Office Mobile apps receiving new features with latest update

14

Windows Phone 8.1 was one of the three major operating systems which had a build in Office Suite. Now with Windows 10 Mobile Microsoft has introduced their mobile Office apps. Those can be downloaded from the universal Windows Store and can be installed on mobile devices, Tablets as well as PC’s and other devices running Windows 10. With these apps you can open, edit and create office documents, however if you want to edit them you’ll have to be an Office 365 Subscriber. Which by the way brings you 1TB of OneDrive storage apart from the full office suite for all of your devices.

Microsoft keeps on improving those apps and while the company is not that good in including changelogs for their updates, they are always adding a little note on first start-up of an app. There they are showing you what new things they have implemented for Office 365 Subscribers. With the latest update wave Microsoft had update Word, OneNote, PowerPoint and Excel whereas Excel and Word included such a note on the start-up.
