Microsoft’s New Office App Merges Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Into One

Microsoft’s New Office App Merges Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Into One

Just like on Windows and Mac PCs, Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Android and iOS device are now available for download as separate apps.

Microsoft Office may not be as popular as it once was, but millions of people still use the suite of apps.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint & more (yes, don't doubt it, it's the name of the app) doesn't require you to download apps individually like how we're used to working on your Microsoft files.

The Office beta app consists of some powerful features like converting a document picture into an editable Word file on a single tap, transforming the table picture into a spreadsheet file, and allowing the powerpoint to create presentations by selecting photos from the phone automatically.

Notably, Microsoft also told CNet, that the new Office app will not be replacing the existing three individual apps. Instead, Microsoft is simply making the Office app a unified hub for your productivity-related needs. Moreover, the Sticky Notes integration helps the users to dwell notes without using Sticky Notes App.

Outlook for mobile is also getting an upgrade with a new "Play My Emails" feature that's available on iOS from today (in the US) and will arrive on Android next year.

Home is where you'll see recent Office documents from your OneDrive account, and you can also browse or search your full OneDrive file structure by tapping the buttons in the top-right corner.

The app, though similar to the Office app that comes pre-installed on Windows 10, includes a new Actions pane that Microsoft claims will make for easier document editing on-the-go; you'll able to create and sign PDFs from your smartphone, for example, and sharing files has also been streamlined.

If you don't have a bunch of files already stored locally, the app looks pretty bare.
