Easily work with others and design beautiful presentations. Intuitive design tools make it easy to start from a theme, apply variants, align text and media and even build customized icons. When collaborating, co-authoring and replying comments make it easy to work with one version, and keep all important conversations in context.
Even sharing online is simple – even if your audience doesn’t have PowerPoint, you can project to their browser. And, when you present, you are in complete control behind the scene, keeping track of your notes, zooming in on specific slides and easily navigating between them.

What's new in PowerPoint 2013
Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 has a brand-new look: It’s cleaner and primed for use on tablets and phones, so you can swipe and tap your way through presentations. Presenter View automatically adapts to your projection set-up, and you can even use it on a single monitor. Themes now come with variations, which make it simpler to hone in on the look you want. And when you’re working with others, you can add comments to ask questions and get feedback.
Hassle-free Presenter - View Presenter View allows you to see your notes on your monitor while the audience only sees the slide. In previous releases, it was difficult to figure out who saw what on which monitor. The improved Presenter View fixes that headache and makes it simpler to work with.
Widescreen friendly - Much of the world’s TVs and video have gone to widescreen and HD formats, and so has PowerPoint. There’s a 16:9 layout, and new themes designed to take advantage of widescreen possibilities.
Start an online meeting from PowerPoint - Now you’ve got several ways to share a PowerPoint presentation over the Web. You can send out a link to the slides, or start a full-on Lync meeting that displays the deck with audio and IM. Your audience can join you from anywhere, on any device using Lync or the Office Presentation Service.
PowerPoint on touch devices - Now it’s possible to interact with PowerPoint on most any device including a Windows 8 PC. Using typical touch gestures, you can swipe, tap, scroll, zoom, and pan your way through your slides, and really feel the presentation.
Share and save your Office files to the cloud - The cloud is like file storage in the sky. You can get to it anytime you’re online. Now it’s easy to save your Office files to your own SkyDrive or to your organization’s site. From there you can access and share your PowerPoint presentations and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.
Comments - Now you can give feedback in PowerPoint with the new Comments pane. And you can show or hide comments and revisions.
Work together on the same presentation - You and your colleagues can work together on the same presentation, either with the desktop or online versions of PowerPoint, and see each other’s changes.
