Tips for adding music to Google Slides
Adding music to your Google Slides presentation can help enhance your message and create a more engaging experience for your audience. There are a few things to keep in mind when adding music to your slides, such as copyright restrictions and file size limitations. Here are some tips to help you get started:
1. Choose appropriate background music. Make sure the music you select fits the overall tone and theme of your presentation. If you’re unsure, err on the side of caution and choose something more tame.
2. Be aware of copyright restrictions. If you’re using copyrighted material, make sure you have permission from the copyright holder before using it in your presentation.
3. Convert audio files to MP3 format. Google Slides only supports MP3 files, so you’ll need to convert any other audio files to this format before adding them to your slides.
4. Check file size limitations. Google Slides has a limit of 50MB per file, so make sure your audio file is under this limit before trying to add it to your presentation.
5. Insert audio into Google Slides. Once you’ve chosen and prepared your audio file, you can insert it into Google Slides by going to Insert > Audio > Choose from Computer or Upload from URL (for online audio files).

Music can enhance the experience of your audience when used correctly in Google Slides. If you decide to add music to your presentation, there are a few best practices to keep in mind:
-Choose a track that is appropriate for your audience and the message of your presentation.
-Consider the length of your track and make sure it doesn’t outstay its welcome.

How to make sure your music doesn’t get cut off in Google Slides
If you’re using Google Slides to give a presentation, you may want to include background music. Unfortunately, there’s no built-in way to do this in Google Slides. However, there is a workaround that will allow you to insert music into your presentation.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Create a new Google Slide or open an existing one.
2. Go to “File” > “Page Setup” and change the page size to “Custom.” Enter the dimensions of your slide deck in the width and height fields (e.g., 1024x768).
3. Insert a video file into your slide deck. You can do this by going to “Insert” > “Video.” Choose either “Upload video” or “YouTube video.” If you’re uploading a video, make sure it’s in MP4 format. Once the video is inserted, resize it so it takes up the entire slide.
4. Play the video on loop by right-clicking on it and selecting “Video options.” Check the “Loop until stopped” box and click “OK.”
5. You can now add audio files to your presentation by going to “Insert” > “Audio.” Choose either “Upload audio” or “Record audio.” If you’re uploading an audio file, make sure it’s in MP3 format. Once the audio is inserted, resize it so it takes up the entire slide (just like the video).
6. Play your presentation as usual. The music will play in the background on all slides while the video plays on a loop on each slide.
