New Features Coming to Office for iOS

If you use Microsoft Office for iOS, you’ll have a number of new features heading your way soon. Office Insiders can try out the new features now, but they’re expected to go out to all users in October. Among the upcoming features are new ink effects and custom pens you can use to mark up documents in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

From Phone Arena:

…among the most important new features added in the update, there’s an option to choose a personal set of pens and highlighters for inking. Also, Microsoft plans to include new ink effects meant to allow you to “express your ideas.” Metallic pens and ink effects like rainbow, galaxy, lava, ocean, gold, silver and many others will be available to Office users on iOS devices.

A new digital pencil will enable users to write or sketch whatever they have in mind. This specific feature can be used with a supported stylus by simply tilting it to do shading.

All three new features mentioned will be available for all three Office apps – Word, Excel, and PowerPoint – but only on iOS devices.
