Microsoft Office Mobile Insider Preview Build 17.7766, part of January Update has released with following new features and updates.

In another update released to Outlook.com, now the Skype client includes an option to disable notification sounds. The changes made to notification sound will reflect in other online services as well, for instance, if you disable notification sounds in Outlook.com, the changes will take effect in OneDrive.com as well.

Here is how to disable notification sounds: “Open Outlook.com (or OneDrive.com), then click on Skype at the top (the speech bubble icon), also now click the settings icon at the bottom right corner, and under the Notifications pane, turn the ‘Sound’ toggle off.”

What's new in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint:

  • Make your pictures pop: Add Shadow and Reflection to enhance pictures in your documents, workbooks, and presentations.
  • Use Your pen to select and change objects: Now, you can use the Surface pen in Word to grab object handles to resize, rotate, move, and more.
  • Open more files: You can now open many more types of files in Excel. For example, you can open files that contain form controls.
What's new in OneNote
  • Notes with style: Keep a consistent look across your notes when you use built-in styles for headings, quotes, code, and more.
  • Insert space: Your page is full of notes, but you can add extra space in the left margin or the middle of the page with the magical Insert Space tool.
  • OneNote Insider Build 17.7766 Insert Space
  • Format painter: Magically copy your bold, italic, underlined, purple, 18 point, Lucida Sans formatting from one heading to another. Think of the time you'll save!
  • Choose how you paste: When you paste, you can keep the original formatting, paste just the text, or paste as an image.
  • Background pictures: Set a picture as the background of your notes so you can type right over it. This allows you to type over forms, or annotate pictures.
  • Open multiple notebooks: Quickly open multiple notebooks to get to your content faster. Just tap the notebooks you want and open them all at once, rather than one-by-one.
  • Show or hide authors: See other authors' initials next to their changes in a shared workbook, or hide the initials for a cleaner look.
  • To check or not to check: Turn off the Check Spelling option when you just don't need it.
