In the spring of 2017, Prezi announced their newest platform called Prezi Next. This software is still browser based, but runs on HTML5, allowing for different functionality than the previous version of Prezi, which is now being referred to as Prezi Classic.
Because it runs on HTML5, Prezi Next has stricter browser requirements than Prezi Classic.
If you had a Prezi account before Prezi Next was released, Prezi Next will be added when you log in.
If you just made a Prezi account, (After April 2017) you're in luck- you will get access to Prezi Next automatically!
If you made a Prezi account after April 2017, but would still like to have access to Prezi Classic templates, the PreziBase website offers a quick activation link to add Prezi Classic to your account.
Once you have both Prezi Next and Prezi Classic, you can switch between the two using the drop-down menu in the upper left of your Prezi workspace, as seen below.
|Prezi Classic||Prezi Next|
|Allows a free download of the desktop or mobile apps||Requires a paid account to get the desktop app|
|Allows you to make presentations from scratch, starting with a blank template||Requires you to select a template, but there are more graphically interesting templates to choose from|
|Allows you to download presentations as a static PDF file||Better, more intuitive interface for editing presentations|
|Templates are less structured, too much 'zooming' can be overwhelming||More premium features (if you pay)|
