The 8 Best Free PowerPoint Alternatives

Professional results for tight budgets

beste powerpoint alternative

  • Swansea University, Staffordshire University

Microsoft PowerPoint is a great tool for creating professional-looking slideshows and presentations. However, the home version requires a Microsoft 365 subscription, and the free mobile app locks some features behind the sub as well. Fortunately, there are plenty of free PowerPoint software alternatives out there. Here's a look at some of the best options and how they compare to PowerPoint. 

Best Direct PowerPoint Replacement: Google Slides

Very similar to PowerPoint.

Free to use. 

Compatible with PowerPoint.

An internet connection is strongly recommended. 

Where there's a need for an app, Google seems to have it covered. Google Slides is its PowerPoint equivalent and it's a lot like Microsoft's app. Very simple to use and offering full compatible with the alternative, you can access Google Slides via your browser and easily create custom presentations with audio and your own images, all entirely for free. It also offers great live collaboration features for teamwork purposes.

The only minor downside is you need an internet connection to at least get started but the service does also work offline with presentations syncing once you're back online.

Best for Designers: Prezi

Video editing included.

Can easily make data visualizations. 

Stylish user interface.

Free option is pretty basic.

No support.

Presentations viewable by all.

Prezi is a great option for designers who have a vision but aren't technically proficient at achieving it. Its simple drag and drop interface makes it a breeze to organize your presentation just how you want it. Backed up with other Prezi apps that mean you can create videos or more stylish data visualizations than simple graphs, it's ideal for industries that are more visual than others. A series of pre-made templates makes it all the more attractive. 

Prezi isn't as free as it seems though. To get the full wealth of features like advanced image editing, offline access, and narration, you'll need to pay a subscription fee.

Best for Quick Results: Zoho Show

A theme for every occasion.

Quick to create something.

Intuitive interface.

Need to be online to use it.

Simple to use yet highly effective is the sweet spot for quick results, and that's certainly the case with Zoho Show. You might need to be online to use it, but it's worth the connection with an intuitive user interface that adapts to what you need to do. You can easily embed videos, tweets, and images into your presentations with some neat transition effects making things more interesting. 

Collaboration tools further sweeten the deal with annotation features meaning you can work together well as a team and fast.

Best for Animations: Powtoon

Great animation tools.

Easy to use.

Can export to social media platforms.

Branding applied on free presentations.

More about animations than slideshows. 

PowToon tackles PowerPoint presentations from a slightly different angle than a lot of its competitors. It's primarily great for creating full animations and videos rather than presentations that you would click through and present yourself. That lends itself perfectly to the internet which is why it's so useful that you can export your presentations to various forms of social media. 

With a drag and drop template, you can create something within about 20 minutes from your browser. The free version bundles in branding logos so viewers will always know you've used PowToon to create them but that's a small price to pay for an otherwise very accessible and simple to use piece of software. 

Best for Mass Branding: Renderforest

Plenty of options for expanding branding.

300MB cloud storage for free.

Unlimited exports.

Exports can be low in quality.

Content is watermarked.

RenderForest thinks of itself as more than just a PowerPoint alternative. It tackles everything you might need from creating logos to designing promo videos, music visualizations, landing pages, and websites. That's on top of its extensive animations and intro creation. That might sound intimidating but the service keeps things simple, so it won't take you long to mock something up and develop it.

Stick to the free version and there are some restrictions such as branding on your videos, lower quality logos, and so forth, but it's a solid start for an otherwise entirely free service. In particular, if you just need to concoct a quick 3-minute video for a presentation, RenderForest has you covered.

Best for Non-Designers: Visme

Plenty of templates to choose from.

Can set up five projects at once.

Charts and widgets support.

Limited cloud storage.

Visme branding on free plan.

Been asked to make a presentation and you don't know where to start? Visme is perfect for those that aren't well versed with graphics as it offers an extensive template library. The free plan limits your options a little but there are still some decent choices here. In addition, the service provides cool ways to make stats and data look exciting thanks to chart and widget support. It's all done through a simple drag and drop interface too that makes it super simple to add video and embed other content. 

Just bear in mind that storage options are a little limited and everything on the free plan will contain Visme branding. 

Best for Office Replacement: LibreOffice Impress

Full program rather than browser-based.

Extensive support. 

Similar experience to Microsoft Office.

Requires installation. 

Not quite as intuitive as alternatives.

LibreOffice is a popular free alternative to Microsoft Office, so it makes sense to use LibreOffice Impress if you want the closest experience to Microsoft's package. Unlike most of the others here, you need to install LibreOffice on your PC or Mac which means it's no good for Chromebooks or moving between different systems. However, in exchange, you get an intuitive experience that makes it simple to create slideshows, whether you're handing them out to a class or conference afterwards, or simply projecting them on screen. 

Bear in mind you have to seek out templates yourself though which may be off-putting for the least technically minded user out there. 

Download for:

Best for Apple Users: Keynote

Simple to use. 

Apple Pencil support. 

Cloud based as well as app based.

App is only on Apple devices.

Keynote is Apple's direct competitor to Microsoft PowerPoint and it's a great alternative, especially if you're a Mac user. With app support for iOS and Mac, it takes seconds to get started. Alternatively, PC users can use Keynote via the iCloud website and easily work across multiple devices. 

One of the best features is the ability to use the Apple Pencil on an iPad to create diagrams or illustrations making it great for skilled artists. As well as that, Apple provides plenty of convenient templates for personal and professional projects.

The best presentation software in 2023

These powerpoint alternatives go beyond the basics..

Hero image with logos of the best presentation software

The latest presentation apps have made it easier than ever to format slides and create professional-looking slideshows without giving off a "this is a template" vibe. Even standard PowerPoint alternatives have updated key features to make it easier than ever to collaborate and create presentations quickly, so you can spend more time prepping for your actual presentation.

If, like me, you've been using Google Slides unquestioningly for years, it's a whole new world out there. The newest crop of online presentation tools go way beyond the classic slideshow experience, with new features to keep your audience's attention, streamline the creation process with AI, and turn slide decks into videos and interactive conversations.

I've been testing these apps for the past few years, and this time, I spent several days tinkering with the top presentation software solutions out there to bring you the best of the best.

The best presentation software

Beautiful.ai for AI-powered design

Prezi for non-linear, conversational presentations

Powtoon for video presentations

Genially for interactive, presenter-less presentations

Pitch for collaborating with your team on presentations

Zoho Show for a simple presentation app

Gamma for generative AI features

What makes the best presentation app?

How we evaluate and test apps.

All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who've spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it's intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We're never paid for placement in our articles from any app or for links to any site—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier blog .

When looking for the best presentation apps, I wanted utility players. After all, slideshows are used for just about everything, from pitch decks and product launches to class lectures and church sermons. With that in mind, here's what I was looking for:

Pre-built templates. The best presentation tools should have attractive, professional-looking templates to build presentations in a hurry.

Sharing and collaboration options. Whether you plan to share your webinar slides later, or you just want to collaborate with a coworker on a presentation, it should be easy to share files and collaborate in real-time.

