New Features Coming to Box!
We hope you are all enjoying your secure Box cloud storage! We’re adding some new features to make your Box experience even better.
Office 365 Integration
Soon you will be able to use Box for Office Online to collaborate with others in real-time in Microsoft applications, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You can also open files you have stored in Box directly into Microsoft Office applications using the Box for Office feature.
Mobile File Editing
You can already view files on Android and iOS devices using the Box for EMM mobile app, and soon you will be able to edit them, too! You can make edits to your files on-the-go using corresponding Microsoft Office mobile applications.
