Microsoft Word, Excel, And PowerPoint For Android Get New 'Tell Me' Search

The new 'Tell Me' feature helps guide users through less familiar features - and there are other new goodies too

Most of us are pretty familiar with Microsoft office tools, on desktop anyway. But there are always a few functions and features that you either forget - or just plain don't how - to use. Before now, every time you needed to know how to do something, you probably nipped out to Google it, or maybe asked a friend or colleague. From now on, that won't be necessary.

Microsoft has just released a new update for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Android, introducing its brand new Tell Me helper.

Tell Me is essentially like a search box with a few predictive tricks, which allows users to simply type what they want to do in the app using their own words, to get guidance through the process, help finding the less obvious features, and some additional resources too.

Activating the Tell Me tool is simple: just tap the light bulb icon in the upper right corner. The interface should automatically open the Tell Me search box, then all one has to do is start typing.

In addition to Tell Me, Microsoft has also updated the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps with some extra goodies:

Word:

  • Merge and split cells: You can now merge cells to make a heading span across columns, or split cells to show the right level of details
  • Reply with your edited document: No extra steps for editing an attachment and sending it back on the same thread. Just open Outlook from Word and reply

Excel:

  • Copy an entire worksheet: No need to start from scratch! Get a worksheet set up just the way you line, and then duplicate it
  • Reply with your edited spreadsheet: No extra steps for editing an attachment and sending it back on the same thread. Just open Outlook from Excel and reply

PowerPoint:

  • Reply with your edited presentation: No extra steps for editing an attachment and sending it back on the same thread. Just open Outlook from PowerPoint and reply
