The way it works is that it turns your Windows Phone into a remote that can interact with Microsoft Office installed on your Windows PC. It will also show you your speaker notes and the presentation timer to help you present more effectively.
Using this productive tool, you can start PowerPoint presentations, advance the slides, see your speaker notes, and control an on-screen laser pointer with a touch of your finger. You can also navigate between Excel worksheets and graphs, and control data slicers from the palm of your hand. Moreover, if you need to scroll through a Word document or quickly jump to specific sections or comments, this tool will help you here too.

Office Remote lets you do the following things:

In PowerPoint, it lets you:

  • Jump to the next, previous, and last slide
  • View slide thumbnails and jump to a slide
  • View speaker notes on phone
