Microsoft has just rolled out a new update for its Office preview version aimed at Android devices, introducing a series of improvements and new features for the built-in productivity apps.
Version 16.0.7127.1002 is exclusively available for members of the Office Insider for Android program, but as it usually happens, it’s just a matter of weeks until retail users get these updates too.
Microsoft Word now comes with tables built for touch, and users are now provided with options to drag tables around, with text automatically wrapping around. Excel can now open files that contain ActiveX controls, according to the official change log (which you can find in full in the box after the jump).
All three apps included in the Office suite, namely Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, come with support for SD cards, so users can now save documents anywhere on an SD card if they are running Android 5.0 and newer. And the same time, Microsoft is also offering options to discover more Office apps, with all three apps now making it “easy for you to discover and quickly install all the Office apps available for your Android phone and tablet.”
If you’re an insider, the new Office apps can be downloaded from the store while everyone else needs to wait a little bit longer until Microsoft makes this version publicly available for Android devices.
