The company claimed that these features will help users be more productive at their everyday tasks. The feature, called "Insert Data from Picture", allows anyone to easily convert analogue data into an Excel spreadsheet with just a click.

"Insert Data from Picture" is starting to show up Monday on some Android Excel apps.

The feature is not available for the free version of Excel for Android, instead, it is now been made available to Office 365 subscribers. "Excel's powerful AI engine will process the image and convert it to a table", Microsoft wrote in its support page.

On release, the feature is expected to be cross-platform, allowing Microsoft to continue emphasising that the platform is not necessarily operating system (OS) based and that the software users could choose to run on any device totally irrespective of the OS it's running on, Forbes added.

While not something everyone will use daily, being able to snap a shot of a table in a book or other source and then having it appear as data in a spreadsheet is something that could prove very useful to some.

Microsoft teased this feature on Twitter and while it is already rolling out for the Android version of Microsoft Excel, the iOS version will get the feature soon. Microsoft's Authenticator app will now deliver push notifications for important alerts to address leaks and security breaches. That will work with personal accounts, such as outlook.com, and will let users know when their password is changed or other activity flags a security alert. Users need to update to the latest version to access the new feature.
