What's new and improved in Microsoft Office Version 2112 (Build 14712.20000)


New Record experience in PowerPoint helps tell your story

With the new Record experience in PowerPoint, you can make your presentations more impactful by recording videos with narration, enabling you to tell the story in your words. This feature allows you to bring all the components of the presentation together for easy sharing and viewing. The exportable video includes all recorded timings, narrations, ink, and laser pointer gestures, and also preserves any animations, transitions, and media. To enter the new experience, click the Record button in the top app bar, or click the Record tab and then select From Beginning (or From Current Slide).
