What is the new Office? Office 2016 is the latest addition to Office 365, a subscription service that helps make it easier than ever for people to do their best work, together. The new Office is made for collaboration and teamwork. I’ve highlighted a few new items below but there is much more to be excited about.
- Office 2016 is built for teamwork with co-authoring and collaboration across our native clients, starting in Word 2016, with other big advances in collaboration coming throughout the year Office 365 Groups insights and discovery in Office Delve is on the roadmap for delivery yet this year.
- Office 2016 works for you with our new charts and forecasting. Even more new charts, formulas, connectors and other Excel capabilities will be delivered throughout the year.
- Office 2016 is perfect on Windows 10! Cortana, your personal assistant, becomes even more valuable as she provides insights from Office. This will start to allow Cortana to unlock helpful scenarios, like retrieving your documents, preparing for meetings and more.
Having used the preview of Office 2016 for a while now, I can say that I am truly excited about this new release. I am confident that once you use Office 2016 you will be excited with the features and capabilities as well.
