Many people choose Microsoft PowerPoint to build a presentation file because the PPT can be saved as a video, which makes communication and presentation clearer.
Meanwhile, there are more people who opt for Google Slides, which allow collaboration and sharing among a group of people especially when members are working from home or when you are having a presentation with co-workers all around the world. All of you can work on the same slide simultaneously.
What's more, with steps in this post, you can turn your Google Slides into a video as well. By saving Google Slides into video, you can not only share the important points with co-workers who are absent for the meeting but also upload your great idea, products, or whatever you want to YouTube, Vimeo, which can drive more audiences to your speech and presentation.
To save your Google Slides as a video, you will need a screen recorder first.
There are many screen record programs and here we'd like to introduce FonePaw Screen Recorder (opens new window), which has won many users around the world for its versatile functions.
In addition to meeting your need of making Google Slides into a video, you can even add voice over (opens new window) to your slides. Besides, if you have anything to highlight in the slide, you can add a line, text, or annotation to Google Slides video directly. It also enables you to take a screenshot during the recording. When you finish the recording, you can save the video in different formats, such as MP4, MOV, GIF.
If you are a speaker or a teacher, one of the most attractive features is that it can record the screen and the webcam at the same time (opens new window). In this way, you can do your speech and presentation vividly by showing your facial expressions or gestures.
