The number of free features for Office for iPad is extremely high and the company is also releasing a test version for Google Android operating systems. John Case, the corporate vice president for Office marketing in Microsoft revealed that Microsoft is now focused upon releasing its application as a “go-to productivity app” that is available in “all platforms, devices and properties.”
The all new outlook of Microsoft has been revealed as the master plan of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella who hopes to bring back the company into the present era. The company was delving in the past and had false notions about its popularity, which has now been completely destroyed by the reduced popularity of Microsoft in almost every sector. Microsoft Office is one of the biggest parts of the strategy, since the Office for iPad was released shortly after Nadella took charge. Other evidences that prove the shift in strategy include a deal with Dropbox to store files for Office 365 subscription service by making use of Microsoft account.
Microsoft Releases iOS Apps
The iOS has already become extremely popular, evident from the 40 million downloads since its release, a new record considering the extremely short duration. Earlier, Microsoft limited the free use of Word, PowerPoint and Excel apps for iOS, which only let users read files. However, now, users can create and edit documents without paying for the entire Microsoft 365 subscription. Instead, the user only needs to sign in using their Microsoft account. However, if you require advanced features, like complicated data analysis tools in Microsoft Excel, you will have to purchase and pay for the subscription services.
Microsoft has brought in these changes in hopes of improving the popularity of Microsoft’s services and encouraging users into trying out the new Apps. If you want to know more about the same, you may contact our Microsoft Support department.
