right corner, just to the left of our profile name (the word "Subir" appears in the following photo since it is written in Spanish).
To include the link to our audio track and to be able to recreate it when we are presenting, it is first required to relate that link to a visual element that is in our Google slide. Only then will we be able to insert the link. As a result, adding an image or graphic to the slide will be essential if it currently does not have one.
Do you remember the URL we copied into the clipboard during the second step? The moment has come to put it to use. If you did not copy it, you would need to return to step 2, copy it, and proceed to the presentation. Once this has been completed, choose the picture you had previously placed by left-clicking on it and then selecting Insert >'' Link from the context menu. In that space, we need to put the URL of the audio clip that we have posted to SoundCloud. The sound will automatically be added to the picture when you click the "Apply" button; no further action is required on your part.
To begin playing the music while you are presenting, you must first click the area on the screen that reads "Present." The presentation may be started by clicking this button, which is located in the upper right corner. The next step is to click on the picture where we have placed the link to the audio track. Our browser will create a new tab in which the SoundCloud website will be loaded. We will begin playing the tune by clicking on the symbol that looks like a play button. Adding music at the appropriate time throughout a presentation is likely the last step that must be completed. When we have finished opening the Google presentation, the next step is to choose the slide on which we will add the audio. Afterward, we returned to the slide where we left off to begin the presentation.
