Office 365

As we’re approaching the end of April, Microsoft Office’s team published its monthly recap of all the new features released for Office 365 over the course of this month.

Microsoft To-Do

To-Do is a task management app that might replace Wunderlist. Users can find it available in preview online on Windows 10, iOS, and Android.

Skype UWP

The app is finally out of preview and its newest version makes use of Compact Overlay windows available for UWP apps from Windows 10 Creators Update. Skype UWP is still a work in progress that comes with Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

Skype Translator has added Japanese speech translation this month.

Designer

Usually, iPads are not considered productivity devices. Microsoft seems to think they are though, as Office iOS continues to work smoothly. Powerpoint users might have noticed that Designer is available in the mobile presentation app, so you can now get professional design options when you’re on the go with your iPad.

Outlook Customer Manager

This important addition is now rolling out to all Office 365 Business Premium subscribers. This fresh feature is available in Outlook on Windows desktops, the web, and iOS. It gives users automatic reminders regarding customer inquires, suggested company information from Bind and integration with Microsoft Flow.

Office 365 Groups

Outlook users can also enjoy the fact that Office 365 Groups is now supported in Outlook for iOS, macOS, and Android. The latest Group integration is now rolling out to new platforms. Users can now view their groups list, read and respond to conversations, add group events to the calendar, and so on.

Another important feature is the integration of Office 365 groups with Office desktop apps on Windows. Users can now edit documents in their frequently used groups much easier because of this.

The Office team also announced more security and compliance updates for Office 365 and an expansion of the Office 365 Enterprise K1 Plan which will provide better value to frontline workers. This last plan involves more products, such as Skype for Businesses, Microsoft Teams, and StaffHub. Its price will remain the same: $4 per month.

All these features will begin rolling out in the next few weeks, according to Microsoft.
