Microsoft rolls out Office for Android version 16.0.7030.1014 for all users

Microsoft released a new build of Office for Android today, bringing the version number to 16.0.7030.1014. The update contains new features for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Here's what's new:

Excel

  • View IRM-protected spreadsheets: Now you can read spreadsheets protected with information rights management (IRM)
  • More colors: Now you can pick from a rainbow of colors for fonts, shapes, and all your formatting
  • Add shortcut to your home screen: Add your favorite files to the home screen to keep them handy
  • Export to OpenDocument Format: You can now export a spreadsheet to the OpenDocument Spreadsheet (.ods) format

Word

  • View IRM-protected documents: Now you can read documents protected with information rights management (IRM)
  • More colors: Now you can pick from a rainbow of colors for fonts, shapes, and all your formatting
  • Add shortcut to your home screen: Add your favorite files to the home screen to keep them handy
  • Open plain-text files: You can now open files that were saved in plain text (.txt) format
  • Export to OpenDocument Format: You can now export a document to the OpenDocument Text (.odt) format

PowerPoint

  • More colors: Now you can pick from a rainbow of colors for fonts, shapes, and all your formatting
  • View IRM-protected presentations: Now you can read presentations protected with information rights management (IRM).
  • Format Background: Customize a slide by adding the background color of your choice.
  • Add shortcut to your home screen: Add your favorite files to the home screen to keep them handy
  • Export to OpenDocument Format: You can now export a presentation to the OpenDocument Presentation (.odp) format.

If that changelog looks familiar to you, you're not crazy. The company released the build for Office Insider a couple weeks ago. The only difference is that the Insider build (16.0.7030.1005) had an Annotate with Ink feature, which seems to be missing from the public build.

If you want to join the Office Insider Program for Android, you can head over to the Google+ community, join it, and sign up as a beta tester. If you're not interested, it would appear that Microsoft is sticking to monthly updates, with the previous one on May 26.
