Microsoft announces Office Mobile Insider build 17.7369 for Windows 10

Microsoft today announced a new Office Insider build for those using the Windows 10 apps. Version 17.7369 is available from the Windows Store now.

The new build contains a number of new features for Word and Excel, but the focus seems to be on OneNote. Here's what's new:

  • Open more file types in Excel Mobile Open files that contain ActiveX controls or files containing text and web queries on your Windows 10 tablet or phone.

  • Export to PDF with Word Mobile Save your document in a widely sharable format that preserves layout, formatting, fonts and images.

You can see that some of the new features are exclusive to tablets, but most of them are available for Windows 10 Mobile devices as well.

Microsoft tends to update the apps monthly, which is why it's calling this the September update. The last one came on August 16, making today's build right on schedule.

Unlike on Android, Mac, and desktop Windows, you can't just sign up for the Office Mobile Insider builds. You'll need to have your PC or phone on a Windows Insider build, and have an Office 365 subscription.
