Introducing the new Microsoft Office App

Microsoft recently introduced a new mobile app called Office, which combines the individual apps of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint into one platform. Millions of people use Microsoft Office to get their work done, either in the office, at home or at school. It is, therefore, no surprise that this new app has already been met with immense positive feedback.

Combining Word, Excel and PowerPoint is already a great benefit as you don’t have to install multiple apps on your phone, giving you more storage space on your device as well as making it more convenient to switch between them.

The Office app makes it easier for users to perform tasks and get more done in exclusive mobile capabilities with built-in actions, such as creating PDFs, signing them off, using Sticky Notes and transferring files between devices.  

Additional features include the integration of Microsoft’s Lens technology, which enables the use of your mobile camera. This includes the ability to convert images into editable Word and Excel documents, scanning QR codes and taking photos of whiteboards that automatically get enhanced for easier reading.

While the above is already pretty captivating, Microsoft promises to deliver even more features in the future. These include:

  • Word Dictation is the ability to turn your voice into text, use voice commands and simple toolbars to help you with the right formatting and punctuation on Word.
  • Outline to PowerPoint will help you turn your presentation content presentable slides with the correct styling and formatting.
  • Excel Cards View will let you view and edit data in an Excel table row in a simple and easy to read card format, helping you against the bothersome extended columns that users sometimes face.

While the app is completely free to use, we recommend singing in with a Microsoft Account in order to have access to the cloud. Additionally, an Office 365 or Microsoft 365 subscription will give you access to added premium features.
