Yesterday, we reported about the upcoming Work Assistant app for Windows Phone. For starters, the Work Assistant app will help users with several different Office tasks. Work Assistant also comes with Microsoft’s Cortana app which will allow users to voice command. However, today, WBI leaked a handful of screenshots:
The app isn’t an assistant only – from what we can see on the screenshots, it looks like an Office hub where users can find all of their Office documents. The app’s user interface is pretty simple – there is a voice command bar on the top which will allow users to use voice command to trigger a task. Users will probably be able to trigger tasks such as opening a document and sharing a document with others on the app.
For those of you who don’t know, the Work Assistant application is being developed by Microsoft’s Digital Life + Work Group, which is part of the Applications and Services Group (ASG) run by Qi Lu. Julie Larson-Green, Chief Experience Officer of ASG, is believed to be spearheading the Work Assistant effort, and Bill Gates has been involved.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Work Assistant app is available in the Windows Phone Store as well.
