    Not only is it not available. if you've created a presentation with this feature on PC, and transfer it to MAC, and then edit one of the slides, the edit does not come through on the summary slide. Super frustrating.

    What are you waiting for? People will leave PPT for Mac and go to Prezi if you do not enable Zoom for Powerpoint for Mac.

    I use Office 2016 and have a 365 for business account. Yet sadly I do have the Zoom button at all. I'm a school teacher and would love to teach them how to do this. A bit upsetting.

    Perhaps I'll have to teach them Prezi instead

    Please add this functionality. When you or your company or institution is paying for product licenses, we at least expect the same functionality. Providing users on other platforms/OS's than Windows limited features is in my opinion a very bad businessplan for your userbase. As a Mac and Windows user i would to see this feature on both platforms.

    +1 too.

    I just found out this can be done on windows only. We need this for Mac. And thank you by the way for integrating the font embedding capability on Mac.

    I'm in the process of making a non linear presentation it would have been great to be able to use PowerPoint, I'll have to make it on Prezi for the time being.

    Please add the zoom toll to Power Point for Mac. I do not see any reason why this features is not already implemented.

    I am dumbfounded. I can't locate zoom feature! Then I find this post. It's bizarre to me that this zoom feature would be limited to PC users and not on both MAC and PC versions. As a Brand Designer on MAC, this is extremely disappointing, especially when I want to produce the highest level of impact in the PowerPoint presentations I create, with the most innovative tools. PLEASE don't limit the MAC designers! Add it today!

    I appreciate to be able to vote to help setting up priority in your backlog.
    Anyway I don't understand why a same program will have different functionalities on different OS. Unless there is technical reasons. In a mixed environment more than being frustrating, it could be an issue.

    Fully agree. The "summary zoom" feature really should be available on Mac as well. BTW. Obviously important to ensure people can use Powerpoint in a "Prezi-style"...

    How is the progress coming along? I literally bought the new version so that I could do this, it wasn't clearly advertised that the mac version would be created inferior.

    Yes to adding Zoom feature on Mac. That should already be considered when they launch the feature, "available for Mac and PC"
