Microsoft’s New Office App: Features all-in-one (Word, Excel and powerpoint)


Monday morning was remained busy day for Microsoft, and for anyone that uses Office on the go, its new app might be the major gamechanger.

The company has strived to combine separate apps for Word, Excel and Powerpoint (aka the Office Triforce) into one ‘company’s newly unveiled Office app‘. The effort is an attempt to put everything you might need in one place, instead of grabbing apps individually for office work.

The app also includes a new Actions pane that should be especially effective for document editing on-the-go. Microsoft says you’ll be able to create and sign PDFs with ease from your tinier smartphone screens, and sharing files has also been simplified and streamlined.

The Office app also makes better use of your phone’s talents, with the ability to take a photo of a document and turn it into an editable Word file on the fly, or even do the same with printed-out tables in Excel.

Details ahead of today’s launch was otherwise a little scarce — but nevermind, you can test them out for yourself starting this morning. The Office app preview is available on Google Play now, and for iOS users that are using Testflight. There’s no date yet for when the app will launch outside of preview.
