If you missed the preview of Office 2016, these are its news


The latest update of Office 2016 has come out a few weeks ago but at the moment it is only for Insiders. The preview of the version 16.0.6868.2048 is already available and, if the testers give the go-ahead, two new features will arrive at suite Microsoft office automation until the final version of the product that can be used by all users.

One of the two great novelties we are talking about has to do with the collaboration between several users when working on the same document. From now on, collaborative development couldn't be easier thanks to the function of sharing and jointly editing files, including comments visible to the rest of our colleagues, reviewing previous versions and, as a novelty, being able to chat with them at the same time.

The function described makes the program, without a doubt, a most practical utility for productive work. The possibility to start conversations remotely with other people it was becoming a requirement that was necessary for the current business environment, much more dynamic every day.


The second great novelty that the new version of Office 2016 brings us is the AutoCAD type file support for Visio environment. From now on it will be possible to import files from the 2010 and 2013 versions of this program, as well as add new forms, elements and environment configurations that improve work.

But as we have already indicated at the beginning of the news, at the moment the version is available only for Insider users. If the system tests pass, we will see it soon on our Windows computers and, later, it will reach Mac device users.

What do you think of the two new functions that have been included? Are you going to take advantage of them?
