Microsoft demos Office, PowerPoint apps across PC and smartphone

Operating Systems
[MUSIC] To get a full view of the kinds of things that we're putting on phones and small tablets, and today it's not even a complete view. But to get the full view, I need to talk to you about universal apps. Because we're building a wide family of universal apps that will ro, round out the experience on phones. Small tablets and PCs. And what we're doing is creating a family of apps that will be built in that will give our customers everything they need for modern productivity. So I'm going to show you a series of these apps. I'm going to show them to you on the phone. And the PC, and I want you to think about how they make the experience, rationalized and easy as you go from device to device, and they offer that mobility of experience that Terry was describing. The first one I'm gonna focus on is Office. Word, Excel and Powerpoint will be included in Windows 10 on phones and small tablets, and they're gonna deliver a consistent, highly rich and highly complete office experience on those devices. But I am gonna show you Power Point. And so, once again, you'll see, I open Power Point. It's that familiar Office look, with the recent list, right there. I'm gonna open a very large and complex Power Point presentation, here we go. And I wanna point out that recent document list. It does roam from device to device, from version of office to version of Office. So if I'm using full Win32 Office on my PC, and editing a document in my one drive, or one drive for business. That recent list romes across devices. When I open up this Powerpoint presentation, I wanna show you, once again, here on the bottom of the screen, we brought the familiar Office ribbon right to the phones app bar experience. And I can switch here to transition view, to slide show view or to review view, just as I did on the phone. But I'm not going to do that. Instead I want to show you how great a Powerpoint presentation can look when it's projected using any of the recent phones which have really powerful processors and very fixed parts. In this case, I'm going to pan through this and you'll see, watch the screen, how smooth the animations and transitions are. That's an on slide animation, I'm going to keep going, you'll see the hardware accelerated. Slide transitions and then again a slide animation and once again hardware accelerated transitions slide animations. Our outlook team has been working on a new universal app version of Outlook mail and Outlook calendar which will be on the phone, tablet and PCs. You'll see here's that same code, it's literally the same code written to our universal app platform. I was showing it to you on the phone and here it is on the PC. It looks very similar. On the PC it has this personalizable image, which I've set to my son and I. Let me open the calendar, and you saw on the PC I did this in a familiar way just by clicking the calendar right down there in the bottom, something lots of Outlook users are accustomed to. And here you can see the calendar. It's rich and attractive, it's familiar, it's high performance, I can scroll around all these items. On any device you own, even cross platform devices, phones where you're taking pictures. We have a one drive app and it's built in on Windows devices that uploads your images to one drive. On the PC, we're syncing your images down from one drive to the PC so they're available locally offline and cloud. This photo app. Is aggregating together all of those photos, from all of those devices, and giving you one simple view of your collection. Three more apps I'm gonna show you. I'm gonna go even faster, so you get a sense of overview. The first one is our people app, which we're implementing, again, as a universal app, one time across these devices. It aggregates all the people that you care about across social networks. And it lets you perform quick actions like making a call or sending a message or doing a Skype video call. Next up. Our music experience. Which we are continuing to evolve across all these devices. And what you'll see here is how we're using the cloud to add a song to a playlist. And then it shows up magically on all your devices. That's because in about a month or two months we're gonna add support to our system for you to put your music collection in one drive and have your collection stored in the cloud, so you can make changes to your playlists or to your collection on any device, and they're automatically reflected on all your devices. Next up. I want you to see our maps experience, which starts with some [UNKNOWN] integration. [UNKNOWN] has recognized that traffic is slow. So you can open the maps app on your PC, find an alternate route. Send it to your phone. And then, when you use the turn by turn directions to drive somewhere, and you arrive. You can have Kortana remember where you parked your car, and then, when your event's over, she's there to help you find where you parked. So, that is a quick tour of a, our family of universal apps.
