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 customise how and where you want 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 customise how and where they appear on slides.

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

How to activate Cameo for PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams?

  1. Participate as a presenter in a Teams meeting from a Teams desktop client.
  2. Click Share Tray to select/load a presentation with Cameo object already inserted and personalised 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 camera feed will automatically appear fully embedded and customized in the PowerPoint Live slides. You can switch to other presentation modes or back to the slide view at any time.
  4. In addition, the power of Cameo also allows for real-time camera settings to be changed in Teams , such as changing the background, camera source or automatically switching the presenter's live camera feed during "take control" in the 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
