  2. Embed live webpages into PPT

    Put simply, beyond embedding video (e.g., YouTube), it's crucial to allow embedding a live webpage on slides - not just a hyperlink, but a secure interactive page.

    There are many reasons - teaching, grabbing the latest news or stock information, etc.

    This is already possible in Windows..

    It's possible in Office 2013 on Windows to embed a live (secure) website into PowerPoint (http://speakingpractically.com/2015/06/01/need-to-show-a-website-while-you-present-two-quick-tricks-using-powerpoint/). There's also been a very popular Add-In (LiveWeb - http://skp.mvps.org/liveweb.htm)

    We agree with you all. This idea would make learning more interactive. We really wish we can build this for you. At this time, we cannot sign up for this idea. There are too many security and privacy concerns that are out of our control. Microsoft runs on trust and your information is important to us.

    We recommend that you use 3rd party add- in to accomplish this. We won’t recommend a specific one and will leave that decision up to you.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Thank you all again for your feedback! I want to remind you all that the PowerPoint for Mac 2016 versions and on still have the developer tools available.

    These tools can be found here:
    - Editor: Choose the Tools | Macro | Visual Basic Editor option
    - Macros: Choose the Tools | Macro | Macros… option
    - Add-Ins: Choose the Tools | Add-Ins… option

    We are always evolving the product and looking for ways to make it better. At this time, we can not prioritize this idea. However we will never say “never” to this idea. The good thing about User Voice is that the ideas always stay on the website so we can always go back and find old ideas.
