In an announcement from its Ignite Conference in Orlando, Microsoft said that it will soon test a new version of the Office app that will combine all the three apps into one centralized application. Going forward, Microsoft will be focusing on Office apps for iOS and Android.
All of your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files can be found in one timeline. I even scanned a desk from a consumer guide of an earphone to change it into an Excel spreadsheet - the textual content recognition was place on. In creating the app, Microsoft says that it "considered how people's expectations differ when using a phone versus a computer [and] set out to optimize for simplicity, efficiency, and common mobile needs". But these programs are individual apps separated from each other - there are third-party options that offer all three in one program, like WPS Office. When you go into a document, the UI takes on the color of that product. So you can create a PDF from a photo or any document. The app is available in now in public preview for Android and iOS (via Apple's TestFlight beta testing programme).
The app, though similar to the Office app that comes pre-installed on Windows 10, includes a new "Actions" pane that Microsoft claims will make it easier it edit documents on-the-go.
The Office Mobile app, which combines lightweight versions of the company's Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps, has been available on Samsung smartphones for some time. A report suggested that the new MS Office app will not replace the existing ones, but will come as a new package. You can also see your recent media or your notes from Sticky Notes on the app. Or you can search for documents across your organization if you are using a work account.
As well as, the app also lets you just take notes, type of like you would in Google Retain.
