Office 2016 is now Available

Tuesday, October 6, 2015
Microsoft have released Office 2016 for both PC and Mac, if you are an Office 365 subscriber you are entitled to a free upgrade.

All Office 365 Business and Business Premium customers will receive automatic update notifications later this calendar year. But if you wish to get the update before this we can force the installation manually.

If you do not have an Office 365 subscription one-time purchase options are available for both the Windows and Mac versions of Office 2016.

Office 2016 includes all new versions of Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access and OneNote.


New Features in 2016

Work together on documents See others' edits with coauthoring in Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Improved version history lets you refer back to snapshots of a document during the editing process.

Simplified sharing Share right from your document with a click of a button. Or use the new modern attachments in Outlook—attach files from OneDrive and automatically configure permission without leaving Outlook.

Office across all your devices Review, edit, analyze, and present your Office 2016 documents across any of your devices—from your PC or Mac to your Windows, Apple®, and Android™ phones and tablets.

Find commands with Tell Me Simply tell Word, Excel, or PowerPoint what you want to do, and Tell Me will guide you to the command.

Office apps optimized for touch Use touch for reading, editing, zooming, and navigation. Write notes or make annotations using digital ink.

Bring it all together with OneDrive cloud storage Easily save to your cloud storage and switch from one device to the next without missing a beat. Office apps pick up right where you left off, regardless of the device you were using.
