Microsoft Office 2016 Preview is Ready For Your Offices


Microsoft Office for your Office is ready to be your friend. Like Roti, Kapda and Makaan we have an important need for Microsoft Office in our daily Life. Being an Entrepreneur we need Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook more than we need food. So the new features are also very important to be tested.

In this way Microsoft has announced Office 2016. It is also available for Mac with full Retina support, OneDrive and SharePoint integration. They are improving the search and storage footprint and email delivery performance in Outlook along with some improvements to image insertion in Word 2016 and Excel 2016. The following are some more key changes:

  • The Navigation pane in Word will help you to track where you are in a document and move to points of interest. The Dictionary enhances reading and improves understanding. The style pane allows you to visually apply and review styles. (Microsoft Word).
  • In this version of Office, Keyboard shortcuts are consistent across Windows and the Analysis ToolPak includes all the statistical functions you need to do an in-depth analysis of your data. Slicers let you repivot information to explore and share insights. Print improvements include the ability to print to a single PDF file. The Formula Builder allows you to easily leverage the power of Excel formulas. (Microsoft Excel).
  • In Powerpoint With Presenter View you can see the notes accompanying your slide as well as a film strip of future slides. This allows you to focus on your audience while presenting on a second screen. New slide transitions add a wider range of options to create more visual interest in your presentations. The conflict resolution experience allows you to visually compare conflicts, so you can confidently choose the right version to keep. (Microsoft Powerpoint).
In this version you will receive a daily notification from the Office for Mac. Every build will expire roughly 60 days after it's released and the last preview build will continue to function for roughly a month after the official launch.

Microsoft is currently slating general availability for “this summer”. Pricing and packaging details “will show up later”, Wilfrid.

I want to mention here some points
  • Microsoft Office 2016 will not run simultaneously with previous installed versions. After installing the Office 2016, you may notice that InfoPath Designer 2013 has been removed from your list of Office applications.  This is by design, Microsoft is no longer shipping new versions of InfoPath.
