If you’re having trouble adding music to your Google Slides presentation, there are a few things you can try:
– Make sure that your Google Slides presentation is saved as a .pptx file. Music can only be added to presentations that are in .pptx format.
– If you’re using a Mac, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed. If you’re using a PC, make sure that you have the latest version of Windows Media Player installed.
– Try adding the music file to your presentation again. If it still doesn’t work, try restarting your computer and then trying again.
