Office 2016 Mac Preview is available!

Office 2016 for Mac is the traditional Office that you know and love, but with a bunch of improvements! The new Office 2016 for Mac includes updated versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. We’ve modernized the user experience and made it easier to get things done. The redesigned ribbon intuitively organises features so you can quickly find what you need. A refreshed task pane interface makes positioning, resizing, or rotating graphics easy so you can create exactly the layout you want. And new themes and styles help you pull it all together to produce stunning, professional documents.

Office 2016 for Mac is powered by the cloud so you can access your documents on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint at anytime, anywhere and on any device.



It's been updated to take advantage of the unique features of the Mac - the new apps offer full retina display support with thousands of retina-optimized graphics, full screen view for native immersive experiences, and even little Mac affordances like scroll bounce.


While there are too many new features to cover here, here's a quick overview of a few of the highlights:

  • A navigation pane helps you to easily manage your document's structure and efficiently navigate to points of interest

  • Present your ideas more effectively using PowerPoint's new Presenter View. It's like a mission control for your presentation - displaying the current slide, the next slide, your notes, and a timer

  • Manage your email using Outlook for Mac with conversation view which automatically organises your inbox around threaded conversations so you will never have to hunt for related messages again!
