How To Embed Google Slides
You’ll find the written instructions below and then a video and PDF version.
This is a two-step process. First, you need to get the embed code from your Slides presentation then add it to your blog.
Step One: Get the embed code for your Slides presentation
1) Open your Slides presentation
2) Publish to the web
Go to File > Publish to the web
You’ll find File in the top left-hand corner of your page.
Click on Embed. There are a few options to control the size and speed of the slides. Changing these options isn’t essential (medium is usually a good size).
Click on Publish.
You’ll receive a warning that you’re about to publish to the web. Press OK.
3) Copy the embed code
After you press OK, your HTML embed code will appear in a box. You need to copy this code to add to your blog post or page.
How to copy:
- Click on the text to highlight it if it’s not already highlighted
- Press Control C (Windows) or Command C (Mac)
- Alternatively, right-click and press Copy
Note: If you ever want to unpublish your Slides presentation so it’s not available on the web, repeat these steps and click on the small arrow at the bottom of the box that says Published content and settings. Select Stop publishing.
Step Two: Add the embed code to your blog post or page
These instructions show how to add your Slides presentation to a blog post. The same process applies to pages.
1) Open your post
Go to your blog dashboard and open the post you’re working on. Or, go to Posts > Add New.
2) Add Media
Place your cursor where you want the Slides presentation to appear and then click on the Add Media button.
3) Insert Embed Code
In the Add Media window, click on the Insert Embed Code tab on the left.
4) Paste Embed Code
Paste the embed code into the Insert Embed code box.
How to paste:
- Press Control V (Windows) or Command V (Mac)
- Alternatively, right-click and select Paste
When you’ve finished writing your post, click Publish.
You should now see your embedded Slides presentation when you view the published post. You can also preview your post to see what it looks like before publishing.
