Benefits of converting Google Slides to PDF
PDF files are more widely compatible than Google Slides presentations. This means that you can share your PDF file with people who don’t have Google Slides installed.
PDF files are easier to print than Google Slides presentations. This is because PDF files are static, meaning that they don’t have any animations or interactive elements.
PDF files are more secure than Google Slides presentations. This is because PDF files can be password-protected.
keep in mind
The quality of the PDF file will depend on the quality of your original Google Slides presentation.
If you have any animations or interactive elements in your Google Slides presentation, they will not be preserved in the PDF file.
If you have any links in your Google Slides presentation, they will be converted to hyperlinks in the PDF file.
