On this week’s show, we invite Michael Tejedor back to give us an update on Power BI. Michael shares news about new and upcoming content packs – allowing you to connect and gain insights into data from popular cloud services – and he demonstrates the new push APIs to allow Power BI to display real-time data from IoT devices.
Today we’re announcing the general availability of the new Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for Android phone. These join our previously released Office apps for Android tablets to complete the Office experience for the millions of Android users around the world. Download Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your Android phone today to get started.
With today’s update, Outlook now uses Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based authentication for Exchange Online mailboxes in Office 365, replacing the previously used basic authentication method. This new authentication method enables IT administrators to configure new access scenarios for sign in to Office 365 and to better control and manage Outlook on mobile devices in their organization.
On today’s show, we take a look back at the last year of updates in Office 365 and give a sneak peek of what’s coming. We cover themes from machine learning advances and how to better manage your time and find information in Delve to improved collaboration in email and native information protection in Office apps.
Over the last 12 months, we’ve transformed Office from a suite of desktop applications to a complete, cross-platform, cross-device solution for getting work done. In January, we delivered the Office apps for Android tablets—and we’re really proud of our 4+ rating in the Google Play store! Today I’m pleased to announce the preview for Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android phones.
