Microsoft Announces the February Updates for Office 365

Once again, Microsoft has announced a sweeping set of Office 365 updates that span the business and consumer versions of the service. This months updates are for Office Mobile for Windows 10 PCs and tablets, Android, iPhone and iPad, as well as Office 2016 for Windows and Mac.

Yep, just keep track of this stuff is nearly impossible. But here’s what’s new (excluding a few things I previously wrote about):

Annotate with ink on Office Mobile for Windows 10 PCs and tablets

Word, Excel and PowerPoint Mobile on Windows 10 PCs and tablets is picking up new tools in the Draw tab so you can use your finger or pen to naturally write, draw and annotate. This feature is coming first to Office Insiders, Microsoft says.

Pin documents to Start on Windows 10 PCs and tablets with Office Mobile

Now, you can pin Word, Excel or PowerPoint Mobile documents to the Windows Start experience. Just tap and hold on any document name in the Recent list and choose Pin to Start.

Insert camera images using Office Mobile for Windows and Android

You will be able to capture images with your device’s built-in camera and insert them directly into Office Mobile documents. This will ship first for PowerPoint for Office Insiders (on both Windows and Android) and will be coming soon to Word and Excel.\

Office for Mac updates

Office 2016 for Mac is being updated with Morph for PowerPoint, the ability to customize the Quick Access toolbar in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and a faster new updating scheme.
