Video showcases the new Microsoft 365 app

Microsoft 365

There’s an app for that! Microsoft announced a range of new features coming to Microsoft 365 at its annual Ignite 2022 conference. And perhaps the most notable announcement was that of an app.

Yes, a new Microsoft 365 app is being readied to replace the current Office application.

Days after announcing this new piece of software, the software titan has prepared a short video that provides us with a first look at this upcoming application and all the features and options it is expected to bring.

The video has been posted on the official Microsoft 365 YouTube channel, and is a rather quick one that goes over some of the key features of the app.

At just 55 seconds in length, there is not much time to go into detail, but it suffices for an initial peek at the upcoming app.

Give it a watch:

We get a look at the new icon of the app, as well as its new look, and the clip does a good job of showing how this app will serve as a new hub for all your documents, presentations, and files across all your applications. It will even include third-party content.

Quick access to all your recent files is also available right within.

You also get the ability to easily search for and find files shared by specific people, and all your company apps are also conveniently located.

A feed is there to help you prepare for your upcoming meetings and see updates from the people you follow, while personalized recommendations are also available, powered by Microsoft Graph.

So, a pretty neat package overall.

Interestingly, the Office app on Google Play Store has now been renamed to Office (Microsoft 365), though it does not offer the new functionalities that are highlighted in the video above.

This rebranding is all part of the new drive from the company to put the Microsoft 365 branding left, right, and center. Redmond has said that Office.com, the Office app for Windows, and the Office mobile app will all become the Microsoft 365 app in the coming months.
