You Can Download and Use Google Slides™ as Powerpoints


Are your students using Google Slides™ or Powerpoints? Did you know that if you have a resource in a Powerpoint format you might be able to use in Google Slides™and vice versa? Read on to find out how.
What Powerpoints and Google Slides™ are able to be used in both?
The following types of Powerpoint (.pptx) resources will likely work in Google Slides™ and vice versa:

➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ with all pages in the background
➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ without animations
➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ with text boxes or tables to fill out
➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ with drag and drop pieces
➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ with linked slides

What likely won't work:

➼ a Powerpoint/Google Slides™ with animations

One thing you might find is a problem with the text depending on the font used. You would need the font available in Slides or Powerpoint for all editable text to work properly.

I cannot guarantee that the resource you are trying to use as the other version will work 100%. In my experience, I have been able to use most Powerpoint in Google Slides™ and vice versa without problems.
