Microsoft adds Zoom feature to PowerPoint

Microsoft released PowerPoint way back in 1990 to become one of the most used applications in the world. This is no surprise since it comes with many features, with many a business man having made a presentation having used the software to do it. (Fun fact: PowerPoint was initially titled Presenter and was created by Forethought.)

If you are a fan of using PowerPoint to create awesome presentations, now you have a new tool at your disposal. The new  Zoom feature will allow you to easily create interactive, non-linear presentations.

According to Microsoft, using Zoom during a presentation will allow you to go from any point in your presentation to any other in any order you want.

The Slide Zoom will allow you to make the presentation more dynamic, which means that you will be able to navigate without any problems between slides in any order you like, all without interrupting the presentation’s flow. On the other hand, the Section Zoom will give you the freedom to go back to sections that you want to really focus on.

Office Insiders using PowerPoint 2016 on their Windows computers can take full advantage of the Zoom feature in three easy ways in order to build summary slides. Zoom Options can be accessed by opening the PowerPoint application, selecting the Format tab and then Zoom Tools.
