New Office For Windows Phone 8 Revealed
At Office Next blog today, Microsoft detailed the upcoming version of Office platform and the strategy around it. While explaining the new cloud features of the upcoming version of Office, Microsoft posted the followingÂ with the above screenshot.
With the capabilities that we’ve built into our roaming settings service, we’re able to create new settings that will roam with you across any connected device.Â For example, Word and PowerPoint make it easy to get right back into your work by remembering where you left off in each document or presentation.Â So, if you didn’t have time to finish reviewing an important document before you had to leave work, Word will remember what paragraph you were last reading/editing when you open that document on another machine. PowerPoint remembers the slide you were on so you don’t have to go hunting for that last edit in a long deck.
These features extend to your mobile device as well. For example, your Windows Phone will show your recent files for one-touch access while you are on the go.
While this is the not the complete info on Office for Windows Phone 8, this is the first time they revealed the newÂ look of the app. The app looks same as the currentÂ Office for Windows Phone 7.x devices but with the updated new OfficeÂ logos. Even during the demo of Office 2013 yesterday, Microsoft used only our Nokia Lumia 900 device instead of a Windows Phone 8 device. I think they are maintaining the secrecy to reveal moreÂ when Windows Phone 8 consumer features will beÂ announced later this year.
