Delve apps released

Microsoft has released mobile Delve apps for Android and iOS. These apps allow you to view your Office 365 Delve information on the go.

Delve is an Office 365 technology that surfaces relevant information based on your interactions with others in you business and Office 365 services like SharePoint, Exchange, Lync, Yammer and so on. It uses signals created these to determine what is the most relevant information to you.

If you want to know more about what Delve is take a look at my previous post:

Delve rolling out now

Unfortunately, it seems that here in Australia we’ll need to wait a few weeks before we can use the apps as the roll out is only in the US at the moment but is coming to other countries ‘soon’.

The Delve service has also added the ability to ‘blog’:

“The new tool allows you to both edit and view pages from your mobile device, auto-saving as you go.  It also provides the ability to post pages directly to Yammer, automatically creating friendly, readable URLs. And because it’s integrated across Office 365, it’s easy to embed documents inline from OneDrive for Business, videos from Office 365 Video, even photos from your desktop. And finally, it’s fast, modern and ready-to-go.”
