The Conferences i/o PowerPoint add-in allows presenters to use live content slides seamlessly inside slide decks for an immersive presentation.



The Conferences i/o Windows PowerPoint Add-In adds a Conferences i/o ribbon to Windows PowerPoint. This ribbon allows users to insert special Live Content slides into presentations. When running the presentation as a slideshow, the Add-In will use these special slides to show Live Content from a Conferences i/o session, such as a poll or the current list of Social Q&A questions.

Installing the Add-In

After downloading, we strongly recommend extracting the installer file from the downloaded ZIP before running the installer. On some operating systems, failing to extract the ZIP may cause the installer to partially fail (though you will not see an error message). See a helpful 90-second video tutorial on installing.