Flexibility and customization options. Templates are great, but top presentation apps should enable you to customize just about everything—giving you the flexibility to build exactly what you need.

Affordability. Creating compelling presentations is important, but you shouldn't have to bust your budget to make it happen. With capable free tools on the market, affordability is a top consideration.

Standalone functionality. There's no reason to use multiple tools when one can do it all, so I didn't test any apps that require and work on top of another presentation app like PowerPoint or Google Slides.

Familiar, deck-based UI. For our purposes here, I only tested software that uses slides, with the familiar deck-based editor you expect from a "presentation" tool (versus, for example, a video creation app).

While many apps now offer AI features in one way or another, I found many of these features to be lacking still—they're often slow, struggle to pull in relevant imagery, and yield wildly inconsistent designs. For that reason, I opted not to make AI features a strict requirement (for now!), and I've still included apps that don't offer AI. (Of course, if you opt for one of those, you can still easily get AI-generated images from a separate tool and copy them into your presentation app of choice.)

Beyond that, I also looked for presentation apps that brought something unique to the table—features above and beyond what you can get for free from a legacy solution like PowerPoint or Google Slides. (And I opted not to test any brand new apps that are still in beta, since there are so many established options out there.)

Here's what my testing workflow looked like:

I went through any onboarding or guided tutorials.

I created a new deck, scanning through all available templates, noting how well-designed they were (and which were free versus paid).

I added new slides, deleted slides, edited text and images, and played around with other content types.

I changed presentation design settings, like color schemes and background images.

I reviewed and tested the sharing and collaboration options.

I tested out presenter view (when available).

After my first round of testing, I went back into the top performers to test any unique or niche features like AI, brand settings, interactive content, and more. With that, these are the best presentation apps I found—each one really brings something different or radically easy to the table.

The best presentation software: at a glance

The best free presentation software, canva (web, windows, mac, android, ios).

Canva, our pick for the best free presentation app

Canva pros:

Excellent free plan

Tons of amazing templates for all use cases


Canva cons:

The Magic Design AI tool is still inconsistent and not super impressive

Canva offers one of the most robust free plans of all the presentation apps I tested. The app delays account creation until after you've created your first design, so you can get started building your presentation in seconds. Choose from an almost overwhelming number of beautiful templates (nearly all available for free), including those designed specifically for education or business use cases.

Anyone who's accidentally scrolled too far and been bumped to the next slide will appreciate Canva's editor interface, which eliminates that problem altogether with a smooth scroll that doesn't jump around. Choose from a handful of preset animations to add life to your presentations, or browse the library of audio and video files available to add. And Canva also has a number of options for sharing your presentation, including adding collaborators to your team, sharing directly to social media, and even via QR code.

Present directly from Canva, and let audience members submit their questions via Canva Live. Once you share a link to invite audience members to your presentation, they can send questions for you to answer. As the presenter, you'll see them pop up in your presenter view window, so you can keep the audience engaged and your presentation clear. Alternatively, record a presentation with a talking head bubble—you can even use an AI presenter here—to share remotely.

Canvas has added a number of AI-powered tools , but I wasn't super impressed by them yet. When I asked the Magic Design tool to generate a presentation from scratch, for example, the result was a bunch of unrelated images, inconsistent design, and surface-level copy. These features will likely improve in time, but for now, you're better off starting from one of Canva's many great templates.

Canva pricing: Free plan available; paid plans start at $119.99/year for 1 user and include additional features like Brand Kit, premium templates and stock assets, and additional AI-powered design tools.

The best presentation app for AI-powered design

Beautiful.ai (web, mac, windows).

Beautiful.ai pros:

True AI design

No fussing around with alignment

Still allows for customization

Beautiful.ai cons:

No free plan

Generative AI features aren't great yet

If you're like me, editing granular spacing issues is the absolute worst part of building a presentation. Beautiful.ai uses artificial intelligence to take a lot of the hassle and granular design requirements out of the presentation process, so you can focus on the content of a presentation without sacrificing professional design. If I needed to make presentations on a regular basis, this is the app I'd use.

Many apps have recently added AI design features, but Beautiful.ai has been doing it for years—and they've perfected the UX of AI design, ensuring the tool's reign as the most streamlined and user-friendly option for AI design.

The editor is a little different from most presentation apps, but it's still intuitive—and you'll start off with a quick two-minute tutorial. When creating a new slide, scroll through "inspiration slides" to find a layout you like; once you choose, the app will pull the layout and automatically adapt it to match the design of the rest of your presentation.

With 10 themes, several templated slides, over 40 fully-designed templates, and 23 different color palettes to choose from, Beautiful.ai strikes a perfect balance between automation and customization.

While Beautiful.ai doesn't offer a free plan, paid plans are reasonably priced and offer sharing and collaboration options that rival collab-focused apps like Google Slides. And speaking of Google, you can connect Beautiful.ai with Google Drive to save all your presentations there.

Note: I did test the newly released generative AI feature (called DesignerBot) and felt it wasn't much to write home about. It's great for adding individual slides to an existing presentation—automatically choosing the best layout and matching the design to the rest of the deck—but as with most other apps, it struggled to generate a quality presentation from scratch.

Beautiful.ai pricing: Plans start at $12/month for unlimited slides, AI content generation, viewer analytics, and more. Upgrade to a Team plan for $40/user/month to get extra collaboration and workspace features and custom brand controls.

If you're a founder looking for an AI presentation tool for your pitch deck, Slidebean is a great Beautiful.ai alternative for startups. The app offers a number of templates; a unique, content-first outline editor; and AI design help that you can toggle on or off for each slide. I didn't include it on the list mainly because of the price: the free plan is quite limited, and the paid all-access plan starts at $228/year.

The best presentation app for conversational presentations

Prezi (web, mac, windows, ios, android).

Prezi interface

Prezi pros:

Doesn't restrict you to standard presentation structure

Lots of customization options

Prezi Video lets you display a presentation right over your webcam video

Prezi cons:

Steep learning curve

Struggling to squeeze information into a basic, linear presentation? Give Prezi a try. Unlike nearly all other presentation apps on the market, Prezi Present doesn't restrict the structure of your presentation to a straight line. The editor focuses on topics and subtopics and allows you to arrange them any way you want, so you can create a more conversational flow of information.

With the structural flexibility, you still get all the same customization features you expect from top presentation software, including fully-editable templates. There's a learning curve if you're unfamiliar with non-linear presentations, but templates offer a great jumping-off point, and Prezi's editor does a good job of making the process more approachable.

Plus, Prezi comes with two other apps: Prezi Design and Prezi Video. Prezi Video helps you take remote presentations to a new level. You can record a video where the presentation elements are displayed right over your webcam feed. Record and save the video to share later, or connect with your video conferencing tool of choice (including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet) to present live.

Prezi pricing: Free 14-day trial and a free plan that includes up to 5 visual projects; paid plans start at $5/month and include additional features like private presentations and Prezi Present.

