Microsoft demos new, touch-focused Office apps, coming to PCs, tablets and phones

Microsoft will be releasing a redesigned version of Office which has a focus on touchscreens. While it's still fairly early, Microsoft demonstrated the new PowerPoint application during their Build keynote. The applications will be available for Windows PCs, tablets, and Windows Phone. The new apps have been built using DirectX, and Microsoft has been focusing on opening documents smoothly on all devices in full quality.

Office will feature unlimited Undo and Redo, with all versions automatically saving to OneDrive. Microsoft did not demo new versions of Word or Excel, and no release date has been announced.
