Microsoft Proposes Major Office Updates Coming To Mobile This Month

Microsoft, a technology company from America, is said to planning for some big improvements for its mobile Office apps. The company might roll out these improvements for everyone this month.

Reportedly, Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook will be going through a few changes on Android as well as iOS. After discarding its own Windows Mobile platform in October 2017, Microsoft was focused to ensure that the Android and iOS apps of the company will offer the best user experience. So, the company is offering regular updates with major upgrading and fixes in its apps. The most recent update for Office on Android and iOS is planned to launch in this month.

Microsoft is offering Word users of both platforms with the facility to find out their word count when they are scrolling through a document. It can be seen at the bottom of the screen so that the user does not have to search for it in the menu options.

Android and iOS users will be also offered an ability to sync the draft messages across all devices in Outlook. Now, the user can start writing their emails on a tablet or desktops and complete them using their desktop, and vice-versa.

Outlook users on Android also will be able to delete contacts in their address book. They also are offered a “Do Not Disturb” feature that allows the user to stop the notifications for the particular time period.

Microsoft is including these improvements in Office 2.15 version for iOS and build 16.0.10325.20043 for Android. The user can search for the updates on the Google Play and App Store.

On a related note, recently Walmart and Microsoft announced their collaboration focused on the cloud technology. This partnership is said to be occurred to compete with Amazon. Both the companies have announced a five-year agreement that will be focused at powering the complete range of cloud solutions of Microsoft. Walmart proclaimed that this partnership will help in making faster and easier shopping for customers.
