Office 365 February update
This month's update focuses on mobile platforms, bringing Box integration on iOS and multiple features for Windows-powered handsets.

Microsoft has recently updated Office 365 and added "a number of exciting new capabilities in Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint." Most of the changes target users of mobile devices, no matter if they use Windows, Android, or iOS. Obviously, not all platforms get the same changes, but most of them are common.

These are the changes to Office 365 that will make the whole experience of using it "even easier, more natural, fluid and contextual" once this month's update has been applied:

  • annotate with ink on Windows tablets using pen or finger, no printing required
  • pin docs to the Start menu on Windows tablets, smartphones, and phablets
  • Box integration on iOS
  • insert images via the camera on tablets, phablets, and smartphones

In addition to the above, Excel now features more functions, sharing options, and charts. Outlook 2016 gets one-click archive capabilities, as well as improved Office 365 Groups connectivity. More details are available on the official Office Blogs.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
