A new viewing experience for Word and PowerPoint file types (.docx & .pptx) is here. Microsoft announced this new experience for files on OneDrive and SharePoint document libraries.
This new viewing experience will enable users to view Word & PowerPoint files instantly.
These files used to show read-only mode in Office Online Experience when clicked on them.
Now, these files will load instantly inline with your files. Just like any other file, such as a PDF, photos or videos, you can view these files in a normal view.
With a new UI, you can focus directly on the content of the file. The edit function is now an open button to make it more easier and convenient.
Now you can share Word and PowerPoint files with the company sharable links to increase your sharing experience.
The new viewing canvas with a fresher look, feel and new design aligns the viewers closer to the modern web experiences across the Office 365 experiences.
Microsoft is rolling our this new feature to First Release Customers.
