Earlier this year we announced real-time co-authoring support for Word 2016 as part of the Office 2016 Preview. For the last several months, this feature has been available to preview users co-authoring Word documents stored on SharePoint Online. Today, we are pleased to announce that real-time co-authoring is also available as a first-look for Word documents stored on OneDrive as part of the latest Office 2016 Preview release.
Earlier this year, we announced a preview of the new Outlook.com, featuring a refined inbox, new ways to collaborate, an upgraded calendar and support for partner add-ins, including Uber, PayPal and Boomerang. Today, we’re pleased to announce new partnerships with Evernote, Yelp, IFTTT and Wunderlist to deliver solutions for both consumer and commercial Outlook users. In addition, we’re expanding the rollout of the new Outlook.com to a broader audience.
Today, we are happy to announce exciting updates coming to the web version of Outlook in Office 365. We are rolling out an improved user interface and new features to help you stay on top of your inbox and manage your calendar. Formerly known as the Outlook Web App (or OWA for short), our browser-based Outlook experience will now simply be referred to as “Outlook on the web.”
Office 365, the world’s most popular productivity solution, has been integrated with popular educational open source software such as Moodle and Open edX. Office’s open REST APIs make it possible for teachers and students to take advantage of Office’s rich authoring capabilities to create content, submit assignments, provide feedback, and manage class schedules, all within a single sign-on (SSO) experience enabled by Azure Active Directory.
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.
