Google Slides is the perfect alternative to Microsoft’s PowerPoint. Google Slides allows for all your ideas to shine with a variety of presentation themes, fonts, embedded video, animations, and more. However, there might be integrations or tools that are missed from its alternatives. With the Google Workspace Marketplace, which provides free or paid add-ons, you can expand what you can do in Google Slides! This guide will show you how to use the Google Workspace Marketplace and install an add-on to Google Slides.

You can also get add-ons for Google Forms, Google Sheets, and Google Docs!
