皇冠体育appmicrosoft has just released an app that is poised to rule them all – a unified office application. the new app allows the use of word, powerpoint, and excel, without the lengthy task of downloading them each.
alongside these, the simplified office app also features onedrive integration and scanning documents, with the aid of office lens. there is also a qr code reader if users should need it for whatever reason.
there are also a few minor additions to the app's word, excel, and powerpoint elements. first is the app's word dictation, in which the users are allowed to turn their voice into written text and use voice commands and toolbars to apply the right formatting and punctuation.
the excel cards view is also a highlight. this feature allows you to view and edit data in an excel table row in a format that is both simple and digestible. with this in tow, users will no longer have to span across columns which extend beyond the limits of the display.
meanwhile, the app's outline to powerpoint feature will allow its users to write their presentation content as a simple outline and let powerpoint designer turn it into presentable slides with the contents' proper styling, formatting, and iconography.
皇冠体育appthere is one major caveat, however, with microsoft's unified app. currently, the app doesn't have support for tablets or even chromebooks. the app is reportedly locked to portrait mode and doesn't feature a tablet-specific user interface.
as to when this type of ui will reach the tablets, microsoft shared that a "fully-optimized tablet experience will be available on both ipados and android soon."
so how about the existing, separate office applications? at the time of this writing, microsoft hasn't confirmed yet whether it will be discontinued at some point in favor of the newly-minted simplified app.
most microsoft fans already knew that the new, unified office app was coming. in early 2019, the company began testing a combined office app and released a public preview in november. the accompanying beta did not progress and reverted to private testing after that phase.
