If you spend a lot of time working with Microsoft’s suite of Office apps, you’re likely familiar with the company’s support for Office add-ins, plugins that allow developers to brings news tools and features to standard Office programs. These can be anything from document management systems, to collections of shortcuts, to industry-specific projects that make it easier to work with advanced notation. At its Build conference today, Microsoft is showcasing some expanded add-in support coming with Office 2016, including the ability for add-ins to exist across platforms.

Considering how Office has grown from local PC software, to a cloud service, and now an app for mobile platforms, that’s hugely important to keeping add-ins relevant. Microsoft demonstrated one of these add-ins functioning the same with Excel Online as it did with the Office iPad app.

The company also showed off some add-ins from its software partners, including one for Outlook that helps with scheduling Uber rides.
