The next generation program was distributed to testers and Microsoft partners very recently, and obviously someone got a bit carried away and leaked screenshots of the popular business app to the media.
If you don’t have a subscription to Microsoft Office, you will be unable to activate your copy, meaning your program will expire after 5 days.
What’s new in Office 16
- At first glance, the new Office 16 looks pretty much the same as its predecessors, and aside from a few icons, such as the “paste” button, which now seems to be flatter, all included apps, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint look just like the previous version.
- There is also a search box in ribbon to quickly navigate to features.
- The biggest change you can see is the addition of a dark theme that should make Office a bit more eye-friendly when being used during the night.
- There are several themes to choose from, all of which can be selected from the settings screen of your Office installation.
- Just as it happened with the previous testing versions of Office, this new one comes with the typical smiley button in the menu bar, allowing you to quickly submit feedback if you like or dislike specific features.
That’s pretty much it regarding this build of Office 16. Microsoft is ever so close to releasing a public preview of Office 16 for the desktop, and with a touch-version of Office for Windows set to debut sometime next year, it’s safe to assume that we’ll have some awesome touch-based apps to play with soon.
