Microsoft Create – Everything We Know So Far

Microsoft Create is a new website that brings the familiar Office 365 productivity apps and creative apps like Designer and Clipchamp under one umbrella. The website has free templates for PowerPoint, Word, Excel, etc., that you can use right away. Create also has social media templates for Designer, which cannot be used as of now since, at the time of writing this post, Designer is yet to be released.

Apart from this, the website doesn’t offer much, which may be why it hasn’t created any buzz. None of the social media templates on Create can be used. It would have been better if they launched Create along with Designer because, as of now, this feels like unnecessary hype. Only the Office 365 templates are usable but limited in number. Not to mention that there are tons of other websites that provide thousands of free templates.

Once Designer gets a release date, we’ll be able to check out all the features Create fully has to offer and update this article.

  • Microsoft Create brings all Microsoft content creation tools under one umbrella.
  • It has many templates for PowerPoint, Excel, Word, etc. that you can use right away.
  • Microsoft Create also offers many video templates for Clipchamp, Microsoft’s video editing tool.
  • It also contains many types of social media templates for TikTok, Instagram, etc. that should work with Microsoft Designer.
  • The focus is on content creators. This feels more creative compared to the usual Office 365 productivity apps we’re used to.
