Several Microsoft Android apps get Office Lens support in new update

Posted in:

Microsoft has updated their Powerpoint, Word, and Excel Office apps for Android devices today. Word and Powerpoint now both support Office Lens functionality which means users can use the device’s camera to directly take photos and import that media within the Office files being edited.

Powerpoint has also had its sharing improved and no longer requires users to send an entire slideshow when sharing. A single slide can now be selected. Excel can now open files that contain form controls. That may not be a feature that the average user would need but it does have its uses and is good to see added to the Android mobile app.
