Microsoft is releasing new features to Office 365, mainly PowerPoint, giving users more tools to help them with their presentations. Probably one of the most useful is what Microsoft is promoting as "Presenter Trainer", a tool that was announced last month and is currently in a public preliminary version. Improves oral publishing skills by providing comments on reversion in areas such as fill words and speech rhythm. Microsoft is launching the function to English speakers first, but promises to "add new capabilities and improve performance in the coming months."
PowerPoint in Office for the web is also gaining inking capabilities, allowing users to add annotations to their slides in real time. The new feature allows people to animate process flows and diagrams in the Slide Show, allowing them to interpret ideas in a more effective way.
Microsoft is also bringing templates to the Whiteboard application for desktop and iOS devices, including those used for brainstorming, KANBAN sprint planning, SWOT analysis, project planning, learning and others. The templates are currently in public preview for Windows 10 users, but they will reach iOS and iPadOS devices "in a few days."
Microsoft also 23 education-based 3D models created by Lifeliqe were added to Office as well, allowing teachers and students to use them in Powerpoint presentations. These models are now available to Office 365 subscribers on Windows now, although no news has been provided about their arrival on other platforms.
