Microsoft today has rolled out updates to its trio of Office apps including Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. The updates bump each app to version 1.12 and while relatively minor, include a new feature that will be significantly useful for the Microsoft Office power users out there…

The updates improve integration with Microsoft’s Outlook email app across all three Office apps. With today’s updates, users of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel can now directly send a document from their respective Office app as an Outlook email attachment and easily return back to the Office app. Users can also now edit documents from any of the three Office apps directly in Outlook, making it easy to quickly edit and send a file back to the initial source.

Microsoft Word for iOS, in addition to the improved Outlook integration features, also includes a new, quicker way to change case. The full changelog is below and the Word, PowerPoint, and Excel updates are available on the App Store now.

What’s New in Version 1.12

  • Send with Outlook: send a spreadsheet, presentation, or document as an Outlook email attachment and return to Excel
  • Integration with Outlook: edit a spreadsheet, presentation, or document attached to an Outlook email message. When you’re done, the updated spreadsheet will be attached to a new email message, ready to send.
  • In Word: Change case: quickly change selected text to uppercase, lowercase, sentence case, and more.
