Microsoft is introducing a new conversion tool for Office users that automatically transforms a Word document into a PowerPoint presentation with the help of artificial intelligence.

It’s called the Transform command, and it uses AI to look at all the different sections of a Word document in order to convert it into a presentation. The conversion includes imagery, icons, videos, themes, and fonts, so you should get a professional-looking set of PowerPoint slides with nothing missing.

The Transform tool is more intelligent than that, though. If you have a Word document consisting mainly of text, Transform will add assets to it by relying on Microsoft’s AI to select what works best. There’s also a number of available PowerPoint themes to choose between.

To test it out, users need to be signed up as an Office Insider and using Word for the web. Open any Word document and click File > Transform > Transform to PowerPoint presentation. Choose from one of the design themes that pop-up, then click “Open presentation.” The newly-created presentation will load in PowerPoint for the web and be saved in the OneDrive root folder. It can then be treated like any other PowerPoint file and tweaked or added to if necessary.
