There are a number of new transitions here that you can try out. Some of them stand out quite a bit so you want to make sure not to get carried away. Only use transitions that help emphasize your message. To apply the transition, I’ll click “Fade” in the “Subtle” section. You can see a little star next to the thumbnail slide that shows that this slide has an animation or transition applied to it.
