Microsoft 365 February Updates All About Fluid Framework

Fluid Framework

As is the norm for Redmond towards the end of each month, the company has shared a look at the additions and updates made to Microsoft 365 over the course of February.

Which you can find right about here.

While the marquee update for this month was the general availability of the unified Office mobile app on iOS and Android last week, there are a handful of other improvements to take note of as well. Most of these are focused on enhancing the collaboration experience across the suite.

For starters, PowerPoint has seen the comment system amped up with the ability to add comments to objects, use @mentions, and better comment discoverability.

Visio is also getting in on the action, with support for real-time co-authoring. Furthermore, these improvements are also enabled in Microsoft Teams thanks to this new integration. As an example, new Visio drawings can also now be created right inside Teams from the Files tab.

Not the one to miss out, Word now has improved support for text-to-speech, while Voice Dictation on the web is also rolling out to all users.

One Note has been updated to include a dark mode, alongside improved inking capabilities.

More notably, though, Microsoft has announced that the Fluid Framework that was announced at BUILD last year is now available in public preview for Office 365 enterprise users. This new feature breaks down barriers by allowing document components to be taken from one app and placed in another.

Continuing onto the business side of things, administrators are treated to a bunch of new customization capabilities for their company resources. They can now create a custom page for Microsoft Search results inside an organization.

It also possible for them to set what features are visible in the “What’s New” list in the Office apps.

And rounding out the updates, we have FastTrack and App Assure support for the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, to go with availability of Office 365 services from German datacenter regions.

What a month!
