Office 365 is constantly being updated across Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Office Online. Are you aware of these four updates introduced last month?
1) Office Online joins forces with Skype
Skype and Office Online – we think this is the start of a beautiful friendship. Now you can co-authour while having a conversation within the document. All instant messaging history is saved connected to the document, so no flitting between screens trying to match notes.
2) A new Chrome extension makes finding or starting your documents a snap
Now you can open Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Sway documents through Office Online directly from your Chrome browser. Have documents saved on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or your computer? This extension lets you access any of those through Chrome as well.

3) Office for Android gets a facelift
The latest Office Android app update reduced the footprint by 40%. The sign up/sign in experience is now quicker, easier, and smoother.
Use an Android for work? Good news, the Office apps are now business-ready with Android M support for Enterprise. They’re also compliant with Android for Work.
4) Visual Basic Editor gets an update in Office 2016 for Mac
The Visual Basic Editor has been given a refresh based on developer requests. Improvements include:
– ability to add Modules from within the Project Viewer
– ability to add Library References using a Dialog
– ability to use shortcut keys for debugging
– the addition of two new commands to the Visual Basic object model: GrantAccesstoMultipleFiles and AppleScriptTask
– the addition of a conditional command: MAC_OFFICE_VERSION
