How to Add a Venn Diagram to Google Slides

Google Slides offers many features similar to PowerPoint, such as ‘Diagrams and Shapes.’ The latter is a feature somewhat reminiscent of SmartArt Graphics. Below is an explanation of the various methods you can use to make an editable Venn diagram in Google Slides.

1. Create a Venn Diagram in Google Slides using Diagrams

Google Slide has a number of categories for diagrams that you can directly insert into your slides. To find a suitable illustration, go to Diagrams.

To ensure your Venn diagram can show relationships, adjust the transparency via Fill Color. This can be done either from the Transparent option at the bottom to make the shape completely transparent or via Custom to adjust the transparency and HEX.

You can format these shapes by selecting them and going to Fill Color to adjust the color and transparency of the shapes. Select Transparent from the bottom of the menu or Custom to customize the transparency and color HEX to create a transparent shape.

Venn diagrams can become increasingly complicated as new shapes are added to expand the scope of the diagram. This is why using readymade Google Slides templates can help make it easier for presenters to design and adjust their diagram slides quickly. However, presenters that enjoy a more hands-on experience in developing their slides can opt for ‘Diagrams’ or ‘Shapes’ to create Venn diagrams in Google Slides.
