How to Set Apple Music as Google Slides Background Music [2024 Updated]

By Noah Brown

Updated on December 21, 2023

People are used to having tunes and soundtracks from the TV shows and movies that we watch. Therefore, a beautiful melody on your illustration will make your Google Slide more attractive and impressive. The steps to add Apple Music to Google Slides are very simple. You can have any other music for slideshow apart from Apple Music. Music is not necessarily an option for presentations and slide shows, but it can certainly attract the audience and liven the session up.

To have some background music on your slides that will match your presentations, you will need some pretty good sources. Apple Music is a music streaming service with over 90 million songs to choose from, and this qualifies it as the best source for background music. The only setback is how to use Apple Music in Google Slides because Google Slides does not offer an insert option for you to upload your music for use. There are two main ways that you can use to add your Apple Music to Google Slides.

Part 1. Can I Set Apple Music as Background Music of Google Slides?

Before seeking ways to import Apple Music to Google Slides as background music, we have to make one thing clear – is it possible to set Apple Music as Google Slides background music? Well, the disappointing news is that you cannot directly add Apple Music to Google Slides. Apple Music is protected by an algorithm that is convenient for people to easily control what they’re playing. And due to the Digital Rights Management (DRM) on Apple Music, we can only stream music within the Apple Music app. It’s not available to transfer or upload Apple Music to other platforms or devices, let alone use it as BGM on Google Slides.

But that does not mean you can’t add Apple Music to Google Slides as background music. There are still some workarounds. And we can also try some third-party tools to convert Apple Music to common files. So that the music files are compatible with Google Slides.
