“How to add Spotify music to PowerPoint Presentation as background music? – I’ve watched numerous videos and read several posts right here about how to embed an audio file into a PowerPoint presentation, but they all refer to adding saved music files in File Explorer/on the hard drive. The music I want to add into my PowerPoint can be found on Spotify, YouTube, Napster, etc. I am, therefore, not able to save those songs to my hard drive. Surely in this day and age where online content has long since surpassed content from CD’s or DVD’s, there has to be a way to migrate music from an online source into a PowerPoint presentation. Do you know any way to add Spotify music to PowerPoint presentation? And how to put Spotify music on PowerPoint presentation? Your help would be most appreciated.”