The best presentation app for video presentations

Powtoon (web, ios, android).

Powtoon pros:

Timing automatically changes based on the content on the slide

Can toggle between slideshow and video

Can orient presentation as horizontal, vertical, or square

Powtoon cons:

Limited free plan

Powtoon makes it easy to create engaging videos by orienting the editor around a slide deck. Editing a Powtoon feels just like editing a presentation, but by the time you finish, you have a professional video. 

You can edit your slides at any time, and when you hit play, a video plays through your deck—the feel is almost like an animated explainer video. Each slide includes the animations you choose and takes up as much time as is needed based on the content on the slide. Powtoon figures the timing automatically, and you can see in the bottom-right of the editor how much time is used on your current slide versus the total presentation. If you ever want to present as a slide deck, just toggle between Slideshow and Movie.

You'll likely need to subscribe to a paid plan to get the most out of Powtoon—like creating videos longer than three minutes, downloading them as MP4 files, and white-labeling your presentations—but doing so won't break the bank. Plus, you'll unlock tons of templates complete with animations and soundtracks.

One of my favorite Powtoon features is the ability to orient your video: you can choose horizontal orientation (like a normal presentation) or opt for vertical (for mobile) or square (for social media). When your presentation is ready, you can publish straight to YouTube, Wistia, Facebook Ads, and any number of other locations.

Powtoon pricing: Limited free plan available; paid plans start at $20/month and include white-labeling, priority support, additional storage, and more.

The best presentation app for interactive presentations

Genially (web).

Genially, our pick for the best presentation app for interactive presentations

Genially pros:

Don't need a presenter (it's interactive)

You can set universal branding guidelines

Unlimited creations on the free plan

Genially cons:

Free plan has some limitations worth looking into (e.g., can only make public presentations)

While many presentation apps are built for presenter-led decks, Genially 's interactive features and animated templates make it easy to build a self-led presentation. A variety of interactive buttons allow you to show viewers additional context on hover, have them skip to any page of your deck, and let them navigate to external links.

This presentation program offers a bunch of searchable templates, including some for business proposals, reports, social media presentations, and more (though most of those are available on premium plans only). Genially also includes Smart blocks —templated blocks of content for elements like data visualizations and image galleries.

My favorite feature is the brand settings. Premium users can set universal branding guidelines that include your logo, color scheme, fonts, images, and backgrounds, among other options. Think of them like a custom template, created and customized by you, that the whole team can use. Once set, your team can easily create on-brand presentations that automatically apply your brand settings, without even thinking about it.

Plus, Genially supports additional content like training materials, infographics, and interactive images—all subject to your brand presets.

Genially pricing: Free plan available with unlimited creations and views and access to templates; paid plans start at $7.49/month and include additional download options, privacy controls, offline viewing, premium templates, and more.

The best presentation app for collaborating with your team

Pitch (web, mac, windows, ios, android).

Pitch, our pick for the best presentation software for collaborating with your team

Pitch pros:

Google levels of collaboration

Assign slides to specific team members

Start live video calls straight from decks

Pitch cons:

User interface is a little different than you're used to

Need to collaborate on presentations with your team? Pitch is a Google Slides alternative that gets the job done. As far as decks go, Pitch includes all the beautifully-designed templates, customizability, and ease of use you expect from a top-notch presentation tool. But the app really shines when you add your team.

The right-hand sidebar is all about project management and collaboration: you can set and update the status of your deck, assign entire presentations or individual slides to team members, plus comment, react, or add notes. Save custom templates to make future presentations even easier and faster.

You can also invite collaborators from outside your company to work with you on individual decks. And if you opt for a paid plan, Pitch introduces workspace roles, shared private folders, and version history.

The "Go live" feature is a personal favorite—with just a click on the camera icon in the top-right, you can start a live video call. Any team members who open the presentation can hop in and collaborate in real-time. 

Pitch pricing: Free plan offers unlimited presentations, custom templates, and live video collaboration; paid plans start at $8/user/month for additional workspace features, presentation analytics, and more.

The best simple presentation app

Zoho show (web, ios, android, chrome).

Zoho Show, our pick for the best simple presentation app

Zoho Show pros:

Simple and easy to use

Version history and ability to lock slides

Completely free

Zoho Show cons:

Templates are pretty basic

If you're looking for a simple, yet capable presentation app that's a step up from Google Slides, Zoho Show is a great option. It's completely free to use, offers a clean, intuitive editor, and includes a number of great templates.

While the handful of "Themes" offered are on the basic side, Zoho templates boast a more modern and professional design than much of what Google Slides or PowerPoint offer. And I love that you can set the font and color scheme for the whole template, right from the start.

The app doesn't skimp on collaboration or shareability either. You can invite collaborators via email or shareable link, and comments and version history make it easy to work together on presentations. Once you're ready to share, you can even broadcast your presentation to a remote audience right from within Zoho. Plus, you can one-click lock slides to prevent any more editing or hide individual slides to customize your presentation for different audiences.

You can even connect Zoho Show to Zapier , so you can do things like automatically create a presentation when something happens in one of the other apps you use most.

Zapier is the leader in no-code automation—integrating with 6,000+ apps from partners like Google, Salesforce, and Microsoft. Build secure, automated systems for your business-critical workflows across your organization's technology stack. Learn more .

Zoho Show pricing: Free

The best presentation app for generative AI

Gamma (web).

Gamma, our pick for the best presentation app for generative AI

Gamma pros:

Creates fully fleshed-out presentations from a prompt

Chatbot-like experience

Can still manually edit the presentation

Gamma cons:

Not as much granular customization

I tested a lot of apps claiming to use AI to up your presentation game, and Gamma 's generative features were head and shoulders above the crowd.

Simply give the app a topic—or upload an outline, notes, or any other document or article—approve the outline, and pick a theme. The app will take it from there and create a fully fleshed-out presentation. It's far from perfect, but Gamma produced the most useful jumping-off point of all the AI presentation apps I tested. 

Here's the key: Gamma is much more geared toward the iterative, chatbot experience familiar to ChatGPT users. Click on the Edit with AI button at the top of the right-hand menu to open the chat, and you'll see suggested prompts—or you can type in your own requests for how Gamma should alter the presentation.

Once you've done all you can with prompts, simply close the chat box to manually add the finishing touches. While you do sacrifice some granular customizability in exchange for the AI features, you can still choose your visual theme, change slide layouts, format text, and add any images, videos, or even app and web content.

Gamma pricing: Free plan includes unlimited users, 1 custom theme, 400 AI deck credits, and basic view analytics; upgrade to the Pro plan ("coming soon," as of this writing) for $10/user/month to get additional AI credits, advanced view analytics, custom fonts, and more.

What about the old standbys?

You might notice a few major presentation players aren't on this list, including OGs Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and Google Slides. These apps are perfectly adequate for creating basic presentations, and they're free if you have a Windows or Mac device or a Google account.

