Microsoft Office 2016 has been out for a little while now in Namibia. In the month since Microsoft did the full-press release for all supported operating systems, we’ve had the opportunity to sit down with this latest edition to the Office family. There is quite a bit to get excited about.
Office 2016 Product Information
In terms of new Office features, one of the first things you’re going to notice is how colorful everything has seemingly become. This has been the design direction Microsoft has been moving towards for the past few years, so it makes sense that the latest Office would reflect this mindset.
When it comes to Office 2016 features, collaboration/partnership is definitely the name of the game.
The emphasis on easy collaborating and business intelligence is obvious right from the get-go. One of the first things you’re going to notice with this latest version is the fact that Microsoft is continuing to develop products that offer a variety of cloud possibilities. Yet at the same time, the newest Office release is very decidedly grounded in remaining something that is best used with a Mac or Windows OS, coupled with the traditional keyboard/mouse combo.
Windows users will want to note that this latest Office release offers the opportunity to create/open/edit/save your file in your cloud, right from your desktop. The ability to co-author projects in real-time through Office Online is also something that is worth getting excited about. The “Tell Me” feature, which is a new search function for commands that can be found in Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
You can also utilize Bing to get information straight from the internet. The Mac version of Office 2016 is also worth getting excited about, as it comes packed with a huge assortment of features that are going to be totally unique for Mac users. It would seem as though Microsoft is finally giving Mac fans the Office product they’ve always wanted.
In terms of cloud vs. standalone, it’s worth noting that purchasing the standalone will give you the ability to take advantage of the cloud component. Standalone versions can be purchased for N$ 1645 (Home and Student), N$ 3785 (Home and Business), or N$ 6035 (Professional). Keep in mind features you require.
