Recording Tab in PowerPoint 365

In PowerPoint 365, we can add now a Recording tab to the ribbon which is available. We can then create a Presentation made up of recorded slides, screen recordings and inserted Videos and finally share the Recorded Content to be viewed. We can even make our Presentations more interactive by embedding quizzes to assist. We can even change the ink color right from the pane in the recording pane. In order to learn more of the Recording tab in PowerPoint 365, with all the available commands just keep on reading.
