Few days ago, Microsoft released its monthly September update for Office mobile. This time, its Office for Windows.

The Ink replay feature is a new addition to PowerPoint, which lets user rewind any inking on PowerPoint slide. New update also adds Feedback option under File menu for all Office 2016 apps.
