How to Embed a Link in Google Slides (Quick Guide)

Google Slides is a great way to create and share presentations online. But did you know that you can also embed links in your slides? This can be a great way to add extra content or reference materials to your presentation.

This tutorial will show you how to embed links in Google Slides. Let’s get started!

When it comes to presentation, you will want your slides to be visually appealing, informative, and easy to navigate. In some cases, you might require adding a link to your slides.

However, adding a URL as text on your slide will not be nice. Instead, you can use the hyperlink feature to add a link that your audience can click on.

Here are the steps that you need to follow to embed a link in Google Slides:

1. Start by opening your presentation in Google Slides.

2. Select the text or object to which you want to add a link. In my case, you want to link to the text “information” so I have selected it.

3. In the top menu, click on Insert > Link.

4. Paste the URL of the link you want to add and then press Apply. 

That’s it; you are done. Your link will be live now. 

You will be glad to know that there are other ways to add links to your slides as well. For example, you can select the text or object you want to link to and then press the insert icon to add the link. There is even a keyboard shortcut to do this; you can just press CTRL+K  on your keyboard.

You can do this by first selecting the image and then clicking on the link icon in the top menu. You can also use the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut in this case as well.

Once you have added the link, you might want to test it out to ensure that it is working. To do this, just click on the text or object you have just linked. A popup window will show the thumbnail of the link. Pressing on the thumbnail should open your browser and take you to the linked page.

That’s all there is to it! As you can see, it is pretty easy to add links to your Google Slides presentation. Just remember to test the link before sharing your presentation with others to make sure it’s alright.

How to Embed a Video in the Google Slides

Do you know you can also embed a video in your Google Slides? This can be really helpful if you want to add a video clip or tutorial to your presentation. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Start by finding the video you want to add to your presentation.

2. Once you have found the video, copy its URL from the address bar of your web browser.

3. Next, open your presentation in Google Slides and go to the slide where you want to add the video.

4. In the top menu, click on Insert > Video.

5. Choose the By URL option and Paste the video URL in the box that appears and then press Select.

The video will be added to your slide and you can resize and reposition it to suit the other objects and text of the presentation. You can also edit the video playback options by left-clicking on the Video and then selecting the Format Options.

Conclusion

Adding links to your Google Slides presentation can be a great way to add extra content or reference materials. It is also an easy way to add videos to your presentation. Just remember to test the links before you share your presentation with others to make sure they are working as they should.
