CONVERT PHOTOS OF TABLES INTO SPREADSHEET DATA WITH EXCEL MOBILE


Very soon you will see a major new feature update to Excel Mobile on iOS and Android that will allow users to take photos of tables and then import them into a spreadsheet on their mobile device.

How many times have we given a worksheet with a table image or seen a table in a textbook or magazine with valuable data that we wished we could use, edit, or build upon. Soon you will be able to accomplish this by leveraging a new feature
also known as the “Insert Data From Picture” which was first announced last September during Microsofts IGNITE Conference.

The magic behind such innovation is partly due to how Microsoft is leveraging a mix of image recognition and artificial intelligence to make this feature a reality. We should expect to be seeing this and other new features roll out on Android first and shortly after on IOS.
