Office 365 subscribers using Microsoft Forms have been getting new features consistently since it launched in 2016. Now Microsoft seems to want to make a more concerted effort to compete with Google Forms. To that end, the company has created a roadmap for the remainder of the year.
This is an internal roadmap for Microsoft Forms. However, WalkingCat has found it and leaked it on Twitter. Users of the service can now see which features and abilities they will get in the coming months.
For example, during the third quarter of the year (Q3 2018), features like a progress base, folder support, and an insert ability will arrive. Additionally, Microsoft will also add support for mobile forms. In all, these new abilities will make Microsoft Forms a more robust competitor to Google Forms.
Looking further ahead, Microsoft has segmented each coming quarter and listed features it will bring to Forms in each one. Of course, this is by no means definitive, so some features may be dropped and other new ones added. Still, it offers a decent look at what to expect from the Office 365 tool.

Also, it is worth pointing out that Microsoft Forms Preview should reach all users by the end of the year.
Microsoft Forms is a platform that helps professionals and educators create content in minutes. Forms can be surveys, feedback forms, or quizzes. They can be shared with anyone and form owners can see results of completed forms in real time.
To use the service, users must hold an Office 365 Education subscription and a Microsoft work or school account.
