At its annual Ignite event this year, Microsoft announced a set of new tools for creators, one of the most exciting being a new web platform, Microsoft Create. And less than a month after its announcement, Microsoft officially launched a preview of the website, giving users access to creative apps and services available as part of their Microsoft 365 subscription.
Microsoft Create, templates to revolutionize social networks
Microsoft describes Create as “the ultimate launch pad for creators” for making creative videos, graphic design documents, presentations and more. The Redmond-based giant believes its professionally designed templates and content creation apps will help anyone create something “inspiring,” and you don’t need any design experience to do it.
To get started, you can now visit the Microsoft Create website and get creative with making presentations, social media video posts, printed birthday cards, and more. All templates are fully customizable and organized by social media platform (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, etc.). We can also organize it by theme (birthdays, budgets or brochures, for example).
Since the website is in beta, don’t expect it to be perfect. As Microsoft pointed out, there are currently some limitations. The website is only available in English and some templates require registration to customize them. Thus obtaining early access to Microsoft Designer.
Microsoft has not provided any information on when the Microsoft Create website will exit preview. The first tests we have been able to do are very interesting. We’ll see how Microsoft improves on this new platform over time, but the inclusion of Designer and ClipChamp looks spectacular. We will see if this new attempt by Microsoft has the expected success or if it has the same success as Remix 3D.
