Microsoft Teams new feature to make your presentations better

Microsoft Teams is getting another feature that will allow you
to quickly deliver your presentations via PowerPoint. The
feature is called “PowerPoint Live” and it basically allows
presenters to manage their notes, slides, participants and
chats in a single view, and customize how the content appears
to the audience.

To use the new PowerPoint presentation feature in Teams, you
need to join the Office Insider program. Once updated, a new
option called “Present in Teams” will appear in PowerPoint and
it is the only feature you need to start the presentation in
your Microsoft Teams meeting.

With PowerPoint Live, you don’t have to share your screen with
the audience. You can click on the “Present in Teams” button to
start the presentation of the selected PowerPoint and avoid all
potential issues associated with screen-sharing. In other
words, you can now navigate between other apps, hide your
sensitive information and still conduct the presentation.

If you’re a presenter, PowerPoint live feature will also help
you access both the chat and your content at the same time in
Teams, which means you won’t be missing anything during your
presentation. You can also take advantage of advanced features
like slide notes and grid review to enhance your presentation.

For attendees, this means you can interact with content in the
presentation. For example, you click on hyperlinks and videos
and consume the content at your own pace.

Last month, Microsoft said that PowerPoint Live integration
could redefine the presentation experience and improve the
engagement rate.

The tech giant is still testing PowerPoint Live in Teams and
users must meet the following requirements to try out the
feature:

  • Use Microsoft Teams desktop latest version.
  • Store your presentation on OneDrive for Business or
    SharePoint.
  • Use the same account for Office and Teams, and join a Teams
    meeting before using the “Present in Teams” mode.

It also requires the Office 365 E3/A3/E5/A5 or Microsoft 365
for Government license.

In addition to PowerPoint Live support, Microsoft
Teams was recently updated with presenter view, which also
gives you full control over your content, so you can take
notes, engage in chats, and interact with your audience.

Presenter view is a private mode and it has been designed to
help presenters see everyone in one place.
