Along with a technical preview of Windows 9, which is scheduled to be announced on September 30, Microsoft is allegedly testing an Office Technical Preview. According to The Verge, the software maker has been sending out preview builds of the upcoming version of Office to partners and testers.
One of the new additions in Office 16 is the "Tell Me" helper utility that made its debut in the Office Online apps. From the screenshots, it looks like Microsoft is integrating the feature as a search box which sits at the top of a document in Word.
Another interesting addition is a dark theme, which will be offered alongside light gray, dark gray, and white. The default theme will still be white, but for users seeking an alternative that is easier on the eyes, there is the dark theme.
Other feature additions include automatic image rotation, which allows Microsoft to access an image's metadata to automatically fix orientation. Users will still be able to manually rotate images should the need arise. Outlook is also said to get new feature additions, with users getting the ability to download 1 day, 3 days, 7 days, or 14 days of email.
