Gone are the days of boring PowerPoint presentations, Microsoft has introduced a new feature to bring life to your presentations
At some point in our lives, we have had to deal with a “death by PowerPoint presentation” situation.
We have had to sit with situations that require us to convert a Word document into a PowerPoint presentation. In some instances, having to present long slides and dealing with the audience losing concentration along the way.
Although Microsoft cannot assist with people falling asleep during your presentations, they have some exciting new features that make creating and presenting PowerPoint presentations a creative experience.
Some of these new features include the ability to convert word documents into PowerPoint presentations. And new updates to Microsoft Teams to ensure that the presentation is engaging.
Microsoft 365 seeks to create a seamless ecosystem. Through the platform, Microsoft wants to be able to integrate apps in one creating a center to access all your business essentials. But these applications not only have to function well together, but they also need to be fully integrated.
With the latest Microsoft 365 features, the company can achieve just that. The new feature allows you to save hours of work by quickly exporting a word document into a PowerPoint presentation.
The AI-powered tool can apply different themes to the presentation, including images, icons, and more. You can make changes as you see fit using different design options.
The Microsoft Word application creates a presentation based on all the summarized sections of the word document.
Converting your Word document into a PowerPoint presentation can now be done following 4 simple steps. This feature is available in Word for the web.
Another new feature upgrade to Microsoft Team allows you to create engaging PowerPoint presentations. With Live Presentations in PowerPoint, audience members can see a presentation on their devices and read live subtitles in their preferred language while you speak.
They can even zoom in to see the slide clearly when using mobile devices. In addition to giving you feedback, sending live reactions, and reviewing previous slides.
To use Live Presentations, presenters must have a Microsoft 365 subscription. Audience members don’t need a subscription to participate in Live Presentations.
* Live Presentations are not supported for presenters in GCC, GCC-High, or DoD tenants.
Here are simple steps to follow creating engaging presentations:
