Microsoft announced a great many things at its IGNITE conference but some might be disappointed by a distinct lack of the dual-screen Surface devices or even Windows 10X.Of course, that doesn’t mean it is yet again ignoring the mobile market and has, in fact, one particularly curious announcement prepared.It has just started the public beta testing of a new mobile app for Office that, on the surface, seems to simply combine three Office apps into one.Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Mobile in a single appThere’s no getting around the fact that, for many consumers, the new Microsoft Office app simply combines Microsoft’s trinity of Office apps into a single app.Microsoft does concede that it’s part of the appeal since it reduces the amount of space occupied the apps and reduces the back and forth switching between the three.
A report backed by the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security is warning government institutions not to use Microsoft's Office Online or mobile applications due to potential security and privacy risks.A report from Privacy Company, which was commissioned by the ministry, found that Office Online and the Office mobile apps should be banned from government work.The report found the apps were not in compliance with a set of privacy measures Redmond has agreed to with the Dutch government.The alert notes that in May of this year Microsoft and the government of the Netherlands agreed to new privacy terms after a 2018 report, also compiled by Privacy Company, found that Office 365 ProPlus was gathering personal information on some 300,000 workers via its telemetry features and storing them in the US.These included such things such as email addresses and translation requests.While other Windows and Office apps have been brought in compliance with those rules and no longer gather the user information, the Privacy Company said that the mobile apps and Office online are still gathering information about user activity, as are some of the features in Windows 10 Enterprise.

Microsoft Office apps have finally arrived in the Mac App Store, the company announced today.Microsoft had originally vowed to bring its Office software to the Mac App Store by the end of last year, but missed that original deadline by a few weeks.As of now, Mac owners can directly download Microsoft Office through Apple’s software portal, but they’ll need an Office 365 subscription for certain products.Microsoft Office, of course, is the company’s software suite for productivity, presentation, word processing, and more.The new Mac App Store availability brings Microsoft Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and OneDrive, but an Office 365 license is necessary to use the first four applications in the list.Mac customers have the option of purchasing an Office 365 subscription directly within the apps after downloading them from the Mac App Store; the option also remains to make the purchase through the website.
After a bit of a rocky start, Microsoft’s October 2018 update of its Windows 10 operating system is now available to all Windows 10 users.Users can now access the newest version of the Windows 10 OS 10 OS by selecting the Check for updates option within Windows Update, which includes new features such as the mobile-friendly Phone app, new inking options within Microsoft Office apps, and a new screenshot tool.The October 2018 Windows 10 update had, as its name suggests, been released in October of this year.However, the rollout had to be paused following its initial release once Microsoft received reports that some users had experienced file deletions after the update had been installed.The update was finally rereleased on November 13, but since then has had a series of upgrade blocks in place to prevent further bugs and issues from occurring within devices that had hardware or applications that were incompatible with the update.An upgrade block generally temporarily blocks “the availability of a Windows feature update” from devices Microsoft deemed more likely to experience bugs.

Microsoft has unveiled a new set of icons that the Office apps will start using.Office 365 customers will see their apps switch to the new icons over the next couple of months, as Microsoft continues to refresh the look and feel of its core productivity suite.The last time the Microsoft Office apps got new icons was 2013, with the same set of icons also used by Office 2016 and the perpetually licensed Office 2019.Since then, Office has got a great deal more mobile with apps for iOS and Android, it gained a bigger Web presence, it added a bunch of collaboration features, and it has seen many of its users switch from the perpetual licenses to the continuously updated Office 365.The new icons are meant to somehow reflect these changes.The letters adorning each icon have been reduced in size, with the remainder of the space used to show a highly stylized representation of the application.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 October 2018 update is finally here, and while it’s not a massive overhaul, there are a number of exciting new features with it.Instead of focusing on stability and security fixes, this update is all about expanding the potential of the modern Windows operating system.Here’s everything new in the October 2018 update.The new Your Phone app makes it so that you don’t need to ever physically connect your phone to your PC.Microsoft says iOS users will see functionality about a month later, through Microsoft Edge for iOS.Microsoft says that apps “must be able to describe activities to Microsoft Graph” for that feature to work, however, which means compatibility will be limited at first.

