Office 2016 for Windows To Launch on September 22
Microsoft announced Office 2016 earlier this year, followed by the release of a bunch of Office versions for various platforms, including iOS, Android and Mac OS. Now it seems that the wait is almost over for Windows users as well, as the company has a release date penciled in for next month.
According to a report from WinFuture, Office 2016 for Windows is set to arrive on 22nd of September, though it would hardly feature any major improvement over the last iteration. The latest version of Office will be available for home and professional users to start off with.
The development team with Office 2016 for Windows seems to have focused more on visual improvements. Microsoft is bringing a few themes to Office; including a new theme that will make the apps look like their iOS, Android and OS X equivalents, along with a dark theme for something a little easier on the eyes.
However, one feature that is worth mentioning is collaborative editing of documents, that allows several people to work on the same document at the same time. The feature is already offered by Google Docs, which helped the search giant win quite some customers.
Moreover, Outlook 2016 will be updated with some improvements to search, attachments and email delivery.
Microsoft has not confirmed the release date as of yet.
