Microsoft Makes Performance Improvements to PowerPoint Online

Microsoft continues to make improvements to its Office Online suite at a more rapid pace. Microsoft has been focused on making performance improvements to PowerPoint online.

Microsoft has completely re-engineered the text editor so that when a user is editing slides the layout looks more like the final result. The re-engineered text editor helps maintain a high fidelity view.

Performance and video playback optimizations have also been made by speeding up advancement of slides in the editor and by adding the ability to play back embedded YouTube videos. Updates will roll out this week.
