You will now be able to turn datasets into maps in Excel. This particular feature had been announced in September for Windows PCs.
 
The company also states that 15 percent of data sets are geographically based, hence Excel will recommend a map instead of a chart for data which it is not able to recognize.
 
Given below are the new features available in this new build, as per the official blog:
  • Accessibility built right in into your Office apps: The company has improved the support for TalkBack, your keyboard, and other assistive technology when you’re creating, editing, or presenting your docs.

  •  Box, Egnyte, and ???? now work with Office: Enjoy more flexibility for storage and access to your Office files with Box, Egnyte, and ????.

  • Turn data into maps with Excel: Use the new Maps chart type to transform geographical data into professional looking maps in a few steps to visualize and identify insights, trends, and opportunities.

  • Sharing Notifications for Word, PowerPoint and Excel: You no longer need to keep checking your shared documents, workbooks, and presentations. You will get a notification alert whenever there’s an activity.