Google Drive is useful all by itself, but a number of Chrome browser extensions add more functions to Google’s cloud storage and office apps service.I covered several of these add-ons for Chrome in a previous article, “8 free Chrome extensions that enhance Google Drive.” Following is a fresh batch of Chrome extensions that can improve how you work with and manage files in Google Drive.Both extensions work on Macs as well, but with limited functionality: Clicking the icon on the Chrome toolbar launches Google Drive or Docs in a separate, resizable application window, but the icon does not appear in the macOS Dock; instead, the Drive or Docs application window appears as just another Chrome browser window in the Dock.When you drag and drop a Word, PowerPoint or Excel file on your computer's drive onto a Chrome browser window, it will be loaded into the appropriate Google office app for you to edit.The Quick Drive extension from tearoom6 takes a different approach, letting you search your Google Drive via a pop-up panel.In the panel that appears, enter the filename or keywords into the search box, and the results will appear below under the Search tab.
Anyone with an interview to transcribe, a long essay to write, a speech to caption, or perhaps some kind of typing disability has likely wished at some point that they could just turn their words, or someone else's, into text in an instant.Voice recognition software like Nuance's Dragon programs do have the power to weave speech into text, albeit often for a steep price, but now Microsoft is bringing its own app to the table, Dictate.More an add-on than a standalone application, Dictate allows users to add text to Word, PowerPoint, and even Outlook just by speaking into a microphone —ditching the need for any extra third-party software.The app comes part of Microsoft Garage, the company's studio for experimental applications that include other projects like the one-handed Word Flow keyboard, the news-aggregating News Pro, and even a facial recognition AI that identified dog breeds.In addition to supporting spoken word in over 20 languages, Dictate can also provide real-time translation for what you say into one of 60 different languages.
p For most smartphone enthusiasts over the past few years, there was always one interface that seemed to polarise users like no other.The company first used the TouchWiz moniker way back with the original Galaxy S, but seemingly dropped any mention of it on the Galaxy S2.The lack of an official alternative however meant that the name TouchWiz stuck, and with it came the unwitting connotation of a poor software experience.In 2017 however, this all looks set to change with Samsung launching its new Samsung Experience in December last year and with it, what appears to be an impressive change of focus when it comes to software.On the Galaxy S8, you still have a lot of the options but they’re housed where you expect to find them and the new “Looking for something else?” section at the bottom of each sub-menu is very useful for navigating quickly to common tasks.Diving into the settings further is where you’ll find new options to remove the ‘frames’ (aka backgrounds) from icons as well as the option to scale the display resolution between WQHD , FHD (the default scaling) and HD as needed.
Users of Chromebooks and tablets with screens larger than 10.1" will soon be unable to run full Microsoft Office Mobile apps free.Larger devices will support a free version of Office that works as a document viewer, but will be unable to print, edit or create documents without an Office 365 subscription.Android apps first became available for Chromebooks in June this year, but Microsoft has only just announced that it will be limiting its free apps."On devices larger than 10.1 inches, an Office 365 subscription is required to unlock the ability to create, edit, or print documents," the company said in a statement to 9to5 Google.The news is an extension of Microsoft s existing policy on screen size, which attempts to distinguish between mobile devices that are only suitable for personal use, and full-fat devices that can be used professionally."Based on our research, we are classifying anything with a screen size of 10.1" or less as a true mobile device, Microsoft explained when it made its decision.
Microsoft has made a concerted effort over the last couple of years to provide solid cross-platform support for all of its applications and services.Indeed, supporting iOS and Android along with their Windows 10 ecosystem is a cornerstone of its cloud-first, mobile-first productivity solutions strategy.Chromebooks have always been a strange outlier.While users of Google s Chrome OS-based notebooks have always been able to access Microsoft s Office Online products, there has never been a dedicated app like the Office Mobile suite that has long been available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10.That is about to change, albeit in a roundabout way, as 9to5Google reports.More: Office Mobile is free for editing docs on machines with smaller than 10.1-inch screens
Apple demoed plenty of apps during its MacBook Pro even on Thursday, all ready to support the exciting new Touch Bar touchscreen that will offer users a handy selection of contextual shortcuts right under the screen.One of the companies that s ready to support Apple s new computing experience is one of its biggest rivals.Even if Microsoft just announced a bunch of products that compete directly against the new MacBooks and the other Macs, the company is still ready to support customers that want to spend north of $1,800 on a Touch Bar Mac.DON T MISS: The iPhone 7 has an exciting new feature that Apple is keeping secretApple confirmed that Microsoft s Office suite will be Touch Bar-friendly, and even showed images of Office app adapted for Touch Bar use during the keynote.But Microsoft also came out with a blog post on the matter, highlighting some of the Touch Bar features it s adding to its productivity apps.
There s a fresh batch of business apps on the way from the Office team aiming to boost the productivity chops of users.Apart from Bookings, which allows customers to schedule appointments with businesses, and we heard about back in July it was first launched on the web, with an iOS app recently released in the US , Microsoft also has a Mile IQ app which automatically tracks your mileage for expenses purposes.That comes alongside a new Invoice app which generates invoices, unsurprisingly, and Spend, which aims to track all your expenses.Those are all finance-centric offerings, but there are two more apps called Point pictured above and Presence.The former is designed to allow businesses to leverage satisfied customers in terms of generating word-of-mouth referrals – and those customers will get rewards for referring friends.As for the latter, that enables users to track their web presence.
