New Zoom feature (Summary Zoom - Section Zoom - ...)


When will this feature (Use Zoom for PowerPoint to bring your presentation to life) will be available?

If you look at this What's new in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows, it should already be available in July 2016 ...


I have an Office 365 ProPlus subscription (16.0.6925.1038)


Someone got an idea?

Additional Info (Found on the internet): "For Office 365 for Business users, the feature is currently only available to First Release channel for commercial Office 365 subscribers. If you are not the admin in your tenant, please contact your IT or Office 365 global admin and share the following article with him/her to configure the settings and Office suite. "

I am on "Current Channel" with "First Release" enabled in the admin portal. I am on Version 1610 (Build 7466.2038). But it is still not available!


As per this, the "zoom" feature was released on August 16, 2016 with the Version 1607 (Build 7167.2040) in "Current Channel". And, I am on the November update in the "Current Channel", then why am I not seeing this feature?

I have build version 7369.2055 (First release for Deferred Channel) ...
I do not see it ... yet ...

Finally. Got the zoom feature automagically when the Version-1612 Build-7668.2074 update was applied. Strange!

Now I have PowerPoint 16.0.4498.1000 ... still not available ...

I just updated my 2016 version and Zoom was there.  It's really cool, but sometimes it acts flaky. I think it's me.
