Features available
with Keynote.

Keynote lets you create presentations as groundbreaking as your ideas.
So go ahead. Wow people like never before.

New

Showcase videos like never before.

Play videos and movies continuously across slides, without the need to start and stop, find where you left off or edit them into clips. Change the position, size or rotation, and the video will animate seamlessly. The audio can even fade between slides or adjust when there is dialogue or voiceover.

New

Align objects to motion paths.

With just a tap, you can point an object in the right direction, and it will stay pointed in the right direction as it travels along a path.

New

A whole new reading experience.

Now you can scroll through your presentation, zoom in and out, and interact with it — without accidentally changing anything.

New

Present over video conference. Like a pro.

Keynote for Mac now delivers a better experience over video conference. Play a slideshow within a window, instead of full screen, so you can access other apps and files while you present.

New

Captions and titles stick with objects.

Easily add text to images, videos and shapes. Your words will automatically stay with objects — if and when you move them.

Other Key Features

Add accessibility descriptions to images, image galleries, movies and audio to help people using assistive technology.

Use paragraph styles to achieve a consistent look throughout your presentation, and to quickly make global changes to your text.
