What’s new in the Office 2016 apps

Working together just got easier

Office 2016 makes it easier to share documents and work with others at the same time.

Work together on documents

See others’ edits with coauthoring in Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Improved version history lets you refer back to snapshots of a document during the editing process.

Simplified sharing

Share right from your document with a click of a button. Or use the new modern attachments in Outlook—attach files from OneDrive and automatically configure permission without leaving Outlook.

Office across all your devices

Review, edit, analyze, and present your Office 2016 documents across any of your devices—from your PC or Mac to your Windows, Apple®, and Android™ phones and tablets.

Office works for you

Stay on task with Office 2016 with new, faster ways to achieve the results you want.

Find commands with Tell Me

Simply tell Word, Excel, or PowerPoint what you want to do, and Tell Me will guide you to the command.

Fact-check with Bing-powered Smart Lookup

Smart Lookup uses terms you highlight and other contextual information in the document to deliver search results from the web, all within the document.

Fewer clicks to Insights

Use one-click forecasting to quickly turn your historical data into an analysis of future trends. New charts help you visualize complex data.

Office moves with you

From work to your favorite café, stay connected to what’s important—friends, family, and projects across all of your devices.

Office apps optimized for touch

Use touch for reading, editing, zooming, and navigation. Write notes or make annotations using digital ink.

Bring it all together with OneDrive cloud storage

Easily save to your cloud storage and switch from one device to the next without missing a beat. Office apps pick up right where you left off, regardless of the device you were using.

Perfect with Windows 10

Office 2016 plus Windows 10 is the world’s most complete solution for getting things done.

Windows Hello: You are the password

* Windows Hello biometrics sign-in requires specialized hardware including a Windows Hello capable device, fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors.

** Based on average time comparison between typing a password respectively detecting a face or fingerprint to authentication success.

Cortana

Bring Cortana to your Office to help you get things done. Let Cortana with Office 365 integration help with tasks like meeting prep.
