Microsoft reveals launch date of Office 2016 for Windows

PanARMENIAN.Net - Microsoft has officially confirmed that Office 2016 for Windows will be “broadly available” from September 22, VentureBeat reports.

The full public launch comes after many months of iteration, with the software available in private preview, followed by developers and IT Pros. While Office 2016 has technically been open to anyone via a public preview since May, September 22 will see Microsoft give its omnipresent word-processing software the final stamp of approval.

A number of key updates are coming with its latest version, including collaborative co-editing features which have been available to Office Online users for a while. This will basically let multiple desktop users work on the same documents at the same time, and see all updates in real-time.

Elsewhere, Office 2016 will also make it easier to sync documents from the desktop to the cloud, making it easier to edit the same document on multiple devices. Microsoft’s cloud credentials are a specific focus for chief executive Satya Nadella, who announced back in June that creating “the intelligent cloud platform” was to be one of Microsoft’s three key investments.
