“I heard that a recording feature has been added to Google Slides but I can’t find it. Where is the Record button on Google Slides? Why isn’t there a Record button on my Google Slides?”

Yes, Google Slides now offers the recording feature and the Record button is in the top right corner of your Google Slides screen. However, the recording option is not available for all users. It is only available for the following Google Workspace editions:

  • Business Standard
  • Business Plus
  • Enterprise Starter
  • Enterprise Essentials
  • Enterprise Essentials Plus
  • Enterprise Standard
  • Enterprise Plus
  • Education Plus

Besides, there are other prerequisites for you to access the recording feature:

  • You can only record your presentation via Chrome.
  • You must have edit access to the slides.
  • You need to have enough Google Drive storage to create new recordings.

If you can’t see the Record button in Google Slides, that’s probably because you don’t fully meet these criteria. Fortunately, there are many third-party screen recorders available for recording presentations, such as SurFlex Online Free Screen Recorder. It is 100% free, online, with no watermark, and no time limit. It is compatible with Chrome and other browsers, allowing you to capture and save Google Slides presentations directly using your browser and save the video in HD quality. If you can’t find the native Record option on Google Slides, you can try this alternative tool to capture a presentation.
