Office for Windows 10 detailed as Office 2016 announced

Office for Windows 10 detailed as Office 2016 announced

Microsoft may be streamlining their efforts with Windows, but they’re about to split Office in two. At yesterday’s Windows 10 party, we got glancing looks at Office on Windows 10. Today, we get a better idea of why that was. Office for Windows 10 is not all Microsoft has in store for us. There’s also Office 2016, which will be available to other platforms — and probably not quite as cool as Office for Windows 10. Luckily, Office fans won’t have to wait long, as Office 2016 comes out in the second half of this year.

Next MS Office Windows Phone app looks oddly like iOS version

While there is, without a doubt, some good in Microsoft embracing other mobile platforms, some of its own Windows Phone users feel a bit left out, if not betrayed, by Redmond's seeming neglect of its own loyal fans. Like for example, the Office Windows Phone app, which is now believed by some to be the worst version among iOS and Android.

Windows Phone hinted to be getting native Microsoft Office app

Poor Windows Phone users always among the last to get flagship apps for their device, if at all, and that has become even more apparent recently with Microsoft offering the best mobile Office experience on rival iOS and Android devices. Hopefully that will changing soon as Microsoft is expected to reveal more details about its upcoming Windows 10 operating system, and if a recent post from exec Joe Belfiore is to be believed, we'll also be seeing completely revamped Office apps for Windows Phone, equal to those on other platforms.

Google Docs supports Office file edits in Gmail

Google Docs supports Office file edits in Gmail

Google Drive and Docs are popular, but for the increasingly competitive enterprise space, Office reigns supreme. Until recently, you and your work mates had to make an ad hoc decision to go with Office or Docs, which likely caused some consternation. Even if you all got on the same page, files coming from the outside likely weren’t of the Google Docs variety. They were also likely emailed. To help on both fronts, Google ahs updated Docs routinely, and the latest lets you edit Office files from within Gmail.

Microsoft Word tops the iOS app store charts

Not 24 hours after Microsoft announced they'd be switching from a paid model to a free model of business for their Word app on iOS, the app has become the topmost Free app on the market. Imagine that! Ahead of Facebook, ahead of Facebook Messenger, and well ahead of Google Docs - which currently sits at the 93 spot. Word is currently beating out Instagram and YouTube downloads as well. Office 365 no longer needs a subscription to work, while Microsoft's battle aims to trounce its Google and Apple software competitors.

Microsoft refuses to slow down on its software push, with a new free Office suite for iPhone and by dropping its Office 365 subscription requirement for its iOS and upcoming Android apps, as it redoubles its efforts to grab mobile user share.

Outlook for Mac is here (but there’s a catch)

The new Outlook for Mac has finally made its much-anticipated debut, revamping the email app for Apple's computers with a boost in performance and a switch to the cleaner UI we've seen on other recent Microsoft apps. Matching more closely its iPad, iPhone, and Android Outlook Web App counterparts, as well as Outlook's web and PC versions, the new email app should also run faster and crash less than before, thanks to Microsoft's backend improvements. However, before you get too excited, there's a strong possibility that you won't be able to use it.
