The New Office App
A few months ago, Microsoft introduced a new app called Office. A whole new experience combining Word, Excel and PowerPoint into a single app. With new capabilities that allow you to create content and achieve more, wherever you are. Microsoft released the Office app to the general public in late February.
Millions of people use Microsoft Office everyday at home, work and school. However almost all of this work is done on home computers and very little is done on their phones. Microsoft recognised this and as a result the new Office app was created, changing perceptions of how you could work on a mobile phone.
Key benefits of the Office App include:
- Combining Word, Excel and PowerPoint meaning fewer apps to download and no switching between them. It requires far less storage than individual apps while keeping all of the same capabilities of the existing apps.
- Integrating Lens technology to convert images into editable Word and Excel documents, scanning PDFs, and capturing whiteboards.
- Adding new functionality specific for mobile phone use such as quick notes, signing PDFs, scanning QR codes and transferring files between devices.
Microsoft isn’t stopping there either, over the next 3 months they will be rolling out new features.
