Can someone tell me how can I add page numbers to my Google Drive Presentation?

I've read that it should be under "Insert" but there's nothing even remotely relevant there. Here’s a screenshot:

Works for Docs, not Presentations. I'm not seeing any of those options. – Al E. Sep 27 '12 at 0:06
As of now, Google Slides does support master slide functionality, however page numbers are still not included in the newest release. – Mario Feb 3 '14 at 10:02

Unfortunately page numbers in Presentations hasn't been implemented yet.

We don't currently support master slide functionality, so you'll need to insert numbers and logos manually.


Its likely that i will be in the future - but no idea when.

Someone on another forum suggested a workaround by using the features built into Adobe Acrobat to add the page numbers (Open the document in acrobat, open the tools menu, goto Pages > Header and Footer > Add Footer/Header)

As of Dec 1, 2014 this feature was added. See announcement here: plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/fDKE7htJ2Ma – Tom Dec 4 '14 at 16:04
Pity that font color cannot be customized, so it's unreadable on dark background presentations. – Giovanni Toraldo Nov 10 '15 at 9:59

This feature was added to Google Slides in December 2014. See this help page for instructions on how to add numbers to slides.