I didn't include them on the list because the presentation space has really developed in the last several years, and after testing them out, I found these behemoths haven't kept pace. If they weren't made by Microsoft/Apple/Google, I might not even be mentioning them. They're pretty basic tools, they're behind the curve when it comes to templates (both quantity and design), and they don't offer any uniquely valuable features like robust team collaboration, branding controls, video, and so on.

Some of these companies (think: Microsoft and Google) are openly working on some pretty impressive-sounding AI features, but they haven't been widely released to the public yet. Rest assured, I'm watching this space, and the next time we update this article, I'll retest tools like PowerPoint and Google Slides to see what new features are available.

In any case, if you're reading this, you're probably looking for an alternative that allows you to move away from one of the big 3, and as the presentation platforms featured above show, there's a ton to gain—in terms of features, usability, and more—when you do.

The 7 Best Free PowerPoint Alternatives for Presentations

Microsoft PowerPoint is great, but what if you can't afford it? Here are the best free PowerPoint alternatives for presentations.

Microsoft PowerPoint has been around for a long while and so far it has served users well. However, because it's a paid program, not everyone can afford it.

Thankfully, there are many options available for users who want the functionality of Microsoft PowerPoint in a free-to-use package. In fact, some of them don't even require any downloads and are completely web-based.

1. Google Slides

By far the most popular PowerPoint alternative out there, Google Slides shines when it comes to collaboration. Multiple people can work simultaneously on a presentation and add new slides.

This is further strengthened by its availability. Google Slides works on your web browser and has apps for both iOS and Android.

Additionally, Google Slides keeps a record of all the changes users have made to a presentation, and you can easily restore your slideshow to a previous version. While anyone with a Gmail account can use Google Slides, G Suite users get added data protection.

Compared to PowerPoint, the number of templates, animation forms, and fonts is somewhat lacking. However, businesses tend to overlook these shortcomings on a day-to-day basis.

While Canva is primarily known as a photo editor and design tool, it is also a competent MS PowerPoint alternative.

One of Canva's main strengths is its ease of use. There are many beginner tutorial videos on the website if users do not understand something. Complete beginners can easily navigate through the minimalistic interface.

With the free version of Canva, you get access to over 8000+ presentation templates that exponentially speed up your workflow. Additionally, Canva still remains one of the easiest services to create infographics and charts in.

The only limiting thing with Canva is that it offers a basic set of tools and transitions at users' disposal. It's apparent that the company places more focus on photo editing and design aspect than anything else.

The Prezi presentation format is unique in the way that it lets you view slides. Instead of addressing multiple elements at once, Prezi gives viewers a single canvas that allows them to zoom in on different presentation parts. This provides a much more immersive experience.

Similar to Google Slides, Prezi supports the real-time collaboration of up to 10 users. Users can also add comments to indicate changes or report missing information. Prezi works on any modern web browser, and there are Android and iOS apps available as well.

Related: Powerful Google Chrome PDF Extensions and Apps

The Prezi software also has an analytics feature that helps users optimize their presentation by showing them which slides were the most viewed as well as which ones were skipped.

Even though the basic version of Prezi is free to use, it doesn't allow users to control the privacy of their presentation, which could be a dealbreaker for many. Additionally, due to the way Prezi works, there is a steep learning curve associated with it.

4. WPS Office Free

WPS Office is the closest alternative to PowerPoint when it comes to functionality and user interface. Plus, unlike the other web-based services on this list, you don't always need an active internet connection to use it.

With its complete support for PowerPoint files, users can edit existing PowerPoint documents with ease in WPS Office. They can also embed videos and animate individual objects, just like in Microsoft PowerPoint. It also offers many templates, so users can pick their favorite.

However, users should keep in mind that while the software is free, it is supported by ads, which may be a bit intrusive at times. In addition to this, collaboration is less straightforward than with Google Slides.

WPS Office is available across all major platforms such as Windows, macOS, Linux. iOS, and Android. There is a web-based version available as well. Alternatively, you can check out this handy guide to smoothen your transition to WPS Office from Microsoft .

Xtensio is one of the best options for business users. It has many templates available regarding various organization sections, such as marketing, UX design, etc.

With Xtensio's easy-to-use interface, even newbies can create professional-looking reports and presentations. Additionally, they offer even greater flexibility in terms of design. You can edit each object in a template to suit your specific needs.

But it does have some shortcomings. For one thing, users cannot export their presentations in PowerPoint format. Additionally, the free version supports only one user at a time with a storage space of 1MB.

6. LibreOffice

LibreOffice is open-source presentation software that does everything PowerPoint can do. Although it lacks functionality such as OneDrive Integration, its PowerPoint-like functionality more than makes up for it.

LibreOffice has its share of useful features, such as the ability to import Keynote files. In addition, LibreOffice has a vast collection of free templates that users can use to create their presentations.

If that's not enough, you can download additional templates from LibreOffice's online repository. LibreOffice is available across Windows, macOS, and Linux.

7. Zoho Show

There are several reasons to use Zoho Show for your next presentation. It's a great presentation tool that's similar to Google Slides, but even better. Users can also import and edit all their PowerPoint files in the online tool.

Presentation Software for 2022: 10 Best PowerPoint Alternatives

Imagine the last PowerPoint presentation you created. You probably spent way too much time on the minute design details like adjusting borders and aligning text boxes. PowerPoint certainly can be a hassle, especially if you don’t have advanced knowledge of the software and its features. 

It’s no wonder why so many people are seeking PowerPoint-alternative presentation software options. Tools like Beautiful.ai, Visme and Prezi save time and plenty of time and frustration when designing presentations, plus many of the tools allow the most amateur of designers to craft masterful and engaging presentation designs.

Here, we’ve compiled basic information about 10 different alternative presentation programs to PowerPoint. Which is your favorite?

1. Beautiful.ai

We hate to brag, but our PowerPoint-alternative software is perfect for designing professional-level presentations in a fraction of the time it takes to create a mediocre PowerPoint slide deck. By choosing to advanced presentation software like Beautiful.ai , users are handing over the bulk of the design work to artificial intelligence.

2. Google Slides

Do you have a Google account? If so, then you already have access to the search giant’s own PowerPoint-alternative presentation software. Anyone with a Google account can access Google Slides from within the company’s suite of productivity applications . In terms of its user interface, Google Slides resembles PowerPoint in many ways, but presentations can be shared among Google users, making it a popular collaboration tool. Google Slides has its limits, however, since only a limited library of shapes and icons are available to add without seeking and importing the images from elsewhere.

Visme’s PowerPoint-alternative presentation software helps users design slide decks, infographics, interactive charts and other visual content. The easy-to-use cloud-based tool allows users to move elements around the workspace, and new content can be added by dragging and dropping it into place. Visme users can build presentations from scratch by starting with a blank canvas, or they can customize a variety of templates. The presentation software also features a collection of thousands of icons, images and data visualizations, and users even can choose to boost engagement by adding elements like video, audio and GIF files.

