Microsoft reveals a brand new Office 2016


Integrated into Microsoft’s cloud-based subscription service, Office 365 has enabled students, educators and businesses with the tools to be productive. Now available for PCs, Macs, tablets and phones, Office 2016 will set to deliver a massive revamp to their existing products – Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Project, Visio and Access.

A key advantage of being on the cloud is definitely being able to access your files no matter where you are (considering you have a stable internet connection), and as said by Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia – “Office 2016 marks a big step forward from a familiar set of individual productivity apps to a connected set of apps and services designed for modern working, collaboration and teamwork”. True enough, this changes the way we can collaborate, as information can now be stored in the cloud, letting you edit and make changes as needed.

These same advancements now allow Office 365 subscribers to always get their software up-to-date and have fully functional apps across their devices. Seen as a great companion to Windows 10, the latest Sway feature lets you create interactive shareable content and plaster them on any screen, yet keeping it looking pristine. Make use of Windows Hello, Continuum and Cortana for biometric recognition, cross platform accessibility and daily scheduling for meetings.


Teamwork themed:

You can now share and co-author files on Word, PowerPoint and OneNote; real-time typing in Word to allow you to monitor instantaneous changes as it happens
Skype integration within Office programs that enable you to IM, screen share, talk or video chat at the same time while editing documents
Office 365 works together with the Outlook 2016 client, making mobile devices available through Outlook Groups

How it works for you:

New charts, forecasting on excel
PowerPoint is easier to use for design and delivering presentations
Tell Me helps you by letting you know which Office features and commands you’re looking for
Smart Lookup lets you search for information on the net in the Office application itself.
