In other Office news, Microsoft recently released a plethora of new features for Current Channel subscribers on Windows. Microsoft’s last Office Preview build in the Beta Channel for Windows added a new rating question to the Polls app within Microsoft Teams, making it easier for the meeting organizers to get feedback from meeting attendees. Thanks to the meeting poll capability, meeting owners “can easily create and launch Rating polls to increase engagement and collect input from their meeting attendees, as well as share the results in real time. To create a Rating poll question, simply select Rating when creating a new poll in Teams.” Also, Current Channel users can find key documents in Visio with the Shared with Me list.

Microsoft also introduced several new features for Office Insiders on Mac. PowerPoint users on Mac are getting a new Cameo feature that allows users to insert a live camera feed anywhere in their presentation. To use it in your slide show, you can select Insert > Cameo. To use the feature, go to the Home tab and select Conditional Formatting > Manage Rules. Now, you can simply drag the edges of the dialog box and resize it as needed.
