    Thank you for voting this request! If you are an Office 365 subscriber, you may now export your presentation to a video with a playback of the narration audio! Please upgrade to version 16.19(181109) or higher, and give it a try.

    Again, thank you for helping us improve the product, and please keep voting the other features on your wish list :)

        Ridiculous to have a movie with no sound--and also every person who does this has to take the time to search all over to figure out what the heck is wrong and learn that powerpoint for mac does not support this. Very frustrating. Please add this.

        WHAT THE F**K. This really wants me to organise a grassroots political movement against current intellectual property laws and support higher taxes on corporations.

        You got to be kidding me, this doesn't work with Mac????. Come on guys, what is the problem. Can't we all play in the same sandbox???

        I need it to export video with my movie or MP4. I paid for a subscription just for this purpose.

        I was so excited to find that 2018 finally allows exporting to MOV and MP4, and then super disappointed that the narration or any sound of embedded media did not export. Once again forced to go back to the Windows version. Please fix this!! This is really important.

        Spent multiple hours making a group project with narrated audio- will not export with sound - viewers must have pwpt to view- and they need to download the file to do so... such an inconvenience.

        Just wasted hours trying to export PP2016 presentation to MP4 and Mov to upload to Youtube - only then did I find out that audio isn't supported - even though you get the option to include it when exporting to video???

        It's absurd that this is not available with narration and also in the office 2016 version (not office365). Now I have to do a screen capture with the presentation playing because you didn't put this feature in the app.

        Don't get it when you export ur video, either u can't see ur pen notes, or audio sound. Then why u need export ur video?

        Excuse me.... this is 2018 with Instagram, tweeter and facebook....Not to mention that you made 365 to be completely cloud base...meaning uploading to various online application. This should have been done.... So Please and Thank you for completing this vital function.

        Hi PPT Product Team, I am not sure if I should also tweet this but Mac users including myself are still unable to access the audio feature on PPT for Macs. I see the request was made in June of 2016 and a response "Under Review" on Jan 24th 2018. I would like to know the status of this update and what your next steps are to complete this request. This is highly frustrating.

        What good is a video or recording without the audio. I just spent hours trying to make this work and now find out it isn't possible. What a stupid thing to omit. We should be able to make a PPT recording something to upload to YouTube easily.
