From here, choose a design. It may not be the permanent design as you can change it afterward. Write down your text after selecting the style. Now, a new tab, Shape Format, should be visible. If so, you need to switch to this tab and expand the Text Effects option from the WordArt Styles section.
Then, go to the Transform menu and select a design as per your requirements. Your custom text should be changed immediately, and you can check the preview as you hover your mouse.
In case you want to change the overall style of the text, you can expand the Shape Fill, Shape Outline, and Shape Effects options from the Shape Styles section and choose a style that suits your needs. However, the curve-style may not work if you insert a box around your text.
For your information, you can repeat the same steps to add more than one curved text in a PowerPoint slide.
