Microsoft Office 2016 is out now!

Wondering if you should upgrade to Office 2016?

This video highlights the top reasons.

The top 7 reasons to upgrade.

1. Built for collaboration

You can share your document in real-time from within the app. You can also see who has access and who is currently working with it. As you work with others in a document, see where they are working and view their edits as they happen. In Word, this is even better with real-time typing.

2. Share Links instead of Files in Outlook

Share a document by email from OneDrive or SharePoint. Rather than being sent as an attachment, a link to your document is sent. So, instead of everyone having a separate copy of the file, there is only one version of the file. If you update it, all recipients will see those updates immediately without you needing to resend the file.

3. Standard User Experience

New computers have started to ship with Office 2016. Rather than having a mix of different versions of Office in your organization, you can create consistency by upgrading existing computers to Office 2016.

4. Tell Me

Simply type what you want to do in the app using your own words, and then Tell Me will guide you through how to do it, as well as offer additional suggestions and resources.

5. New Chart Types

Visualise data and highlight properties of your data with several new chart types: Treemap, Waterfall, Pareto, Histogram, Box and Whisker, and Sunburst.

6. Easier ways to get data into Excel

Excel includes a new feature called Get & Transform, which provides fast, easy data gathering and shaping capabilities. Get & Transform enables you to connect, combine, and refine data sources.

7. Smart Lookup in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook

Fact-check or explore terms in your documents with Smart Lookup. Simply highlight terms in your document and use this feature to bring in search results from the web right into the app.
