New capabilities to unlock employee creativity

Ink analysis in Microsoft PowerPoint—Microsoft enhanced shape and text recognition in PowerPoint to give users more freedom to create content in a natural way. Now Microsoft 365 subscribers can convert any handwritten words on their slides into text and draw new shapes like hearts and clouds. You can also sketch out an entire slide and then convert all your drawings at the same time, instead of addressing each shape individually, making it easier to convert ideas to professional looking slides in a matter of moments.

New ink gestures in Microsoft Word

New ink gestures for editing in Word allow you to add handwritten text to a document and interact with existing content using a pen. Now Microsoft 365 subscribers can quickly split paragraphs into multiple lines, insert words into existing sentences, and join separated words, all using natural pen-based gestures. These top requested features make it easier to naturally edit documents and quickly implement changes and suggestions.

AI enhancements in Word for Mac

We brought popular AI capabilities to Word for Mac to help you work more confidently and produce superior documents. Now Mac users can translate sections of text or entire documents from over 60 languages, including 11 that use neural machine translation to understand sentence context and produce more accurate results. Subscribers can also use Resume Assistant to craft compelling resumes with personalized insights powered by LinkedIn.

Mobile editing available for more subscribers in the next few months

We’re expanding the availability of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote for iOS and Android to Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 F1, and Office 365 E1 subscribers. Once available, all Microsoft 365 subscribers will be able to install full versions of the mobile apps to create, edit, and, share documents on the go.

Office 2019 Preview now available

We also announced the preview of Office 2019 for commercial customers. This is the first in a wave of preview announcements for the Office 2019 release, starting with apps for Windows, and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access, Project, and Visio. Over the next few months, Office 2019 for Mac, plus the servers like Exchange 2019, SharePoint 2019, Project Server 2019, and Skype for Business 2019, will also launch previews.

New capabilities for the universal toolkit for teamwork

New features in Outlook for iOS

This month we introduced a range of new capabilities to Outlook. Now you can continue drafting emails in Outlook for iOS that were initially started on other devices. Draft Sync for iOS makes it easy to pick up where you left off simply by navigating to the conversation in your inbox. We’re also working to help employees connect across their company with a new Organization view on iOS that shows a complete picture of the selected user’s position in the company, including their manager, direct reports, and coworkers. Outlook also uses AI to understand work habits and communication patterns and surface other relevant contacts—outside of organization structure—to help you find the right people and resources faster.

Calendar enhancements in Outlook for Windows

We introduced the option for meeting organizers to prevent forwarding calendar invitations to recipients that weren’t on the original invite list—helping to protect user privacy and preserve the original scope of the meeting. As an attendee, you can also view the RSVP status of others, even if you didn’t organize the meeting, to make informed decisions about how to prioritize your time.

Intelligent security for the modern workplace

Advanced security features in Microsoft 365 Business

We also announced the addition of advanced security features in Microsoft 365 Business to further protect small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) from cyberthreats and safeguard sensitive information from unintentional data leaks. Advanced Threat Protection is now included to protect users against phishing and malware, and prevent devices from falling victim to ransomware and viruses. We also introduced capabilities like data loss prevention and information protection to prevent unintentional data leaks and help small business safeguard sensitive information like social security and credit card numbers. We also extended some of these advanced protection capabilities to Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers.

Enhancing enterprise security
At the RSA Conference 2018 in San Francisco, we announced several new technologies and programs that build on our unique intelligence capabilities to make it easier for enterprises to secure their assets from the cloud to the edge. These new features help organizations simulate phishing attacks, automate threat detection and response, quickly assess their security posture, and more.

Making IT Simpler with a modern workplace

Capabilities to simplify IT management

We announced a range of new capabilities coming to Microsoft 365 to help organizations minimize total cost of ownership while enhancing user experience. These new capabilities include improvements to cloud-based device management, solutions like Kiosk Browser in Windows 10 that enable delivery of services to Firstline Workers and customers, and a single integrated admin experience across Microsoft 365. These updates help reduce the number of components administrators are required to manage, reducing risk, improving user experience, and enhancing IT control.

Powering these performance gains is adaptive caching technology that understands where data needs to be and when it needs to be there for the best possible performance. Azure SQL Data Warehouse takes a blended approach of using remote storage in combination with a fast SSD cache layer (using NVMes) that places data next to compute based on user access patterns and frequency. Microsoft has also added Transparent Data Encryption with customer-managed keys to keep your data truly in your control.

Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance Center

Centralized Deployment of Outlook add-ins

Centralized Deployment for Outlook add-ins is now available in preview to commercial customers. With Centralized Deployment, administrators can quickly and easily deploy add-ins for Word, Excel, PowerPoint—and now Outlook—to individual users, groups, or an organization, right from the Office 365 admin center.

Tools for organizational compliance

We unveiled new resources and tools to help organizations meet compliance obligations like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). New capabilities across the Microsoft Cloud help you effectively demonstrate that your organization has taken appropriate steps to protect the privacy rights of individuals, with tools for data subject requests (DSR) and audit-ready, privileged access management.

Multi-Geo Capabilities in Office 365

We announced the general availability of Multi-Geo Capabilities in Office 365, a new feature that helps multinational organizations address their global data-residency requirements. Multi-Geo enables a single Office 365 tenant to span across multiple datacenter geographies, giving customers the ability to store their Exchange Online and OneDrive data in a particular region, determined on a per-user basis.
