Microsoft is currently holding their Windows 10 consumer event in Redmond, and they have just demoed Office on Windows Phone. Windows Phone users have been waiting for years for an acceptable version of Office. When more full featured versions came to iPhone and Android first, Windows Phone users were getting annoyed.
Now Microsoft has announced they will include a new touch first version of Office for Windows 10 on the Phone. This experience will be much better than the existing Office hub. The new Office applications will first be Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Now that these apps are Universal apps, users can expect a consistent experience between phone and tablet.
“Office universal apps on Windows 10 offer a consistent, touch-first experience across phone, tablet and PC with new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. Designed from the ground up to run on Windows, you can easily create and edit Word documents, annotate slides in real-time with new inking features or easily present PowerPoint presentations, and with new touch-first controls in Excel you can create or update spreadsheets without a keyboard or mouse. The next version of the Office desktop suite is also currently in development, more on this in the coming months,” Microsoft explained.
