Microsoft has unveiled a big update to the Office app on Windows, Android, and iOS at Microsoft Ignite 2022 (opens in new tab), which rebrands the app to “Microsoft 365” and adds a handful of new features and changes. The new app is an “evolution” of the previous experience, designed to align the service with the rest of the Microsoft 365 brand.

In addition to the already available features of the old Office app, which consists of being able to create new documents, see a list of recently opened documents, and access locally or cloud-saved files and content, the new rebranded app experience adds the following new features and enhancements:

  • A new feed: A new way to keep up with work by showcasing shared files from the people users work with and trending content in a bite-sized card format.
  • Apps module: A redesigned interface to access any Microsoft 365 app and related third-party apps. The apps module is now available on mobile for the first time.
  • Tagging: A new, intuitive way for users to organize their work independent of where files are stored.
Microsoft says the updated app with the new Microsoft 365 branding will begin rolling out in November. The new app, just like the old one, is a web app and is based on web technology, which allows Microsoft to provide the same experience across different platforms, including the web browser, Windows, and mobile platforms.

Microsoft gives us a first look at the new Microsoft 365 app​

At its annual Ignite 2022 event, Microsoft announced a plethora of new features for Microsoft 365 users. But what apparently turned out to be the most exciting among consumers was the new Microsoft 365 app designed to replace the current Office application. Days after announcing, Microsoft has finally given us the first look at it.

The Microsoft 365 YouTube channel has posted a video showing some of the key features of the app. Besides showing its new look and a new icon, the video talks about how it can be a hub for all your documents, presentations, and files across all your apps, including third-party content. The video is 55 seconds long, so not everything is covered. But it highlights a good set of features. These include the following:
  • The ability to search and find files shared by specific people.
  • Creating new content with the help of pre-designed templates.
  • All the Microsoft apps, third-party apps, and your company apps can be found.
  • The Feed helps you prepare for your upcoming meetings, see updates from people you follow, and much more.
  • Personalized recommendation powered by Microsoft Graph.
  • Quick access to all your recent files.
