πŸŽ₯ Microsoft Teams: How to activate and use Cameo in PowerPoint Live?

Cameo is a new PowerPoint experience that seamlessly integrates your team's camera feed into your presentation, allowing you to customize how and where you want it to appear on your slides and offering layout recommendations for optimal viewing.

Teams | What is Cameo in PowerPoint Live?

Cameo in PowerPoint Live allows users to integrate the presenter's Teams-camera feed into PowerPoint presentations and customize how and where they want to appear on slides.

Cameo supports all the personalization features like any other Office graphic object, such as those offered by Images, Gifs and Shapes. This includes layering cameo between content, adding motion effects such as morph, changing styles and shapes.

How to activate Cameo for PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams?

  1. Join a Teamsmeeting as a presenter from a Teams desktop client.
  2. Click Share Tray to select/load a presentation with Cameo object already inserted and personalized in the PowerPoint slide.
  3. As soon as Cameo is detected on a slide in PowerPoint Live, we automatically switch to the enhanced presentation experience with Cameo. On a Cameo slide, your Teams-camerafeed automatically appears fully embedded and customized in the PowerPoint Live slides. You can switch to other presenter modes or back to slide view at any time.
  4. In addition, the power of Cameo also makes it possible to change real-time camera settings in Teams such as changing the background, camera source or automatically switching the presenter's live camera feed during "take control" in PowerPoint Live mode.

Is there a way to disable the cameo function in teams/powerpoint live once it goes live for an organization?

Kind regards
