Office 365 gets new Word, PowerPoint and Outlook features

From CIO

"Microsoft has announced a new set of features designed to help Office 365 users save time and increase productivity. The cloud services bring new capabilities and insights to three of Microsoft's most popular business applications: Word, PowerPoint and Outlook.

'Editor', a new feature in Word, for example, is designed to help you improve your writing by suggesting changes beyond simple misspellings and grammatical errors. The digital writing assistant will provide more advanced proofing and editing suggestions over time, and it will eventually explain why specific words or phrases may not be accurate, according to Microsoft. The feature will also zero-in on changes in tone, inconsistent language, slang, clichés, passive voice and other common writing errors. Office 365's new Word Editor will become available next month, according to Microsoft.

‘Researcher’, another tool coming to Word, offers a new window meant to help you research and explore material related to topics of interest. Researcher pulls information from outside sources and the Bing Knowledge Graph. (Last summer, the company released a Bing Knowledge Graph application programming interface (API) to let developers incorporate Bing data into their apps.) Microsoft says it will add more reference materials to Researcher, including well-known encyclopedias, history databases, and national science and health centres. The tool is available now, but only for Office 365 subscribers who use Word 2016 on Windows desktops.”
