Following the Windows 9 build leaks, information about the upcoming Microsoft Office suite has leaked. The Verge today posted few screenshots and information about of this upcoming Office version. As per the report, Microsoft has already started sharing builds of Office Technical Preview to its partners and testers. One major feature coming in the next release is the ‘Tell Me’ feature currently found in the Office Online web apps. Check the screenshot above.
What is Tell Me?
We all have that Word moment when we know what we want to do, but don’t quite remember how to do it. ‘How do I apply double spacing?’ ‘How do I make this page horizontal?’ Do these questions seem familiar? Nothing to be embarrassed about. We’ve all been there and wished for an easier way to accomplish something in our document.
Available now, an easier, faster and more convenient way of doing things in Word – Tell Me. Tell Me understands what you’re trying to accomplish and helps you do it faster. So if I’m trying to make my document horizontal, Tell Me knows it’s the orientation feature I’m looking for. It brings everything I need to my fingertips.
Second major thing revealed today is the new black theme. Currently, Office 2013 only has white, light gray and dark gray themes. Check the screenshot below.
Apart from these features, Microsoft is including improvements related to adding photos in the documents. It will include automatic image rotation feature in which Office will use camera metadata to correctly position images in the documents. Also in the upcoming Outlook version, you will have option to download 1 day, 3 days, 7 days, or 14 days of email which will be handy for Windows devices with very low storage.
