This tutorial covers how to convert Word to PowerPoint. Usually, when you want to create a PowerPoint presentation from a Word document, you need to copy and paste the content from the Word document into PowerPoint. If there is a lot of content in your Word document, this method is certainly very inconvenient. Or if you rely on one of the online format converters, the output quality is almost never perfect.

Therefore, in this article I will introduce an easy and fast way to convert Word into PowerPoint with the help of latest features from Microsoft which has just been released. This feature lets you generate PowerPoint presentations from Word documents via the web version of Microsoft Word.

Before we begin, I will point out the limitations of the feature. For now, the feature is only available in English. Also, it doesn’t support Internet Explorer and Safari browsers.

This new feature also supports only text content at this time and other media content such as images will not be added automatically to the presentation. However, you can always add media to the presentation later.
