Following the first developer previews of the brand new Office 2016, Microsoft has today made available the public preview for the first time. Office 2016 is the next version of Microsoft's renowned desktop software, not to be confused with the all-new touch office apps coming with Windows 10 for phones and small tablets.
"In March we introduced an IT Pro and Developer Preview for the 2016 release of our Office desktop apps on Windows, and now—as a next step—we're ready to take feedback from a broader audience. Today we're expanding the Office 2016 Preview, making it available to Office users everywhere in preparation for general availability in Fall 2015.
Office 2016 previewers will get an early look at the next release of Office on Windows desktop, but more importantly they'll help to shape and improve the future of Office. Visit the Office 2016 Preview site to learn more about the Preview program and if it's right for you."
Office 2016 marks a major shift in the desktop experience, as Microsoft is bringing some of its online based features right in such as real-time collaboration. Previously this was possible through use of Office Online, but with Office 2016 there's no need.
That is but one of the many new offerings inside Office 2016, so if you're interested, testing it out is really easy. Head on over to the Office 2016 preview page and simply follow the instructions. For more on the latest release, check out the source link below.
