Google Slides – Insert Video from Google Drive

What’s the big deal?

Up until yesterday, if you wanted to include a video in your Google Slides presentation, YouTube was your only option. Now, in addition to searching for/pasting in the URL to your favorite YouTube videos, you can insert any video you have stored in your Google Drive! Now you can include that clip of your students’ chemistry experiment in your presentations without the added step of uploading it to YouTube. Keep reading to learn how.


  1. In your Slides presentation, click Insert –> Video.
  2. Click Google Drive.
  3. Scroll and/or search for the video you want to include and click on it.
  4. Click Insert.

Now, when you click the Present button and arrive on the slide that includes your Google Drive video, simply click the play button. The crowd goes wild! Take a bow.
