In this article, we will show you how to add audio to Google Forms. Simply follow the process below. 

Can You Add Audio to Google Forms?

Yes, you can add audio to Google Forms, but it requires a workaround since Google Forms doesn't natively support embedding audio files directly. We will share how to easily set up this workaround in the next section. 

How to Add Audio To Google Forms

Follow the steps below to add audio to Google Forms. 

1. Upload Audio to Google Drive

Start by uploading your audio file to Google Drive. Go to Google Drive, click "New."

2. Set Audio File to 'Anyone with the Link Can View'

Once your file is uploaded, right-click on it and select "Get link." Set the link to "Anyone with the link" can view. This makes sure anyone taking your form can listen to the audio. After setting the file to be shareable, copy the link provided by Google Drive. You'll use this link in your Google Form.

3. Paste the Audio Link into Google Form Description

Go to your Google Form. Choose where you want to add the audio. You can add a new section or question. Use the description field to paste your audio link. Clearly instruct form takers to click the link to listen to the audio.

4. Perform a Test Submission of Your Form

Before sending out your form, test it. Click on the audio link you added to make sure it works and that you can hear the audio without issues.

5. Distribute Your Google Form with Audio

Now that your audio is embedded, share your form. You can send it directly via email, share a link, or embed it on a website. Ensure your form takers know there's an audio part by mentioning it in your form's introduction or email.
