Microsoft had recently announced that it will replace the existing Microsoft Office suite on Windows with a new Microsoft 365 app. While the existing app allows users to access built-in Office apps, the rebranded Microsoft 365 app is reported to provide additional apps, relevant documents, and other useful information for an improved user experience. Microsoft has released an official teaser to showcase the app. Let us take a look at what the redesigned Microsoft 365 app looks like.
Microsoft 365 App Design, New Features
As seen in the video, the new Microsoft app plays with content from all apps, not just those from Microsoft’s suite. Figma, Adobe, and files appear within the “My content” section of the app. All the Microsoft 365 apps are clubbed under the “Apps” section. Additionally, there is a separate section for third-party apps and company apps. We can also see a “Feed” section that includes meetings and content from people you follow.

Furthermore, the Microsoft 365 app separates content into categories, including items that were shared within meetings or by other people. Here are some new features the app offers over the existing Office hub:
- New feed: A new way to keep up with work by showcasing shared files from the people users work with and trending content in a bite-sized card format.
- Apps module: A redesigned interface to access any Microsoft 365 app and related third-party apps. The apps module is now available on mobile for the first time.
- Tagging: A new, intuitive way for users to organize their work independent of where files are stored.
The new Microsoft 365 app will begin rolling out in November 2022. It will arrive as an update to the existing Office app on Windows.
