Leaked screenshots from latest Office 2016 build reveals new colorful theme

The Office 2016 Consumer Tech Preview is well under way and today we're looking at some leaked screenshots from a new build. Just in case you weren't tired of leaks already, there aren't any Earth-shattering changes in 16.0.3823.1005, but there is a new theme setting.

The new look brings the suite in line with the same Office package on other platforms. As one can see from the screenshot shared above, there's a new "Colorful" look for the bundled apps, each sporting different colored header bars (just above the ribbon menu) depending on the apps themselves. Green for Excel. Blue for Word.

Microsoft will also be bundling a dark theme for Office 2016, which is set to be released later this year.