4. Zoho Show

With Zoho’s PowerPoint-alternative presentation software, users can create, edit, share and deliver presentations from anywhere while collaborating with their teams. Zoho Show is popular thanks to its minimalist and contextual user interface. The program recognizes the task the user is conducting, and automatically provides the most relevant options to reduce overall clutter on the screen. The presentation software also features more than 100 templates for a variety of topics and purposes, from startup pitch decks and business proposals to sales decks and project management presentations.

Prezi’s presentation software is a true alternative to PowerPoint . Rather than design standard slide decks, Prezi users create animated, non-sequential presentations that highlight topics and uncover subtopics with an engaging zoom feature. The PowerPoint-alternative software is an enticing alternative for creating visual presentations, but it’s probably better suited for experienced presentation designers thanks to its unique design. Still, Prezi is a perfect choice for presenters seeking a more creative way to capture an audience's attention.

6. FlowVella

Hoping to design a presentation on your smartphone or tablet? FlowVella is a popular presentation creation platform with a special focus on mobile device support. The PowerPoint-alternative presentation software allows users to create dynamic and interactive visual content from anywhere. Presentations created with FlowVella are especially engaging to audiences since they often combine words, images, video, links, galleries and PDFs to create an interactive story. The software is simple to use thanks to dozens of templates and a convenient drag-and-drop feature for adding content.

A free app for making attractive presentations, Haiku Deck is both simple and fun to use. The presentation design software uses artificial intelligence to transform ideas into eye-catching slide decks. This PowerPoint-alternative presentation tool is designed for users who want to craft presentations with simple messages using basic templates. And the drag-and-drop interface makes it a tool even amateur designers can master in no time at all.

Canva offers much more than an alternative to PowerPoint. Users can rely on the visual design platform to create social media graphics, posters, invitations, business cards and all sorts of other documents along with presentations. Canva features thousands of professional templates, images and other content elements, as well as features to help teams collaborate with ease. The software tool’s drag-and-drop interface makes it simple for non-designers to customize templates and even edit photos with little experience.

9. Genially

Traditional slide decks are designed to be led by a presenter. That worked great until so much of the global workplace went remote. Genially is a popular PowerPoint-alternative software choice because its interactive features and animated templates are perfect for building self-led presentations. Thanks to a variety of interactive buttons, designers can show their audiences additional context, skip to specific deck pages and even navigate to external locations with links. Genially features a variety of customizable templates on topics ranging from business proposals to social media presentations, making it a simple choice for amateur presentation designers.

No sooner did the PowerPoint-alternative presentation software launch in 2020, than it was already called a “PowerPoint killer” within the sector. It shouldn’t be any surprise, since Pitch was created as a tool for non-designers to build powerful and attractive pitch decks. The presentation software features a vast library of presentation templates and plenty of options for collaboration. Plus, Pitch’s customizable presentation styles allow users easily to stay on brand throughout their entire pitch decks. Plus, Pitch presentations can be integrated with Google Sheets, Google Analytics and other productivity programs.

While PowerPoint is the market leader when it comes to presentation software, some people may be unwilling to subscribe to a Microsoft 365 subscription, especially if they don't expect to need to use it very often.

However, there are plenty of great alternatives to PowerPoint available for free that you can use. While these won't have the same advanced features as PowerPoint, they still offer a very competent platform to design most any presentation that you need.

Our expert review:

Reasons to buy

Reasons to avoid.

Prezi turns the traditional approach to presentations on its head. Instead of creating slide after slide, this presentation software gives you a single giant canvas. You can add blocks of text or images, or even create miniature slides. During your presentation, you can seamlessly fly around the canvas and zoom in to look at individual chunks of content.

For how complex Prezi seems, it’s impressively simple to use the platform. The only major divergence from Microsoft PowerPoint is that you need to add animated paths from one part of the canvas to another. The tools for this are fairly straightforward, especially if you’ve ever used an animation or video editing software.

Of course, this type of presentation structure isn’t always ideal. Prezi makes it hard to visualize structured data like financials, which can make it difficult to use in business applications. Some viewers also might not appreciate the fly-around animation style that’s inherent to the presentation software.

Read our full Prezi review .

Canva is perfect for making speedy presentations right in your web browser. This software offers a handful of free layouts to help you get your slideshow started, and it’s easy to customize the templates to fit your needs. There isn’t a huge variety of content elements to add to your presentation, but Canva makes up for this with a searchable library of more than 1 million images you can use.

Your Canva presentations live online, which makes it extremely easy to collaborate. You can invite colleagues to edit your slideshow (although simultaneous editing is not supported) or seamlessly share your finished presentation. However, beware that Canva can’t import presentations from Microsoft Powerpoint or export finished work to a Powerpoint-editable format.

3. LibreOffice

LibreOffice is a free alternative to Microsoft Office, and it includes a Powerpoint equivalent called Impress with nearly all of the same functionality. The only big difference you’ll find between the two slideshow creation tools is the LibreOffice lacks some modern features like built-in collaboration and integration with Microsoft OneDrive.

However, Impress does have a few advantages of its own. The software can import files from Keynote, the default presentation software on Mac computers. Plus, there are hundreds of free templates that you can download for free. Even better, there’s no limit on what fonts you can use with Impress, so it’s easy to change the look of your presentation from what Powerpoint typically allows.

On the whole, LibreOffice Impress is about as close as it gets to simply replicating Microsoft Powerpoint for free.

Read our full LibreOffice review .

4. Google Slides

Google Slides is part of Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), and it does a nice job of matching a number of PowerPoint’s capabilities. This free presentation software supports embedding videos, creating diagrams, and adding animations to your slides. While the selection of templates is somewhat limited, you can easily import hundreds of additional templates for free or create your own.

Even better, Google Slides supports the collaboration tools users have come to expect from Google. Multiple people can work on a slideshow simultaneously, and there’s a built-in group chat so you can keep track of what everyone is doing. It’s also nice that you can play your presentation in presenter mode, which allows you to preview how it will look to your audience and rehearse timing.

The only downside to Google Slides is that bloated slideshows can experience some loading delays. Also beware that while you can move between Slides and Powerpoint, the conversion often messes with the layout of your slides.

5. WPS Office Free

WPS Office Free is a Microsoft Office look-alike that fully support PowerPoint files without any layout issues during import. The WPS Presentation tool has all of the same capabilities of PowerPoint, including tons of animations, slide transitions, content effects, and video embedding. The selection of included presentation templates is also very impressive for a free software.

One of the best things about this presentation software is that the user interface will feel incredibly familiar if you’re coming from Microsoft. All of the tools are displayed in a top ribbon, with your slides shown on the left side of the screen for easy navigation. It’s simple to display your presentation right from WPS Presentation, which means there’s no unexpected troubleshooting when it’s time to show off your work.

There’s not much to dislike about WPS Presentation. However, keep in mind that the software is supported by ads. Some users find the ads annoying, but they’re not overly in the way.

Which alternative to PowerPoint is best for you?

When deciding which alternative to PowerPoint to download and use, first consider what your actual needs are, as sometimes free platforms may only provide basic options, so if you need to use advanced tools you may find a paid platform is much more worthwhile. Additionally, free and budget software options can sometimes prove limited when it comes to the variety of tools available, while higher-end software can really cater for every need, so do ensure you have a good idea of which features you think you may require.

