Yesterday Microsoft announced Office 2016 availability for public preview. Details and a link to the Office 2016 Preview site are in this blog article.
Over the last 12 months, we’ve transformed Office from a suite of desktop applications to a complete, cross-platform, cross-device solution for getting work done. We’ve expanded the Office footprint to iPad and Android tablets. We’ve upgraded Office experiences on the Mac, the iPhone and on the web. We’ve even added new apps to the Office family with Sway and Office Lens. All designed to keep your work moving, everywhere. But that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten where we came from. While you’ve seen us focus on tuning Office for different platforms over the last year, make no mistake, Office on Windows desktop is central to our strategy.
This version introduces some exciting new Office features:
- Anywhere Document authoring
- Real-time collaboration
- Smart Applications
- Faster and easier data analysis
All in all this looks like an exciting advance in Office technology.
