At some point in your life, you’ve been forced to send a massive file as an email attachment, wondering all the while if it will end up being too big to get through. Microsoft’s recent Office 365 updates include a feature to address that problem.
Microsoft continually updates Office 365, and the company’s November updates include a new feature that allows users to upload a file to OneDrive at the time they’re writing an email. Furthermore, collaborative editing has arrived on PowerPoint, and Microsoft has begun to send notifications to your phone when documents are being worked on by your coworkers.
Why this matters: The key, of course, is that the updates apply to Office 365, the subscription service that provides access to constantly improving builds of the Office apps. To justify annual renewals, Microsoft does two things: adds new features on a regular basis, and lets consumers know about them.
