Microsoft today announced the upcoming new features and improvements to its Office apps for Android users. The company is currently rolling out new improvements and features for the preview version of Office for Insiders.

The latest update pushes the version to 16.0.10325.20010 on Android devices. Microsoft Word is getting new features in the latest update with Microsoft letting the office users see the word count while working with larger documents.

The users will always be able to know the number of words by constantly viewing them while reading. Zooming improvements are also being pushed out to Microsoft Word which now fit documents to the screen without wasting any space. This option is especially useful for devices with smaller screen display.

The Outlook users on Android will now be able to delete contacts and are also getting a do not disturb option which lets them turn off email notifications when in a meeting or at night.

Capturing and Sharing images is now possible in PowerPoint with the latest Office update. Users can capture and share images directly from their smartphones while using the PowerPoint application in the absence of PC.

Microsoft has also added a review mode for PowerPoint which enables users to view the slides both in portrait and landscape modes. The users will also be able to read and edit the slides along with having access to comments and notes while working with a presentation.

As reported, all the new features are part of the Office July 2018 update which is currently being rolled out for Office Insiders on Android and we expect Microsoft to push the features to all Android users next month.

If you are an Office Insider on an Android device, then the Office update is currently available for download. Do let us know your thoughts in the comments below after working with the new features over the weekend.
