A new Excel feature may not be so exciting for the commoner. But, this new upcoming feature will without a doubt be ground-breaking for people who have to tirelessly draft up spreadsheets daily, going through each cell and entering the designated data.

AI-Powered Scanning

On Friday, Microsoft announced a new feature for the Excel Android App. The new feature will allow Excel users to convert a picture of data on a printed sheet to an editable table in the app. Microsoft is allegedly using artificial intelligence to implement this feature.

Microsoft has also given us a video demonstration as we can see in the tweet above.

The feature is currently only available to Microsoft 365 users on Android. However, the feature will soon roll out to iOS users as well. You can read more about the feature on Microsoft’s website.

Back in September 2018, Microsoft also announced another “AI-powered insights service” called Ideas. This feature was being built to help users identify patterns in their data-set in Excel and to suggest users tips and ideas when creating documents in Office apps. Microsoft has not given us an update on the feature yet but hopefully, it will be implemented soon as Microsoft promised.
