Two Ways to Add Spotify Music to Google Slides

Like Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides is a simple and intuitive tool for creating and editing presentations. It is completely free. As long as you have a Google account, you can create dynamic slide presentations, collaborate with others, and present them quickly and easily. It is part of the Google Drive suite along with other services such as Google Docs or Google Sheets.

Adding music or sound effects into an embedded slideshow can be a great way to bring movement and dynamism to your slides. Unlike PowerPoint, the Audio Import option is not yet included in the Google slide, it only has the opportunity to embed YouTube videos. As one of the largest music streaming service providers, Spotify offers more than 100 million music tracks to its users. It would be nice if we could add Spotify music songs to Google Slides.

Fortunately, in this post, we're going to provide two different ways to show you how to insert Spotify music into Google Slides to enrich your presentations.

Insert Spotify music into Google Slides

Method 1. Insert the Spotify Music Links into Google Slides Directly

To import Spotify music to Google Slides, you can insert a link to the Spotify track you want to hear in the background. This method is straightforward. When you start your presentation, please make sure you are connected to the Internet and have a stable network connection.

1. Open the Spotify desktop app, and find the song, album, or playlist you want to add to a Google Slides presentation.

2. Press the three dots next to the song you want, and select "Share" from the dropdown. And then click "Copy Song Link."

3. Open your Google Slides presentation and choose the slide where you want to add audio.

4. Insert an icon or image. We'll use it to link the online audio. Select the resource. Click "Insert" - "Link" or press Ctrl + K. You can also click the "Insert link" button on the toolbar. And then paste your Spotify link in the Link text box and click "Apply".

While you're giving the presentation, you'll need to click the link, which will open Spotify in a new browser window. You'll still need to click Play on the song in the Spotify window before returning to your Google Slides presentation.

Method 2. Add Spotify Music to Google Slides from Google Drive

Except for inserting links, you can also add audio files stored in your Google Drive account to Google Slides. Google Slides supports MP3 and WAV audio formats. However, Spotify is a music streaming service, all Spotify files are encoded in the encrypted Ogg Vorbis file type. Therefore, it is not possible to upload Spotify songs to Google Drive.
