v.1.2 Just Released! No, not Office. The new Office Blog phone app!

Office Blog Windows Phone AppKeep up with our latest posts by downloading our recently updated Office Blog phone app for Windows Phones. It automatically shows you the headlines for any new posts we publish.

There’s another really good reason to get the updated app:  we just added four new blogs to coincide with releasing the Customer Preview of the next version of Office.


Here are the blogs we added:

  • Office Next:  A place where you can hear from the engineers who are building the new Office. They’ll discuss the improvements we’re making, the designs we’re choosing, and the data and feedback that informs our decisions.
  • Office News- The home for Microsoft Office announcements! Over the next several months, this is the place where we’ll be sharing news related to the Microsoft Office Division.
  • Visio & Project-These two blogs are where you can learn about the new Visio and Project, and how-to information about the current version.

The Office Blog app is a quick and free download if you don’t have the app already. If you already have it, you’ll see an option to update it in the Marketplace. Try it out!

Another way to stay in touch

A really easy way to stay current is to subscribe to one of our RSS feeds. Each Office app blog has one and so does the Office Blog home page. If you subscribe to the latter, you’ll get the most important posts from across the blogs. If you want to keep up with the latest news and technical information about a specific app, sign up for its RSS feed.

Subscribing is pretty simple- just click the Subscribe button in the upper-right corner on the Blog home page or any page on an app blog: 


Once you start tuning to us, we’d love to start tuning in to what you think. Post comments on our blogs or check out our Microsoft Office Facebook page.
