This feature will completely eliminate the manual input of data.
The company Microsoft talked about the interesting function “Insert data from the image” (Insert Data from Picture), which appears in the mobile version of Excel. With its help, any table on paper can be translated into electronic format. To do this, it will only be enough to take a picture of it and highlight it in the picture.
The function automatically recognizes all symbols and cells, converting a simple photo into a fully editable Excel spreadsheet. After scanning, both variants can be compared by comparing the values. Even if the frame turned out to be blurry and some numbers were read incorrectly, the edits can be made manually.
In the test mode, the feature will soon be available to all Android users registered in the Office 365 Insiders pre-evaluation program. After all the tests, it should appear in the standard version of Excel in the store Google Play.
Also recall that the other day Microsoft announced the release of a package of office programs Office 2019 for Windows and macOS. It is designed for all users without restrictions and includes the innovations that have appeared in the cloud product over the past three years.
