The best new features in Microsoft 365
Microsoft overhauled its entire offer. The objective of this new version: “share, connect and collaborate with your friends and family on the web and on Windows, MacOs, iOS and Android devices”. New features make the work of professionals easier.
For the 38 million subscribers to Office 365 (launched in 2010), the switch is automatic. But it is not a simple rebranding (change of name). For Microsoft, it’s about marking the occasion as the cloud and artificial intelligence invite themselves into the functions of the suite.
Proof with Microsoft Editor that simplifies writing with AI-powered smart assistance features in Word. Microsoft Editor is also integrated with Outlook (and Outlook.com) to optimize the writing of your emails.
Microsoft Editor can be considered a more “smart” grammar checker that can correct all your standard grammar errors. Last year, Microsoft announced rewrite suggestions for short sentences.
Today, Editor’s capabilities allow the rewriting of longer and therefore more complete sentences. It can also help you avoid errors in word choice.
This new AI -powered service is now available in 20 languages in Word and Outlook.com. It will also be available as a plug-in for Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome .
PowerPoint also gets an updated Designer to help you create more relevant and accessible presentations. This software can now easily transform a text into a timeline, for example. And when you add an image, it can present you with a set of potential slides.
More original, PowerPoint also offers a “Presenter Coach” which gives you speaking tips for your next oral presentations .
To enrich all your projects, new content is also at your disposal: more than 8,000 visuals and 175 videos from Getty Images, more than 300 new fonts and 2,800 icons, as well as more than 200 new templates, usable on Word , Excel and PowerPoint.
Finally, Microsoft has partnered with publishers like Adobe, Bark, Blinkist, Creative Live, Experian, Headspace, and TeamSnap to offer Microsoft Dynamics 365 subscribers additional benefits like time-limited access to their products and services. For example, subscribers will get three months of free access to Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography.
Remember that the Microsoft 365 Business range includes editions of the Microsoft productivity suite intended for VSEs-SMEs. Unlike Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions, they also integrate collaborative work applications, first and foremost Microsoft Teams team messaging , the SharePoint enterprise content management portal and Exchange business messaging.
