Microsoft announced a couple of AI-focused updates for its OneDrive and SharePoint users with an Office 365 subscription that bring more machine learning smarts to the company’s file storage services. All of these features will launch at some point later this year.
The highlight of these announcements is that starting later this year, both services will get automated transcription services for video and audio files. Microsoft says this new service will handle the transcription automatically and then display the transcript as you’re watching the video.
Other updates the company today announced include a new file view for OneDrive and Office.com that will recommend files to you by looking at what you’ve been working on lately across the Microsoft 365 and making an educated guess as to what you’ll likely want to work on now.
