Microsoft is expanding the amount of free content available to subscribers of its Office 365 cloud productivity suite. According to the company says its extensive library of images, found in the Insert ribbon tab library will also now include videos.
Stock images on Office 365 help users to spruce up their documents, mostly PowerPoint presentations. For Microsoft 365 customers, this library includes a large set of royalty-free photos.
Microsoft has also included icons, stickers, and other image types in the library. Now, the company is extending to videos and ways for users to create moods in their presentations. This move follows last month’s addition of sketches and illustrations to the library.
Office 365 subscribers can now easily add high quality, curated images, stickers, and icons to their personal or professional files. Jazz up your content in Excel, Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint by picking from thousands of royalty-free images and icons that best suit your mood and the information you want to share.
Office 365 users can access Stock Video for the in-app library on PowerPoint by following Insert > Videos > Stock Videos.
Available on Windows
Microsoft says Stock Videos are available for PowerPoint on Windows Version 2012, but only for Win32applications. The company says Mac and Web support will follow in the coming weeks and months
Because this is an Office 365 features users must be subscribed to Microsoft 365 to access the full library of Stock Videos and photos. That means any users on Office on-premises versions like Office 2019 and 2016 will not get the ability.