How we tested the best free presentation software

To test for the best free presentation software we first set up an account with the relevant software platform, whether as a download or as an online service. We then tested the service to see how the software could be used for different purposes and in different situations. The aim was to push each software platform to see how useful its basic tools were and also how easy it was to get to grips with any more advanced tools.

7 Best Free PowerPoint Alternatives To Level Up Your Presentations

Apache OpenOffice

Google slides, libreoffice, propresenter, seven free powerpoint alternatives to help design engaging presentations..

Think of presentations and you think of Microsoft PowerPoint. An industry standard, PowerPoint is a long-standing tool that offers an easy-to-navigate interface to create impactful presentations for business meetings, sales pitches, and more.

However, despite being widely used, Microsoft PowerPoint might not be the most accessible tool, especially if you’re looking for free software. PowerPoint is part of the Microsoft Office suite and can only be accessed by purchasing the suite. Small businesses, especially sales and marketing companies, need software that helps design impactful presentation slides without draining their finances. That’s where free PowerPoint alternatives come to the rescue.

We asked users about the PowerPoint alternative they considered when looking for presentation software for their business. Here are the seven best PowerPoint alternatives (listed alphabetically) they identified.

Despite its popularity, Microsoft PowerPoint may not always be the right choice if presentations are crucial for your business. You can, instead, choose the various software options discussed in this article.

If you want a completely free and customizable tool , select either Apache OpenOffice or OpenLibre. You can access the source code of these tools to customize their functionality per your preference.

If you create a lot of posters, designs, and infographics , Visme and Canva are good options, as both help create such assets and include them in presentations.

If real-time collaboration is crucial for your business , then Google Slides is worth a shot, as it provides collaboration for small and large teams alike.

If you want to do video presentations and feature them during remote meetings , Prezi, with its built-in video presentation functionality, is an ideal solution.

If your work involves live audiences and large gatherings , ProPresenter might be an ideal tool, as it helps stream presentations to larger groups and is more suited for outdoor events.

Best Microsoft PowerPoint Alternatives (Updated July 2020)

  • LibreOffice Impress
  • Google Slides

Which Presentation App is Better for You?

  • A beautifully-designed template that can invite attention and engage the audience
  • Well-organized layout
  • And more significantly, seamless presentation of ideas 

As to which presentation apps like Microsoft PowerPoint can suit your needs better. Be sure of what you need:  full customization, a wide range of pro tools, seamless collaboration, or a simplified experience . Keeping in mind various demands, I have chosen the best alternatives to PowerPoint.

List of Top Alternatives to Microsoft PowerPoint

Prezi Presentation - Top Microsoft PowerPoint Alternative

On the collaboration front, it’s also equally effective, allowing you to work seamlessly with your team. And with the desktop app, you can  work on your presentation even offline . As far as analytics is concerned, Prezi is highly efficient, enabling you to track viewers and have better insight so that you will be able to target the follow-up with clarity. Price-wise, Prezi is slightly cheaper than PowerPoint as it starts at just $5/month (for personal use).

  • Analytics for your online presentations

Another feature that makes Impress a worthy rival of PowerPoint is an elegant Slide Show mode that enables you to control how your slides are shown and sequenced.

  • Free and open-source
  • Multiple different view modes

Though it lacks a plethora of templates that PowerPoint boasts, it has enough pre-defined templates to meet most demand. In terms of customization tools, I think it excels in most aspects and easily leaves its famous counterpart behind.

Platform Availability:   Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS

iCloud Keynote

Pricing:  Free, $99/year

12. WPS Office Free

WPS Office Free

WPS Office has got more than decent formatting tools that include font styles, colors, shapes and more. Thus, giving a suitable appearance to your presentation won’t be a big ask. If you want to go for a bit more customization,  over 230 fonts and text effects  would come into play really.

  • Fully compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Supports both PPT and PPTX files
  • Over 230 fonts and text effects
  • Lacks the versatility of PowerPoint
  • The interface should be better 

Pricing:  Free

7 powerpoint-alternativen: so werden deine präsentationen noch besser.

Autorenprofil: Andreas Fricke

Featured image: pressmaster - stock.adobe.com

Es gibt einige Präsentations-Tools, die gute Powerpoint-Alternativen darstellen.

Inhaltsverzeichnis, was spricht für eine powerpoint-alternative, google slides, onlyoffice docs, fazit: sehr gute auswahl an powerpoint-alternativen, häufige fragen (faq) zu powerpoint-alternativen, gesamtes inhaltsverzeichnis anzeigen.

Es ist beinahe bei allen Menschen so: PowerPoint bedeutet Hass-Liebe. Auf der einen Seite ist diese Office-Anwendung unglaublich beliebt und das mit gutem Grund. Aber auf der anderen Seite können es viele einfach nicht mehr sehen und verzweifeln an Kleinigkeiten, wie beispielsweise der Feinjustierung ihres Layouts . Vor allem wenn du in den geschäftlichen Bereich schaust, hatte PowerPoint über einen sehr langen Zeitraum eine unangefochtene, marktbeherrschende Stellung . Zwar mag es auch heute noch das meistgenutzte Präsentations-Tool sein, aber eins sei gesagt: Es gibt gute PowerPoint-Alternativen und die sind gewaltig.

beste powerpoint alternative

Um dir einen besseren Überblick über PowerPoint-Alternativen zugeben, beantworten wir in diesem Artikel unter anderem die folgenden Fragen:

  • Ist PowerPoint kostenlos?
  • Welches Programm für Präsentation nutzen?
  • Was ist besser als PowerPoint?

PowerPoint-Alternativen: Echte Konkurrenz?

Gibt es denn wirklich gute PowerPoint-Alternativen? In den letzten Jahren sind – nicht zuletzt durch die Digitalisierung – immer mehr Unternehmen gewachsen, die sich mit dem Entwickeln von Softwares für Präsentationen beschäftigen. Manche sind zum heutigen Zeitpunkt Weltkonzerne und verkaufen auch international Software-Lösungen, die PowerPoint mächtig Konkurrenz machen. Denn es wäre falsch zu sagen, dass das Monopol der Office-Anwendung unstürzbar ist. In manchen Belangen sind die neuen Tools PowerPoint sogar um Jahre voraus. Doch im Endeffekt wird es wohl immer eine individuelle Entscheidung bleiben, mit welchem Tool man besser arbeiten kann.

Jeder, der eine normale Schullaufbahn hinter sich gebracht hat und auch danach noch etwas mit Präsentationen am Hut hat, der kennt sie einfach auswendig: Die PowerPoint Design-Templates. Das bedeutet nicht, dass sie schlecht sind, aber sie sind eben älter und scheinen überholt. Der „Wow“-Effekt – wie ihn neuartige Animationen bieten können – bleibt jedoch aus. Es besteht die Gefahr schon vor dem ersten Wort die Aufmerksamkeit zu verlieren, weil das Publikum durch den visuellen Reiz suggeriert bekommt, dass nun etwas kommt, was man schon gefühlt 1000 Mal gesehen hat.

