Microsoft announces new features for Office for Android coming in September
If you're an Office Insider, chances are you will soon receive new features and improvements for Office for Android. All three Office apps (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) have been updated for Insiders with a couple of nifty features that are meant to increase security and further enhance user experience.

For example, with the latest version of Word for Android, you will be able to see where others are working and view changes as they type, which will allow you to work better with your colleagues in real time.

Also, all three Office apps should now be bulletproof when it comes to security, as malicious links in documents, workbooks, and presentations will now be blocked to keep users safer than ever.

If you're frequently using Word on your Android device, then you'll be pleased to know that adding a blank page just got easier. You can now insert a blank page to a document with just one click. Finally, PowerPoint users can now add animations to their slides on their Android devices.

All these new features and improvements are already available for Office Insiders, and are supposed to be made available to everyone in September.
