Retirement: OneNote Learning Tools COM Add-in

We will be retiring the old OneNote Learning Tools COM Add-in feature beginning on March 31st, 2022. Users who currently have the Learning Tools Add-in installed on OneNote 2013 or OneNote 2016 will still be able to use it, but users or IT Admins will no longer be able to download new copies. In addition to this, any bugs will not be fixed, and we will no longer offer support for the old COM Add-in after March 31st, 2022.

Note: Instead we recommend the utilization of the new built-in Immersive Reader in OneNote Desktop that is part of Office 365, which is where we will continue to invest our development resources. We will also be adding built-in Dictation to OneNote Desktop in Office 365 later in 2022.

Create Videos on Office Mobile

Office Mobile is a content hub which houses a bunch of content types – from your favorite Word, Excel, PowerPoint to Lens, Forms, PDFs, and now very recently, Videos. In CY21Q3, we announced an update which saw Stream video player integrated inside Office Mobile. This allowed users to access and play videos on their professional network with ease, be it Teams Meetings Recordings, demos or tutorials sitting on your OneDrive for Business. This was received well by our customers, to have their videos accessible right from one Office app. Now it is time to take this one step forward – Introducing Video Creation on Office Mobile.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82197.
