Office Mobile brings touch-first productivity to Windows 10

Office Mobile brings touch-first productivity to Windows 10

What is Windows without Office really? Now that Windows 10 is out the door, it's only fitting that Microsoft also release the productivity suite to go along with it. No, it isn't the full blown Office 2016 yet, which will be coming later this year. This is Office Mobile, Microsoft's "touch-first" version of Office that was designed from the ground up for on the go use. Designed with tablets in mind, Office Mobile is advertised to be more suited for reading, reviewing, and editing rather than complete content creation.

Office 2016 Public Preview: co-editing, cloud by default

It seems that Microsoft's Office team is almost ready for a big release. The next version of the desktop productivity suite, Office 2016, will carry a ton of features, some of which are both convenient and fancy but also perhaps a bit unsettling for some more traditional users. One of the highlights of the upcoming release, which can now be tested in this public preview, is the addition of collaborative editing. That said, many of these new features relies on a deeper integration with Microsoft's own OneDrive cloud storage, whose presence is palpable in almost every corner.

Microsoft moves Outlook for Android out of Preview

Microsoft moves Outlook for Android out of Preview

It took them a while but Microsoft is now declaring that its Android app for Outlook is ready for prime time. Unfortunately for Android users, Microsoft somewhat rubbed it in that their iOS counterparts actually go to that goal first. After a round of polishing, Outlook for Android is available for everyone with an Android device (and Google Play Store and running Android 4.0 or higher) and could very well take on Gmail in some features, especially when it comes to customization and offering a somewhat integrated productivity suite.

Office 365 Video launches, like YouTube for serious business

Work today has evolved quite a substantially compared to even just a decade ago. If you ever tried to mention "Video sharing" to a boss back then, you will probably be met with a puzzled look, if not incredulity. But today, sharing content and information in the workplace has moved beyond documents and pictures. They even include videos. Because of that, Microsoft is rolling out Office 365 Video globally, a tool for hosting and sharing video content for work. Think of it like YouTube, except your IT would love it.

MS Office Delve puts the focus on People, Blogs, and Mobile

MS Office Delve puts the focus on People, Blogs, and Mobile

Last year, Microsoft revealed Office Delve, a sort of Google Now-like platform that surfaces important and timely information about work, organizations, and projects.

Like a social networking service, Delve's new People profiles give more in-depth insight into a person's activities.
