From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC442107 · Published Oct 4, 2022

Message Summary

We’re happy to announce support for the furigana phonetics feature in Excel Online. We’ve now added support for the feature in Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Hong-Kong locales. Users are now able to view furigana in Excel Online.

When this will happen:

This feature is now available to users.

How this will affect your organization:

When a user selects a range of cells, the furigana ribbon button will be available and will allow you to view existing furigana in cells and interact with them using the new ribbon commands. In addition, it will allow you to show or hide existing furigana and for Japanese it will allow you to choose the furigana type from several options (Hiragana, Katakana Half/Full). The phonetics button will show as disabled if there are no available phonetics in the selected range.
