The worldwide release of Office 2016 has been started by Microsoft. The latest Office 2016 delivers new versions of the Office desktop apps for Windows, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Project, Visio and Access. In fact, these apps are the latest addition to Office 365, company’s cloud-based subscription service which helps people do their best work, together.
The pairing of Office 365 and Windows 10 provides a complete solution for getting things done, including Windows Hello’s password-free login. Windows Hello logs users into Windows and Office 365 in one simple step. Additionally, the new Office 2016 has security features important for businesses and is a new model for delivery, with more frequent updates, new features and improvements for subscribers.
At the same time, the Office 2016 apps run beautifully on the best Windows ever, including the new Sway for Windows 10 to create shareable, interactive stories which look great on any screen. Office Mobile apps on Windows 10 empower on-the-go productivity, and work with Continuum2 so users can use their phone like a PC.
Satya Nadella, chief executive officer of Microsoft, writes about the new Office on the Official Microsoft Blog, “The way people work has changed dramatically, and that’s why Microsoft is focused on reinventing productivity and business processes for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and these latest innovations take another big step forward in transforming Office from a familiar set of individual productivity apps to a connected set of apps and services designed for modern working, collaboration and teamwork.”
