Install Office Mix

Learn how to install Office Mix.


Product/Version: Office Mix
OS: Windows and Mac

Before we look at installing Office Mix, it is a good idea to understand the system requirements needed for this add-in. Thereafter, you can install and run Office Mix, as explained later on this page.

Here’s what you need:

  • PowerPoint 2016 (or PowerPoint 2013) for Windows. At the time of writing, no compatible version of Office Mix was available for PowerPoint versions on the Mac.
  • Windows 7, 8, 10, or newer. That is obvious because PowerPoint 2013 or 2016 will not install on previous versions of Windows.
  • A suitable microphone. Our PowerPoint Microphones page will help.
  • A webcam if you want to record your headshot videos.

Thereafter follow these steps:

  1. Head to the Office Mix site, as shown in Figure 1 below.

  2. Click the large Get Office Mix button as shown in Figure 1 above. If you are not signed into with your Microsoft Account, you will be prompted now to do so. Thereafter, the setup file will be downloaded.
  3. Preferably close all applications and then activate the downloaded file to go ahead with the install process.
  4. Once installed, the Mix tab will appear on the Ribbon within PowerPoint, as shown in Figure 2, below.

  6. You can click on the options available in the Getting Started pane to view video tutorials that will explain key Mix concepts.

In subsequent tutorials, we will explore the individual commands within the Mix tab of the Ribbon.
