Keep your viewers focus on your story with streamlined player controls and video narration.
With video narration, you can now prerecord your perfect pitch—just hit play! Find this new feature alongside audio recording in the left toolbar of the editor. Add a video bubble, record your presentation and position it on your slide. Send a link to your presentation for your audience to view in their own time, or shake up your presentation with a mix of prerecorded and live narration. A message from the founder? Team updates? Let your audience hear from different voices and subject experts.
When it's time to share your story, don't let player controls get in the way. We've reimagined our player so the options you need are available when you need them, and out of your way when you don't.
Give your team the tools it needs to create beautiful decks with consistent branding and up-to-date data.
Create a library of custom slide templates for your team to start from—with structure, design elements, and key content already in place. Built on Smart Slides, your team can easily customize these for their specific use case. Create slides with as little or as much starter content as you like, so your team can simply add a client logo or emphasize a key point for their intended audience and—done!
Team Librarians and Owners can create new Slide Templates from Team Resource management, or directly from a presentation. From a presentation, share a slide from the three dot, more menu.
Keep your data fresh with data linking. Import data to your chart or table directly from your preferred app and choose to link the slide to the data source. When your source file is updated those changes will automatically be reflected on your linked slide. Import from—or link to—Google Sheets, Dropbox or Box. Additional integrations coming soon!
Access your favorite digital asset management app without leaving Beautiful.ai. In addition to Dropbox, Teams can now import from Google Drive, Box and Bynder.
Create the slide you need in seconds with our generative ai. DesignerBot has built custom presentation structures for you, reworked your copy and even created unique images to use. Now you can also ask DesignerBot to generate custom slides, with visuals and content based on your prompting. Because they are built on Smart Slides, they'll automatically adapt to your theme and additional edits—integrating seamlessly with the rest of your deck.
As your Team libraries grow, it can be increasingly difficult to find the resources you need. That's why we've added the ability to create custom tags for your Team Assets and Presentation Templates. Enable your team to find and add the right headshot or Sales Deck template in a click.

Themes define the look of your presentation—ensuring your presentation is visually consistent and on brand. Our simplified Theme Editor means you can create your theme and get started on your content faster. Just add your colors, fonts and logo and get started building your presentation. You will always have access to the full range of options available in the advanced editor to tweak your font sizes, colors and footer. Save your theme to use again later.
To help you get started even faster, PowerPoint users can now import theme essentials from a PPT file. Select your file and we'll create a theme based on the fonts and colors used in your PowerPoint theme. Import your fonts or replace them with our built-in fonts.
We've improved our version history experience to make it easier to find the version you are looking for. Just hover to preview the version and click to apply, or choose to copy that version as a new slide. Collapsed groups makes it easier to sort through a longer history and find the right version quickly.
Make presenting a little easier. Now standard formatting options like bold, italic and bullets are available in slide notes.
