Microsoft today announced the upcoming new features and
improvements to its Office apps for Android users. The company
is currently rolling out new improvements and features for the
preview version of Office for Insiders.
The latest update pushes the version to 16.0.10325.20010 on
Android devices. Microsoft Word is getting new features in the
latest update with Microsoft letting the office users see the
word count while working with larger documents.
The users will always be able to know the number of words by
constantly viewing them while reading. Zooming improvements are
also being pushed out to Microsoft Word which now fit documents
to the screen without wasting any space. This option is
especially useful for devices with smaller screen display.
The Outlook users on Android will now be able to delete
contacts and are also getting a do not disturb option which
lets them turn off email notifications when in a meeting or at
Capturing and Sharing images is now possible in PowerPoint with
the latest Office update. Users can capture and share images
directly from their smartphones while using the PowerPoint
application in the absence of PC.
Microsoft has also added a review mode for PowerPoint which
enables users to view the slides both in portrait and landscape
modes. The users will also be able to read and edit the slides
along with having access to comments and notes while working
with a presentation.
As reported, all the new features are part of the Office July
2018 update which is currently being rolled out for Office
Insiders on Android and we expect Microsoft to push the
features to all Android users next month.
If you are an Office Insider on an Android device, then the
Office update is currently available for download. Do let us
know your thoughts in the comments below after working with the
new features over the weekend.
