How to record yourself on Google Slides with Game Bar
Game Bar is a built-in application that comes with all Windows 10 and newer PCs. This free software allows users to capture the screen activity in a selected window or application. You can use it to screen-record a Google Slides presentation, gameplay on your Xbox or PC, or activity in a browser window. It does not include video-editing capabilities, and you can’t get it for Mac or Linux machines.
Here's how to record a Google Slides presentation with audio and video with the Game Bar:
Step 1. Download and install the program
Step 2. Alter your settings
Open your Google Slides presentation. Press the Windows key + G to open the Xbox Game Bar.
To enable your microphone, click the microphone symbol, or use the Win + Alt + M buttons. You can also fine-tune the audio mix from the audio widget.
Step 3. Start recording
Then, click the Start recording button or hit Win + Alt + R to record over your Google Slides. Navigate through your Google Slides presentation as needed. The Game Bar will capture your slides with your voice and video.
A small control panel will appear on your screen where you can click the red button once you’re done with the presentation. Another small box will appear where you can click to access the recorded file location. The default file location is User > Videos > Capture, while the default format is MP4.
Note that Xbox Game Bar only works on Windows 10 and 11. If you're using an older version of Windows, or if you're using a Mac, you'll need to use a different screen-recording tool.
How to screen-record Google Slides on a Mac
Wondering, “Can I record myself on my Mac while presenting?” Sure! macOS Mojave and later versions include a powerful built-in screen-recording tool, which lets you natively take screenshots and record your screen activity.
Here's how to record yourself on Google Slides on a Mac:
Step 1. Specify the settings
Open Google Slides to record a slideshow. Press Shift + Command + 5 to open the screen-recording toolbar.
A control bar will appear at the bottom of your screen. Select Record Entire Screen or Record Selected Portion based on your preference. If you choose the latter, you must manually select the area of your screen you want to record.
If you want to record audio with your video, click Options in the control bar and select the correct microphone under the Microphone section.
Step 2. Start recording
To start recording, click on the Record button. Navigate through your Google Slides presentation as you normally would. The app will capture everything in the selected area, including your slides and any audio commentary you provide.
Once you're finished with your presentation, click the Stop button in the menu bar at the top of your screen or press Command + Control + Esc. The recorded video will be automatically saved to your desktop. The default file format is MOV.
Because Google Slides doesn’t include a feature to record directly in a presentation, you’ll need to use a screen recording application to record your presentation video. If you’re looking for a desktop app, we recommend Movavi Screen Recorder as a desktop app. If you need an online solution without the need to download an application, we recommend Screencapture.com. If you’re looking for a Chrome plugin to do the job, you might want to try Movavi Screen Recorder for Chrome.
You can use Movavi Screen Recorder to capture your voice on Google Slides:
Click the Start recording icon and specify the recording area.
Click REC to start recording. To finish recording, click Stop.
