Microsoft Office and other similar standalone software packages become obsolete slowly but surely as editing and keeping office documents in the cloud becomes the best choice for most users. Office for Android has been around for a while already and now Word, Excel, and Powerpoint receive a minor update that adds a few extra features and improvements.

First of all, Microsoft has simplified the sign-up process for those who do not have a Microsoft free account. Then, all the three apps gained more sharing options, including support for two of the most popular messaging apps in China, namely QQ and WeChat.

Microsoft Word users now can choose the color used to highlight words and sentences, but they also get a smart lookup feature that provides relevant pictures and information without having to leave the document. 

Microsoft Excel gets more table styles, as well as more options when creating new ones. The paste operation also gets a few additions, including the ability to paste values, formulas, and format from the source cell. The update also brings "view angled and rotated text" to Excel for Android.

At last, Microsoft Powerpoint for Android gets the ability to play embedded media in presentations straight from mobile devices.

All these updates are free and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
