    I love Office 365 for Mac, with its vast improvements on previous versions. Zoom is a feature I have been waiting for for some time and I was disappointed to find that it was not available for Mac. I am presenting at a conference this week and this time really need a Zoom feature for the information I am presenting. A linear flow isn't going to work, as the information is nebulous. Because I cannot yet do it on my Mac, I'll probably need to do it on Prezi. The result (for me and the millions of Mac users) is free marketing for your competitors and no free marketing for Microsoft, and moreover, a loss of capital, goodwill and confidence from your Mac-based users, plus my presentations will not benefit from all the features of Powerpoint 365. Mac users can understand a few months or a year delay in providing this feature to your competitor OS, but given we are paying the same price, this delay does not sit well. I urge you to provide this feature post haste!

    a zoom function is the backbone to many of my presentations, i am forced to use Prezi instead without.

    As the entire Marketing department in my company, I need the same functionality with PowerPoint as everyone else in the company. Please do better about keeping the Mac version at parity with the Windows version. Thank you.

    Yes, I too would find the zoom feature extremely helpful for the work I do. I look forward to this feature being added to my company's 365 subscription version.

    I respectfully request from your prestigious company to incorporate the Zoom feature to Mac. I am amazed everytime there is a new feature in PowerPoint since I preferred using it because its user-friendly and I'm comfortable in utilizing it.
    I hope our request will be considered. Hoping for a favorable response.
    Thank you and more power.

    Just installed latest powerpoint for mac because i saw somebody zoomed in on a slide!! Only to realise that the feature's not available for mac users. Could we please have this in the mac version.

    Zoom feature seems like a very useful and modern feature to use for presentations and not having it because it´s mac, when we all paid the same price to get Office 365, seems a bit absurd... not sure who sets priorities but this should be one of them!

    Guys I am sorry to tell you but you are doing something very wrong on your marketing procedures.. I am a Mac user so I acquired the MS Office 365 for Mac. Every communication I receive or every time I enter your site I am earmarked "Mac User". So I do not understand how you can send me an email promoting the New Zoom Feature and it is not active in Mac. This is a MISLEADING PROMOTION. The mail does not specify that it is only for Windows. After downloading the update and wait for the time to install, come to realize that the feature is not there is somehow disturbing. I called Customer Srv looking for an answer and after long minutes of wait and silence the Rep came back with a phony story on how Windows and Mac negotiate software developments (??). Guys be serious. This kind of little details taint the prestige and reputation of a huge Corporation like Microsoft. The devil is in the details.... DO SOMETHING AND DO IT FAST!!
