Office 2016 for Mac is here!

Last week Microsoft® announced the availability of Microsoft Office 2016 for the Mac® and now it’s available for Intermedia Office Apps subscribers!

Included within Office 2016 are newly updated versions of its flagship applications Word, Excel®, PowerPoint®, Outlook®, and OneNote®.  Designed specifically with Mac users in mind, each app has been modernized to include a fresh user interface and new gesture capabilities.  See what’s new within each app below:

Word for Mac

A new design tab has been added that features professional design elements including exotic typefaces, color schemes and new layouts. On the collaboration side, multiple comments from different sources can be threaded on the side margin of the document to give users a complete view of the evolution of a document. 

Excel for Mac

Excel has been redesigned to make the visualization of numerical data stand out in easily relatable ways, with features that automatically scan your data and recommend the best charts for your information.

PowerPoint for Mac

PowerPoint receives a total enhancement of the animation pane and its animation effects. A companion application has also been added for presenting that allows Mac users to have additional control from within presentation mode.

Outlook for Mac

Outlook receives a redesigned pane that automatically groups conversations so they are easier to locate and manage. Additionally, to make browsing incoming mail easier to organize, the mail preview now includes the message’s subject line, as well as the first sentence.

OneNote for Mac

OneNote is now included in Office for Mac so you can now capture your notes, thoughts, and doodles in a series of organized digital notebooks that can be accessed from virtually any device. You can insert pictures, videos and recordings, as well as tables and drawings which can then be shared and collaborated on with co-workers and other individuals.
