Hi @ssilver18,

 

Unfortunately, our PowerPoint integration is currently only available for Windows. 

 

However, we do have a great Google Slides integration that works equally great! Would you be up for trying that in the meantime?

 

Let me know if you need any help with setting it up!

Hi @Alex - I second @ssilver18’s feature request. You’ve suggested using Google Slides “in the meantime”, does that mean PowerPoint for Mac compatibility is coming? And if so, would you have an ETA on this please? I’ve tried the Switcher app and that’s not quite what I am looking for.

Thanks

Hi @pmteam,

The Slido for PowerPoint integration on Mac is definitely something that we are looking into but unfortunately, we don’t have an ETA for it right now. That’s why we recommend using our Google Slides integration for now, as it’s available for both Mac and Microsoft users. I do realize that it’s not the best solution for Mac PowerPoint users, to just switch to another tool just to use Slido. 

As an easy and quick fix to try that we used in the “old-days” (pre-integrations) is to set up 2 screens on your Mac - one with slides and one with Slido wall and simply swipe between them, if your presentation setup allows that. 

 

I’d love to hear your feedback on Switcher and why it’s not a working that well for you?

Any updates on this request for Slido for Powerpoint for Mac?

Hi @GregSmith - unfortunately, I have no more updates at the moment. 

I’ll make sure to update this thread once we have more information about this feature 😊

 

Let me know if there’s anything else that I can help with in the meantime! 

I have a Mac PC and invested in the Slido subscription to enable me to integrate Slido into PowerPoint. Unfortunately the only option for integration provided by Slido is a Download for Windows.  I need a Download for a Mac. Has anyone experienced this problem and overcome it.  If so can you please share your solution

Hi @Barbara Scrugham,

Unfortunately, we currently only offer our PowerPoint integration for Windows. Although we have the integration for Mac on our roadmap, we don’t have a concrete ETA for it. 

 

What I can recommend for now is to try our Google Slides integration or use Slido as a standalone app, without integrating it. 

The latter is actually quite simple on Mac as you can simply set up two screens and have the Slido Present Mode open on one and your presentation on the other and whenever you need to jump to Slido, you simply swipe between the screens on your trackpad. You can then simply moderate Slido right form your Present Mode using the Control Panel in your bottom-left corner. 

 

I apologize for the inconvenience and please let me know if you need help setting up 😊
