The Present Online feature is no longer available in most versions of PowerPoint for Windows. To present live to a remote audience, you can use PowerPoint Live in Teams or Live Presentations in PowerPoint for the web. 

Using PowerPoint for Windows, you can broadcast your PowerPoint presentation over the Internet to a remote audience. While you present the slide show inside PowerPoint, your audience members follow along in their web browsers.

Tip: If you're using a Mac consider sharing your presentation using Microsoft Teams. See Tip: Show PowerPoint slides in a meeting for more information.

In newer PowerPoint versions, you may deliver your presentation from PowerPoint by using the Office Presentation Service, a free, public service that allows others to follow along in their web browser. No setup is required. Use your free Microsoft account to get started.

In PowerPoint, close any open presentations that you don’t want to share.

    • Copy Link (so that you can paste it somewhere that other people can access it)

    • Send in email

  6. To end your online presentation, press Esc to get out of Slide Show View, and then on the Present Online tab, click End Online Presentation.
