The mobile version of Microsoft Excel has just added the function of capturing spreadsheets and tables with the help of the smartphone camera. This mode, available on Android phones, can now be used on iPhone models and allows you to create an Excel document with data available in a table printed on a sheet, in a document or book.

In this way, the version of Excel for iOS and Android uses artificial intelligence to detect a table in a captured image and complements the task by applying the optical character recognition system (OCR).

This new modality of image recognition, known as Insert data from an image, allows the Excel app to facilitate the creation of tables without the need to enter the data manually and will be available to Office 365 users, the service of the Microsoft Office suite subscription. Previously, these changes were added to the use of these capture techniques in Office Lens and the mobile version of Word, such as the creation of editable text files based on PDF or the scanning of documents based on the employment of artificial intelligence systems next to the smartphone camera.

In the case of Excel, the improvement affects the version available on iOS and Android. It provides a significant improvement since now the app allows scanning images of physical spreadsheets and automatically converting those images into spreadsheets or digital Excel files.

The application allows this option without having to leave it. Just open the camera mode and take a picture of the sheet you want to mark. It is a process similar to that of document scanning applications since it allows you to later cut the area or review the photo before importing it. This function supports use in up to 21 languages.
