Home » News » Windows 10 Insiders receive Office Hub feature

There have been talks for quite some time now about a possible Windows 10 feature revolving around improved overall control over everything Office-related. The anticipated feature, which was known under the name Office Hub, has been now pushed to users from the Windows 10 Insider program. The Insider program allows enlisted Windows 10 users to test updates ahead of their official release to live, sort of like a beta testing phase.

It has been uncovered that Microsoft included Office Hub in the Get Office app which most people are already familiar with. The Get Office app is used as a help guide for installing Office. While inspecting the new Office Hub, certain features have been revealed although not the kind users were expecting.

Windows 10 users were led to believe that the Office Hub feature which was expected for the Creators Update for Windows 10 was, in fact, a central operating base from where people could manage their Office apps, share with other users, and do many other useful things. Among the predicted functionality, a potential integration of Cortana was mentioned.

Getting back to the matter at hand, the Get Office app which has been supplied with the Office Hub upgrade now includes different guides under the Help and Training section, as well as the ability to see your recently used documents and account details.

The app is still called Get Office, which could possibly indicate that Microsoft has just added the part of Office Hub that enhances Get Office and not the whole thing. The Creators Update, which was slated to feature the Office integration tool, still has quite a bit of time before launching as it was scheduled for a 2017 release — meaning that Microsoft may be holding the bulk of OfficeHub for that occasion.
