Microsoft has announced that Office 2016 (with the new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote) for Mac is now available in 139 countries and 16 languages. Mac users will encounter the modernized Office experience and the integration of Mac capabilities like Full Screen view and Multi-Touch gestures. With full Retina display support, Office documents also look sharper and more vibrant.
Office for Mac is cloud-connected, so users can get to the documents recently used on other devices and pick up where they left off. New, built-in document sharing tools make it easy to invite teammates to work on a document together. Office for Mac offers compatibility with Office on PCs, tablets, phones and online. Word’s writing and reviewing tools make it easy to create documents. The new Design tab lets users apply designer-quality layouts, colors and fonts throughout the document. Users can also work on the same document simultaneously with teammates and use threaded comments to have a conversation right next to the corresponding text.
The new Excel for Mac helps users visualize information by recommending charts best suited for the data with chart previews. Familiar keyboard shortcuts, autocomplete and an improved formula builder save time when creating spreadsheets or entering data. For deeper analysis, new PivotTable Slicers help filter large volumes of data and discover patterns.
PowerPoint’s improved Presenter View gives full control when presenting by showing the current slide, next slide, speaker notes and a timer on the Mac screen, while the audience only sees the presentation on the big screen. The new animation pane helps users design and fine-tune animations, and the latest set of slide transitions add polish to presentations.
The new Outlook for Mac has push mail support so the inbox is always up-to-date. The improved conversation view automatically organizes the inbox around threaded conversations, so users won’t have to hunt for related messages. And the new message preview shows the first sentence of an email just below the subject line so users can quickly decide if they want to read it now or come back later.
OneNote is the newest addition to Office for Mac. Users can capture ideas in digital notebooks and access them on any device. Find things quickly with the OneNote search engine that tracks tags, indexes typed notes, and recognizes text in images and handwritten notes. Bold, italicize, underline or highlight notes, insert files, pictures and tables and organize notes however one wants. Users can also share notebooks with friends, family or colleagues so everyone can work together on travel plans, household tasks or work projects.
