M365 Changelog: (Updated) Cameo in PowerPoint Live

MC395422 – Updated March 3, 2023: Microsoft is delaying this release to GCC-High and DoD organizations to ensure an optimal experience. We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed. Thank you for your patience.

With Cameo in PowerPoint Live, users will be able to integrate Teams camera feed into PowerPoint presentation and customize how and where they want to appear on slides.

⁠Cameo supports all personalization properties like any other Office graphical object such as those offered by Pictures, Gifs and Shapes. This includes layering Cameo between content, adding motion effects such as morph, changing styles, shapes etc. 

Limitation: – Cameo in PowerPoint Live will not be shown in the recording, web or mobile clients.

When this will happen:

  • Production will begin rolling out in early September 2022 and expect to complete by mid-September 2022.
  • GCC will begin rolling out mid-December 2022 (previously early December 2022) and expect to complete by end of December 2022 (previously mid-December 2022).
