    PowerPoint for mac do not have the Zoom feature, it is only available for Office 365 subscribers using Windows version of PowerPoint..why is that..I pay the same price and get less

    In a webinar on August 23rd, 2016 Derek Johnson, Principal PM Manager, Microsoft stated that Summary Zoom would be available by the end of 2016. Why don't we have it yet? I am running parallels and windows on my Mac so I have this feature and a couple of others in as well as some features in Excel, why are the two platforms treated the same?

    Zoom is critical to cross-platform offices. Please make the PC and Mac platforms capability-equivalent.

    PowerPoint (v16.9) in Office 365 for Mac needs the zoom feature.
    Please add ZOOM.
    Without this feature I likely will discontinue using powerpoint and move to Prezi or a similar tool.

    why is Zoom not available for MAC? First I had trouble using morph until I downloaded the 365 version, now Zoom is not here. Please add Zoom in mac!

    Please enable the zoom option when in presentation run mode. I'm sure it's quite simple to do

    Such a creative feature should be available on the Mac version of PowerPoint. I think Microsoft must change its attitude to Mac users and enable more of its features for them. There's a lot from the Windows version that is missing from the Mac version and no explanation is given as to why this is the case.

    Bringing Zoom for PowerPoint to Mac users would really help make it more attractive to creative users. Otherwise, they might as well keep using Prezi.

    As Microsoft described, it ‘bring your presentation to life’. I have seen many reasons to bring it to Mac. Thanks!

    I'm a professional presentation designer and have just acquired Office 365 for Mac, but did not know that the new features aren't there until opened PPT to try it... I feel very frustraded about it because there is no information of this restriction (features only available for Windows). I feel like signing out now...

    I'd like designers add zoom in/out feature in presenter view mode in Office 365 for MAC, as it has been done for Windows version.
    Thank you in advance.

    I am a partially sighted user of the mac. The native zoom in and out feature on the MacBook does not work properly in powerpoint. Specifically, when in Word, the zoom function follows the cursor and works just fine, but as soon as one types in powerpoint, focus is forced into the top left hand quadrant of the screen. This means it is infuriatingly difficult to edit and navigate PowerPoint with the Mac native adaptive software for the blind. Do something about this please! I am sick of Microsoft trailing behind Apple when it comes to people with disabilities.

    This is the only feature I cared about and it isn't available yet. Ridiculous.

    Mac PowerPoint should not be a step child for PC PowerPoint. Please enable the Zoom feature in PowerPoinf for Mac. Love it on the PC but prefer to work in the Mac environment.
