Microsoft had a lot to talk about at its event last week. It finally lifted the wraps off of Windows 10. Gave us a glimpse at some of the new features that its building and even unveiled its vision for hologram technology for the masses with HoloLens. Touched based Office apps also made an appearance during the event and now Microsoft has posted a video demonstration online to talk more about these apps.
Jeremy Chapman and Ben Walters, Microsoft team members, host this video demonstration in which they explain the capabilities of these touch based Office apps with the example of a fictional camera company. They show how these apps can be used for serious productivity on Windows tablets and hybrid devices.
All of the core Office apps, Word, PowerPoint and Excel, are demonstrated in this video. The team members also explain features like Tellme, Insights and inking support that have been built into these touch enabled Office apps.
Microsoft has only released the touch app for OneNote right now which is included in the latest Windows 10 build. All of the rest have only been announced and haven’t been released.
The company hasn’t said when they will arrive but presumably they won’t be long as these apps will first be released in preview form.
