Microsoft will soon add new features to the Office applications written for Android. The changes will cover selected applications. For now, we do not know the official release date. However, we know what to expect from it.

The Office suite intended for mobile devices has already received many updates, it is also available in an increasing number of devices, thanks to Microsoft's agreement with manufacturers. Applications are very popular, so the company tries to constantly update them, to encourage them to use them on smartphones or tablets. For now, however, their functionality differs slightly from what we have in computer versions. What is waiting for us soon? New products that were missing or only cosmetics?

What's new in Word and PowerPoint?

As part of Build 16.0.10325.20010 update, mobile Word will receive functionalities that allow displaying the number of words in a document not only when scrolling. In addition, an option will appear where you can further enlarge the document that will fit the screen without wasting space. This was missing in mobile Word. When it comes to PowerPoint , users will be able to quickly capture and share improved images with fewer clicks, and access to comments and notes, read and edit slides much easier, regardless of the screen orientation (vertical or horizontal). Changes will certainly improve the comfort of using the application.

Outlook will also receive new features

A lot of changes are also waiting for Outlook . You will see here, among others the ability to delete contacts from a smartphone position. There will also be a Do Not Disturb (DnD) mode that will allow you to disable email notifications at any time. Both the new Word PowerPoint and Outlook can be downloaded from the Play Store as part of the Office Insider Community. Refreshed packages are likely to be received by users in July, the company's announcements are nicer. source: Microsoft