Oftmals tüftelt ein ganzes Team an der Webseite und versucht die Webdesign-Trends umzusetzen.

Sales Pitch: Deine Idee zu visualisieren ist beim Präsentieren sehr wichtig.

Sales Pitch: So verkaufst du dein Produkt perfekt

Dein Produkt steht, nun muss es noch korrekt vermarktet werden. Doch was muss man beim Sales Pitch beachten und wie setzt man den Pitch bestmöglich um?

Marion Bachmann

Außerdem können einige Alternativen eine überarbeite Benutzeroberfläche anbieten, sodass Funktionen und Layout sich leichter anpassen lassen. Jeder, der wirklich schon einmal mit PowerPoint gearbeitet hat, weiß, wie nervtötend es sein kann, wenn man versucht ein Objekt zu platzieren und es einfach nicht dorthin will, wo man es haben möchte oder es einfach alles andere verschiebt.

Die neuen Möglichkeiten der Darstellung sorgen auch dafür, dass du Sachzusammenhänge noch besser skizzieren kannst, was wiederum dafür sorgt, dass dir die Leute, denen du deine Idee oder dein Produkt verkaufen willst, noch besser folgen können und die Benefits eindeutiger werden! Das ist nicht nur für eine Präsentation gut, sondern auch für dein Business.

Darum lohnt es sich mit PowerPoint-Alternativen zu arbeiten:

  • Erhöht die Aufmerksamkeit der Zuschauer
  • Setzt neue Reize
  • Ermöglicht komplexere Zusammenhänge einfacher darzustellen
  • Teilweise besser zu bedienen

Die 7 besten PowerPoint-Alternativen im Schnelldurchlauf

Nun ist Design oft eine Frage des Geschmacks und über Geschmack kann man bekanntlich streiten. Deshalb wollen wir dir sieben Alternativen vorstellen.

Prezi ist ein Präsentations-Tool, dass mittlerweile auch in Deutschland große Bekanntheit erlangt hat und auch immer mehr als eine PowerPoint-Alternative im Business-Bereich eingesetzt wird. Es bietet die Möglichkeiten mit einfachen Formen, Mitteln und Slides eine animierte, strukturierte und dynamische Präsentation zu gestalten. Doch die üblichen Folien gibt es hier nicht. Der Vorteil bei Prezi liegt darin, dass es hier eine sehr große Datenbank an Templates gibt, aus denen man wählen kann. Diese Vorlagen eignen sich oft sehr gut, um innerhalb der Präsentation eine Geschichte zu erzählen. Das ist extrem ansprechend und kann dir gut dabei helfen deine Intention zu visualisieren. Einziger Nachteil ist vielleicht der Preis. Du kannst keine Lizenz im eigentlichen Sinne erwerben, sondern musst dich monatlich beteiligen. Zudem sind die Abläufe ganz anders als bei PowerPoint, wodurch man sich hier etwas einarbeiten muss. In der kostenlosen Basic-Version erhältst du nur die Basis-Funktionen und deine Präsentation kann online jeder einsehen.

  • dynamische Erzählung auf digitaler Leinwand
  • eignet sich für kreative und unkonventionelle Präsentationen
  • große Auswahl an Effekten
  • Einarbeitungszeit notwendig
  • wenige Vorlagen
  • kostenpflichtig (ab 10 Euro / Monat)

Sehr einfach in der Bedienung ist dagegen Google Slides. Das Online-Offline- Tool ist eine gute PowerPoint-Alternative, da es Usern mit einem Google-Konto kostenlos zur Verfügung steht. Dabei arbeitet es sich ähnlich wie mit dem Konkurrenten: verschiedene Design-Vorlagen, Folien zur Gestaltung der Texte und weitere Effekte. Ein attraktiver Zusatz ist die Team-Arbeit. Andere Nutzer mit einem Google-Konto können zeitgleich an der Präsentation arbeiten oder eben nur lesen, je nach individueller Rechtevergabe. Aber auch PowerPoint-Dokumente können hier hochgeladen und bearbeitet werden.

  • einfache Bedienung
  • Team-Arbeit möglich
  • Design-Vorlagen und Folien-Layout
  • Mit Google-Konto kostenlos

Deckset ist für die, die mal was vergessen haben. Ist die Deadline sehr knapp oder das Meeting sehr spontan, dann könnte diese Software etwas für dich sein. Sie basiert auf Markdown, wodurch du in diesem Programm wie in einem Texteditor arbeitest. Diese Textdatei kann dann auch in Deckset direkt geöffnet und dementsprechend schnell und einfach genutzt werden. Nach und nach fügt das Tool automatisch die Komponenten zusammen, die zu einer guten Präsentation gehören, sodass am Ende ein stimmiges Gesamtbild entsteht. Doch die Anpassungsmöglichkeiten sind etwas begrenzt, wodurch sich dieses Tool nicht gänzlich als PowerPoint-Alternative ansehen lässt. Doch vor allem für Einsteiger ist Deckset interessant, denn hier muss sich niemand stundenlang mit Layouts und Designelementen herum schlagen. Auch dieses Tool ist kostenpflichtig und kann mit einmaligen 35 Euro erworben werden.

  • schnelles, alternatives Tool
  • wenig Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten
  • geeignet für Anfänger
  • einfache Nutzung
  • kostenpflichtig

Das Tool Keynote ist im wesentlichen eine PowerPoint-Alternative für Apple-Nutzer. Es ist im typischen Apple-Design gestaltet und steht hier auch klar im Vordergrund. Neben diesen hochwertigen Design-Elementen bietet Keynote ebenfalls eine Team-Funktion an. Genutzt werden kann das Tool vom iPhone, iPad oder MacBook aus. Auch hier wird mit der typischen Folien-Gestaltung gearbeitet, sodass die Einarbeitungszeit – und besonders für Apple-Liebhaber – relativ gering ist. Zusätzlich bietet Keynote eine Live-Funktion an, mit der man die Präsentation streamen kann. Die Software ist jedoch nur für Apple User kostenlos.

  • große Auswahl an Designs
  • Live-Funktion
  • Nur für Apple User kostenlos

Aus der Reihe der bisherigen PowerPoint-Alternativen bricht PowToon heraus. Denn dieses Tool legt den Fokus auf animierte Charaktere und Storytelling. Hiermit lassen sich Videoclips erstellen, die jede Präsentation aufpeppen können. Da hier die Animationen im Vordergrund stehen, kann dieses Tool auch als Ergänzung zu PowerPoint gesehen werden. Das Programm ist web-basiert und wird kostenlos angeboten. Dafür sind jedoch viele Funktionen eingeschränkt oder Animationen mit Wasserzeichen versehen. Daher sollte man für die volle Funktionalität des Programms die kostenpflichtige Version nutzen. Die Videos dürfen maximal drei Minuten lang sein und können dann einfach im Cloudspeicher abgelegt werden. Ein Vorteil ist, dass die Animationen nicht nur in der Präsentation über PowToon funktionieren, sondern diese sich ebenfalls leicht auf Websites integrieren lassen. Wenn du eine uneingeschränkte Version erwerben willst, liegt der Startpreis bei 17 US-Dollar im Monat.

