Microsoft on Monday unveiled a new Office application for iOS and Android that combines the three most popular apps - MS Word, MS Excel and MS PowerPoint - into a single go-to app for mobile productivity.
Users no longer need to download each application separately, the technology giant announced here at its main "conference" conference.
"With new operations, you can complete simple, simple tasks like creating and signing PDFs and file sharing between devices," says Jared Spataro, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365.
Launched as a public preview, the Office app is available to Android users through the Google Play Store and iOS users through Apple's TestFlight program.
The new Office app uses the unique benefits of mobile devices to facilitate content creation. For example, you can snap a photo of a document and turn it into an editable word file, or convert it from a printed page to Excel.
The company announced the general availability of the brand new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser set for its January 15 release. The all-new Microsoft Edge Enterprise provides the New Tab Page, where users will get direct access to Microsoft 365 files.
Microsoft Edge is now available on all devices, including Windows 10, Windows 8 X, Windows 7, MacOS, iOS and Android.
