Updated Office Lens can now save photos as Word or PowerPoint files

Office Lens for Windows Phone has just been updated. Today's update to Office Lens adds a few new features that make creating notes from photos even easier. With Office Lens you can save photos of whiteboards and docs to OneNote, but today's update allows you to create Word and PowerPoint files from those images as well!

Here's what's new in version 1.1.3306.0 of Office Lens:

  • Your pictures can be converted to Word or PowerPoint files and saved to OneDrive.
  • For Word files, the document layout is preserved and the text in your picture is converted into editable text.
  • For PowerPoint files, handwritten strokes are transformed into drawing objects that can be recolored and edited. You can also remove the background of drawings.
  • Bug fixes: Now Office Lens is more stable
