Microsoft Teams is adding some excellent features lately to beat the competitors in the business. It has introduced a new feature called “PowerPoint Live” that allows the users to quickly deliver PowerPoint presentations directly in Microsoft teams.

PowerPoint Live with an engaging experience provides a new level of delivering an online presentation. Both the presenter and attendee get the best remote engagement experience.

The presenter can manage notes, slides, participants, and chats in a single view. Also, the content view can be customized for the audience. Currently, this feature is available only for users who join Office Insider program and soon will be available for all in a future release. The user will find a new feature “Present in Teams” inside Powerpoint after updating the office.
