plays information about it, which you can insert into the document or use
in other ways.
Using an app in a document
Examples of Apps for Office include dictionaries and reference works, cal-
culators, templates and forms, file format converters, and news. Apps for
Office are available only online from the Microsoft Office Store. Many of
them cost nothing to install and use; others are paid products. New Apps
for Office are frequently added to the Office Store.
Because the app is stored on a server in the cloud, it’s available to you
anywhere that you can log on to your Microsoft Account.
