With cameo, you can insert your live camera feed directly on a PowerPoint slide. Then you can apply the same effects to your camera feed as you can to a picture or other object, including formatting, transitions, and styles.

Cameo is currently rolling out and will be available in the coming months to all Microsoft 365 subscribers.

Important:  This feature is only available to Microsoft 365 subscribers who have joined the Office Insider program. If you are a Microsoft 365 subscriber, make sure you have the latest version of Office.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Try it!

  1. Select Insert > Cameo. A placeholder for the camera feed will appear on the slide.

  2. Select the Preview icon  Camera button (off) in the placeholder to turn on the camera feed.

    Note: In a shared document, only you see your video feed. 

  3. In the Camera tab, select the arrow below the Preview button to select other cameras. Only one video feed can be used on a slide.

  4. Use the tab to apply effects like Camera Styles, Camera Shape, Camera Border, and Camera Effects. Use can also arrange or overlay the camera feed like you would any other picture or object on the slide or in the Navigation Pane.
