Office Insider for Android updated, brings minor improvements and old changelog

Over the last few months, the Office team has been consistently releasing new updates for Office Insiders on Android devices. Two weeks ago, the last update brought more colors, IRM-protected documents support and more goodies to Android users, but today the Office team has released a new Insider build which should bump the apps to version 16.0.7030.1014.

While Microsoft shared a detailed changelog, we compared it to the previous one and found that it’s a nearly exact copy, as some items are missing such as the “annotate with ink” feature. However, you can still find the new changelog below:

Excel:

  • View IRM-protected spreadsheets: Now you can read spreadsheets protected with information rights management (IRM)
  • More colors: Now you can pick from a rainbow of colors for fonts, shapes, and all your formatting
