Microsoft has released an update to the Office 2016 Preview. The Preview was first released in early May and shows some new features of the office productivity suite. The update to the Preview, released yesterday, is no different and continues to add new features. Some of the highlighted features include:
- New charts in Excel
- Real-time typing in Word – collaborate on documents simultaneously through OneDrive for Business
- Insights in Excel and PowerPoint – look up facts in Bing right in Word, Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint
- Tell Me – use natural language to ask Office applications to do something, like Clippy without the annoying avatar
- Convert handwritten equations to text – write your formula and have Word, Excel, or PowerPoint convert it to the digital equivalent
You can read more details in the Office blog post announcing the update.
