Microsoft are rolling out new features and changes to the Microsoft 365 services frequently.


Renaming File viewer webpart to 'File and Media'

Among the set of SharePoint web parts – this brings clarity. We are renaming the Files webpart to File and Media to make this webpart inclusive of more file types like videos.

Viva Connections

Microsoft Viva Connections: Available on iPad

Meet your people where they work. And if they work on an iPad, great - you can connect via Viva Connections 'on their iPad.' With the launch of tablet support, coupled with the new desktop experience of Viva Connections and existing mobile capabilities, Viva Connections has a quick time to set up, unified UI and experience across any device.

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge to replace built-in PDF engine with Adobe Acrobat PDF engine

We are natively embedding the Adobe Acrobat PDF engine into the Microsoft Edge built-in PDF reader. With the use of the Adobe Acrobat PDF engine, users will have a unique PDF experience that includes higher fidelity for more accurate colors and graphics, improved performance, strong security for PDF handling, and greater accessibility – including better text selection and read-aloud narration.

Microsoft List

New List Templates with Approvals

We are introducing two new list templates that embed the Approvals app (service) into the Lists experience. With this change, two Microsoft Lists templates appear – specifically Travel Requests with approvals and Content Scheduler with approvals; both bring integration with the Approvals app in Microsoft Teams. You'll see the new list templates within the Create list experience.


OneDrive Web: Favorite/Unfavorite Files

Adding files to Favorites is a great way to mark content of personal importance and can help you get to the content you're looking for more easily. We have made sure that the favorites experience is consistent across Microsoft 365 apps by building on top of the existing pinning and favorites experience. This release will include support for favoriting files from OneDrive web and SharePoint document libraries.

Microsoft Teams

Suggested files in 1:1 Chats

As an extension of suggested replies in 1:1 chats, you can now save time when you need to send a file in a chat by tapping on a "Share file" suggestion. This is another example of where you save time with AI-based file suggestions in chat, especially when the service detects an intent to share. Now, people will be able to respond to their chat message AND attach a file in one click.

Microsoft Words

Send to Kindle

I tested this out to use my Kindle to review an upcoming Message Center post from a colleague. In Word, go to the File > Export > Send documents to Kindle. I signed in with my account and off it went. And voila: appeared on my Kindle within my Library ready to read and review.
