How to create a neon glow effect in Google Slides.

You can add a neon effect to your texts in Google Slides! And it’s super easy!

Go to Insert > Word art and write your text, hit enter. Customize your text font and then go to Fill Color and select a soft one, Go to border color and select its bright variant, select border weight and click on 3px (or more depending on the font you choose or the size of your Word Art).

Then go to Format options and select Drop shadow. Select the same color that you used for border and set 10% Transparency, 0% Distance and 50% or more for Blur Radius.

And that’s it!

ATTENTION GOOGLE SLIDES USERS: PLEASE, DO NOT REQUEST FOR ACCESS. If you are prompted to “Request for access·” (sometimes it happens when you are logged in more than one Google account or when you are logged in a Google for Education account and your IT Admin has blocked the access), you can try again by logging in a personal Gmail account, and signing out of all the other accounts.

The other workaround is for you to download the pptx file, upload it to your Google Drive, and open it as Google Slides.
