Excel: Insert data from picture.

Note: Insert data from picture is one of several beta features, and currently only available to a portion of Office Insiders at this time. We’ll continue to optimize these features over the next several months. When they’re ready, we’ll release them to all Office Insiders, and Office 365 subscribers.    

Open Excel on your phone or tablet and tap the Insert data from picture button to get started
