Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows Goes Into Public Preview
During the enterprise Ignite event in Chicago, software giant Microsoft revealed a new public preview for its Windows Office 2016. The company also shared a bit more about the feature of the new Office software.
The Office 2016 went into a limited tech-preview in April but is now available to anyone who owns MS Office on a Windows PC.
The full version of the software will start rolling out this Fall.
Microsoft Office users are able to use collaborative co-editing features in Office Online; the feature is now also available to Office users on Desktop PCs. All thanks to Office 2016.
Users of Office 16 will be able to edit and work on the same document at the same time, and see updates from other users in real-time.
Microsoft wants to blur the lines between cloud and desktops by allowing users to sync documents between these platforms using their desktop.
So how will this cloud integration help users? Well, users working on a document in Word, PowerPoint or Excel can leave their work and pick it up where they left-off on any other device.
User of Mac don’t need to worry as Microsoft also revealed Office 2016 for Mac, which is available to download as a preview free of cost.
