Microsoft Office Mobile applications have been redesigned to provide users with improved productivity while using smaller screen devices as part of Microsoft’s “global journey to rethink, redesign, and align our mobile experiences”. Jon Friedman Head of Microsoft Office design has taken to Medium to reveal more details about the new features, design and enhancements you can expect from the Microsoft range of Office Mobile applications. Check out the video below for a quick overview of what you can expect from the newly redesigned Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Microsoft Office mobile apps.
“In many ways, mobile productivity is still a code waiting to be cracked. Beyond mobile-first and mobile-only markets where necessity mandates it, we can rarely accomplish as much on a phone as we do on our PCs. However, we believe in empowering everyone to be fully productive on any device. Our teams’ focus on emerging markets, inclusive design, and accessibility has broadened our aperture as we create more tailored, intelligent experiences across Microsoft 365.”
“Today, we’re excited to unveil redesigns to our flagship mobile apps! We’ve redesigned Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You can also expect new versions of Teams, Yammer, and Planner soon. These redesigns contribute to broader company efforts to take mobile productivity to the next level. At Microsoft Ignite, we publicly previewed our beta Office app and Fluid Framework. Office combines multiple Microsoft 365 mobile experiences in one app, and Fluid is a new technology that breaks broad experiences into dynamic, real-time components ideal for mobile scenarios.”
