Back at Ignite 2022 last month, Microsoft introduced new features in the pipeline for creators, one of them being a new dedicated website called Microsoft Create. A month on from the introduction, Microsoft Create is now making its debut in preview.
It is available for subscribers of Microsoft 365 and will help users leverage creative apps and services more easily.
In fact, Microsoft describes the portal as “the ultimate creator launchpad” that allows users to develop graphic designs, presentations, imagery, videos, and other types of creative content. Furthermore, Microsoft says this is more than just a toy as it is catered to professional creators with templates and apps that will help designs.
Microsoft Create is now live online for users to visit, although you'll need to sign in to your Microsoft 365 account. While there is a large selection of templates available, Microsoft says users can still customize them to add their own individual touch.
Templates are easy to find because Microsoft groups them by platform (Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, and others. Another way to sort through templates is by topic (flyers, birthdays, portfolios, etc.)
Microsoft points out Create is still in its early stages and the preview may still be unstable. For example, Microsoft says the website is currently only available in English and some templates cannot be customized unless you sign up for early access to Microsoft Designer.
Microsoft is not saying when the launch date of the full Create website will happen. Even so, if you have Microsoft 365 and are a creator, it may be worth checking out the preview. Microsoft is likely to stabilize and add new features even to the preview in the coming weeks and months.
