How to Convert to PPT in the Google Slides iPhone App
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.4.1. I am using the most current version of the Google Slides app that was available when this article was written.

Step 2: Touch the three dots icon at the top-right of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Share & export option.
Step 4: Tap the Save as Powerpoint (.pptx) button.
This adds a Powerpoint copy of the file to Google Drive. If you return to the file selection screen in Google Slides you can tap the three dots next to the file.
Then select the Send a copy option.
Finally you can choose the Save to Files button and save the Powerpoint file to your iPhone, or select any of the other options to share the file with someone else.
