How To Convert Canva to Google Slides

If you have created a presentation on Canva and want to use it on Google Slides, follow the approaches provided in this guide. We offer two distinct approaches: direct conversion to Google Drive from Canva and an alternative manual method for those who don’t prefer using it.

Convert Canva Presentation to Google Slides using Drive

Wrapping Up

Congratulations on successfully converting the Canva presentation to Google Slides!

While both approaches help you successfully convert Canva to Google Slides if you need to make additional changes, save the presentation as Microsoft Powerpoint.

If you find these approaches complicated, you can use integrations to ease the process, but we wouldn’t suggest them for privacy concerns.
