The Microsoft 365 apps are undergoing a redesign, and the company has recently provided a look into the future layout changes and what they’ll offer to the users.
The teaser released by Microsoft provided a look into its upcoming 365 apps along with some of the new features that’ll be available to the users. With remote work culture gaining popularity amidst the shadow of the pandemic, Microsoft is all set to welcome a future where a large number of people will rely on the Office applications following the trend of remote work culture.
In April, Microsoft released a Remote Work Trend Report. The report was gathered by examining the global usage of Microsoft Office apps during the initial stage of the worldwide lockdown. This report indicated that people continued to work from home even after the lockdown was lifted. Meanwhile, Microsoft has been working on developing its Office 365 features with the help of regular updates and launching additional features. This was done in order to keep up the pace with the competitors. It has been three years since Microsoft has been working to integrate its Office utility apps under the umbrella of Office 365 Apps, this also consists of the arrival of several developments to the UI, for making it a smoother experience to the users. Today several companies rely on Office apps. Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Teams, are some widely used applications for carrying out day-to-day office work.
Due to this reason, the future of Microsoft 365 excites many stakeholders. Microsoft has now teased about some more developments. Microsoft Office’s design head, Jon Friedman, in a Medium post, describes how the designers aim to make the UI minimalistic. The changes, however, span beyond the look of the apps; and also comprise a bunch of features to improve functionality and smoothness.
