Merge Cells: Add the option to merge cells within a table

There is currently no option to merge cells within a table that has been inserted into a Word document in the online version of Word. Can this option please be included?

    This is so frustrating - have to use this as University course and access easily for tutors. No merge!!!!!!

    Much wanted feature indeed, especially split cell! To be fair in Google docs you can merge cells, but you cannot split :/

    can't believe I can't merge cells. Such a basic requirement Have just started using Word online as that is what my work uses. Arrgh - I want to go back to Google Docs!

    this is silly - I have a 100+ staff suffering from this issue, we're having to move away from word online now because of this

    Not only the option to merge cells, but also the option to add new rows with merged cells. Rather disappointing that such a basic feature does not exist and has to be requested.

    lmfao how is this possible in 2018? Microsoft this is why people literally roll their eyes when I tell them my office uses you instead of google

    Definitely, Google is light-years ahead of Microsoft in cloud apps. Unfortunately, for work reasons, I am forced to use those garbage cloud apps from MS. Nothing in the world is so limited and has so many bugs like those MS creepy things. "Merge cells" is one of the most important things for text editing nowadays.

    i work for a Federation with several schools, one has asked us to use Word Online so several can edit one document, they use tables heavily - until this is fixed i'll be pointing them to google docs!

    Yes, ridiculous! Why is Word Online always like eight years behind Google Docs?
