Office Android Microsoft

Microsoft has rolled out new updates for the Android versions of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, which form the company’s productivity Office suite. None of the updates are especially expansive in adding new features and functionality, but there are some interesting additions nonetheless.

Each of the Office apps on Android are getting a new feature called “Tell Me”, which allows users to improve the in-app search by looking for items with a few simple taps. Tell Me allows users to search for features, commands, and action without needing to go through the process of opening various panes and lists.

That is the only new addition to Microsoft PowerPoint, but Microsoft Word managed to also get the ability to split and merge cells, and Microsoft Excel receives an improved autocomplete functions.

Here’s the complete change log for the updated apps:

Microsoft Word

Merge and split cells: Merge cells to make a heading span across columns, or split cells to show the right level of detail

Microsoft Excel

Better Autocomplete: Just start typing, and Excel will do a better job of finishing the text for you

Group and Outlines: Get to the right level of detail. Now you can expand or collapse grouped rows and columns
