Microsoft is testing a new feature for Office on phones this week. The company rolled out new updates for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on Android and iOS with support for @mentions, and that’s about it.
Support for @mentions has been available for Office on the desktop for a little while, and it’s really helpful when you are working on something with others. The feature essentially allows you to @ someone in a document to get their attention or direct a comment at them, much like how you’d reply to someone within a chat, for example.
@mentions for Office on Android and iOS works a lot as it does on the desktop. On Word and PowerPoint, you can @mention someone anywhere in a document or presentation, and on Excel, you can @mention someone within comments.
