Here's a sneak peek at what's new:

1. Discover Themes in the Design tab

We've moved themes to the Design tab, allowing you to effortlessly explore and apply different visual styles to your slides. Whether you want a professional look or a fun and vibrant theme, the Design tab has you covered.

In edit view, go to the Design tab and select Themes. Under the section "My themes" you will see the default themes or if you have a Pro or Enterprise subscription you can see any themes you have created. Just click on one of the themes to change your slides.

2. Streamlined presentation settings

No more searching for presentation settings! We have relocated the settings to the top left corner, easily accessible through a convenient gear icon ⚙️. With this simplified placement, you can quickly find all your usual settings such as changing the language, profanity filter and more to customize your presentation and make adjustments without any hassle.

3. Choose between Survey or Presentation mode

We understand that flexibility is essential while sharing your work. That's why we've changed the name of 'audience pace' and 'presenter pace' to 'survey' or 'presentation' so you can quickly choose what type of Menti you want to do. Depending on your needs, you can seamlessly switch between these two options and present your content just the way you want.

4. Enhanced accessibility checker

Ensuring accessibility is a priority for us. With our new accessibility checker, you can now review your presentation for potential accessibility issues. This valuable feature helps you create inclusive experiences and ensure that everyone can engage with your content effectively.

5. Experimenting with comment and question placement

We're always exploring ways to improve the user experience, and this time we are experimenting with comment and question placement. We believe this update will further optimize the flow of interactions during your presentations and surveys, making them even more engaging and informative. You can find them in either the Interactivity tab in the right sidebar or at the top of your screen as individual buttons.
