New Useful A.I. Tools in Office 365
Tool 1: “Insert Data from Picture”
The first A.I. feature in Excel is a perfect example of Microsoft trying to bridge the gap between mobile and desktop.
“Insert Data from Picture” feature in the Excel mobile app helps you import analog data. With this feature. you can easily grab data in a table from a physical piece of paper. You can thus convert financial spreadsheets, work schedules, task lists, timetables, and so on into a digital format in Excel. Insert Data from Picture supports 21 languages on Android and iOS.
Tool 2: “Play My Emails”
“Play My Emails” in Outlook uses Cortana to help you stay on top of your inbox, especially when you’re on the go. Microsoft wants Cortana to be your personal productivity assistant and give you time back in your day. Cortana reads out your new emails intelligently, meaning rather than reading every detail, it summarizes and surfaces information like the sender, time sent, and email contents. Play My Emails is currently available in Outlook for iOS in the U.S., with availability for Android in the works.
