Microsoft on Monday unveiled a new Office app for iOS and Android that combines three most popular apps — Word, Excel and PowerPoint — into a single go-to app for mobile productivity.

The users no longer need to download each app separately, the tech giant announced at its flagship “Ignite” conference here.


“With the new Actions pane, you can intuitively complete a variety of common on-the-go tasks, such as creating and signing PDFs and sharing files between devices,” said Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365.

Launched as a public preview, the Office app is available to Android users through Google Play Store and to iOS users through Apple’s TestFlight programme.

The new Office app uses the unique advantages of mobile devices to make content creation easier. For instance, you can snap the picture of a document and turn it into an editable word file, or transform tables from a printed page to Excel.

Microsoft Edge is now available across devices, including Windows 10, Windows 8x, Windows 7, macOS, iOS and Android, said the company. (IANS)

Moving from gifts to personal stories: Gifts are no longer just confined to material items of a certain 'price tag'.

It's a fact that preserving memories is now a lot easier with delivery partners that can convert digital memories into actual personalised frames, albums and a host of memorabilia. And this makes it so much easier and quicker for you to hold meaningful memories close to your heart.