  • kreative Gestaltung von Animationen und Videos
  • normale Präsentation mit Folien möglich
  • kurze Einarbeitungszeit
  • eingeschränkte Version kostenlos

Die PowerPoint-Alternative Haiku Deck arbeitet mit künstlicher Intelligenz und kreiert für dich passende Fotos und Designs, die zu deinem Thema passen. Somit kannst du auch hier wie gewohnt das Layout der Folien festlegen und deine Informationen aufbereiten. Der Fokus von Haiku Deck liegt aber vor allem auf der Ästhetik. Denn mit Filtern wie bei Instagram veredelt das Tool deine Präsentation und lässt sie für die Zuschauer hübscher wirken. Teilen kannst du deine Präsentation dann auf Websites, Social Media oder per Mail. Nachteile liegen in der Funktion der Folien, da hier der Übergang zwischen diesen fehlt. Auch das genau Platzieren von Textfeldern ist hier schwieriger als bei den anderen PowerPoint-Alternativen. Genutzt werden kann das Tool kostenlos, jedoch in eingeschränkter Version. Wenn du alle Funktionen nutzen möchtest, kannst du drei verschiedene Versionen kostenpflichtig erwerben. Der Startpreis liegt hier bei ca. 10 US-Dollar monatlich.

  • Einsatz von künstlicher Intelligenz
  • Fokus liegt auf Optik und Ästhetik
  • praktische Features fehlen

Das Präsentationsprogramm von ONLYOFFICE bietet maximale Kompatibilität mit PPTX-Dateien und umfasst alle nötigen Funktionen, die du für das Erstellen und Formatieren von Folien brauchst. Verschiedene Farbstile und Layouts, Diagramme, Autoshapes, Text Art, interaktive Effekte und Übergänge stehen zur Verfügung. In der Referentenansicht kannst du dir Notizen machen und durch die Präsentation bequem navigieren. Darüber hinaus ist es möglich, mit PPT- und ODP-Formaten zu arbeiten und Präsentationen in PDF zu speichern. Integrierte Plugins wie z.B. Photo Editor und Translator erweitern die Funktionalität.

Wenn du nur lokale Dateien bearbeiten möchtest, gibt es die kostenlosen ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors. Nutzer, die Funktionen für die Zusammenarbeit benötigen, können sich für die Online-Version entscheiden und Präsentationen mit anderen Benutzern in Echtzeit bearbeiten, Kommentare hinterlassen und im Chat alles besprechen, ohne den Editor zu verlassen. Zu ergänzen ist außerdem, dass der User bei dieser PowerPoint-Alternative nicht das Präsentationsprogramm nutzen kann, sondern auch Tools für die Textverarbeitung und Tabellenkalkulation erhält.

  • effiziente Online-Zusammenarbeit
  • gute Kompatibilität mit dem PPTX-Format
  • für jedes Gerät und Betriebssystem verfügbar
  • kostenlose Desktop-Version

Es gibt viele PowerPoint-Alternativen, die sich alle auf unterschiedliche Funktionen fokussieren. Denn je nach Arbeitsmethode, Branche und deinen Vorlieben, eignen sich unterschiedliche Tools. Generell soll dir hiermit vor Augen geführt werden, dass es unzählige Alternativen gibt, die dir teilweise sogar mehr Möglichkeiten bieten, als PowerPoint selbst. Daher lohnt es sich von Zeit zu Zeit immer wieder neue Programme auszutesten oder bestimmte Tools ergänzend zu nutzen.

Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Kostenlos Herunterladen: Ein Umfassender Leitfaden

PowerPoint 2016 ist eine Präsentationssoftware, mit der du spannende und wirkungsvolle Folien für eine Präsentation erstellen kannst. Sie wird verwendet, um eine kompetente Präsentation für eine nahtlose Lieferung in vielen Formaten zu entwickeln. Wenn du noch nach Wegen suchst, um PowerPoint 2016 kostenlos herunterzuladen, mit oder ohne Produkt-Schlüssel, oder nach kostenlosen Alternativen suchst, dann lies diesen Artikel bis zum Ende. Wir werden dir zeigen, wie du PowerPoint 2016 kostenlos herunterladen oder neu installieren kannst. Wenn du nicht für Präsentationssoftware bezahlen möchtest, können wir einige kostenlose Alternativen empfehlen.

Kann ich PowerPoint 2016 im Jahr 2023 noch benutzen ?

Obwohl Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 eine ältere Version der Software ist, funktioniert sie immer noch und kann im Jahr 2023 zum Erstellen und Präsentieren von Präsentationen verwendet werden. Die Hauptunterstützung endete am 13. Oktober 2020, und die erweiterte Unterstützung für die meisten Ausgaben von Office 2016 wird am 14. Oktober 2025 enden. Daher wird empfohlen, auf die neuesten Versionen von PowerPoint zu aktualisieren, um die neuesten Funktionen und Sicherheitsverbesserungen nutzen zu können.

PowerPoint 2016 mit Produkt-Schlüssel neu installieren

Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 ist Teil des Office 2016-Pakets. Damals war die eigenständige PowerPoint-Version nicht verfügbar. Wenn du es vorher gekauft hast und noch den Produkt-Schlüssel hast, kannst du das gesamte Microsoft Office 2016 neu installieren, um Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 zu nutzen.

Schritte zur Neuinstallation:

Gib " www.office.com " in die Adressleiste deines Browsers ein, um auf die Office-Website oder die Seite Mein Konto zuzugreifen.

  2. Klicke auf die Option Anmelden.

  3. Melde dich jetzt mit dem Konto an, das mit deinem Office verknüpft ist.

  4. Klicke auf Office installieren.


  5. Um den Installationsvorgang zu starten, klicke auf die Option ‘installieren’ auf der Seite Download und Installieren von Office.

  6. Um die Office-Setup-Installation zu starten, klicke zweimal darauf. Wähle die Option ‘JA’.

  7. Folge den Anweisungen auf dem Bildschirm für den Kontotyp, den du beim Anmelden verwenden möchtest.

  8. Nach Abschluss wurde Office bereits auf deinem PC neu installiert.


Hier sind die Mindestanforderungen für die Installation von PowerPoint 2016 auf deinem PC.

Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 beim Drittanbieter herunterladen

Da Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 nicht mehr erhältlich ist, kannst du es nicht von der offiziellen Microsoft-Website bekommen. Du könntest es jedoch auf anderen Websites finden, die es verpackt und hochgeladen haben. Aber Vorsicht, dieser Weg ist nicht sicher, denn das Installationspaket könnte Viren haben oder mit anderer Software gebunden sein. Sei vorsichtig, wenn du Software von solchen Quellen herunterlädst, da diese manchmal nicht zuverlässig oder sicher sind.
