Microsoft launched Office 2016 for Mac back in early July, and now it has an update for Windows users waiting for the same suite. Microsoft said Thursday that Office 2016 for Windows PCs will launch on September 22, though focused much of its announcement on how the rollout will work for enterprise users.
Microsoft says that, moving forward, customers who use Office 365 ProPlus can expect frequent updates that keep the Office suite up to date with the latest features and security patches. It calls this “Current Branch,” and another version, “Current Branch for Business, will issue three major updates each year with monthly security patches. The company details several of the new IT tools available for the enterprise in its blog post, which we’ve linked below, but consumers should expect plenty of new features, including a modernized ribbon interface, support for proper formatting across devices, multi-user editing and more.
We’ll remind you when it hits on September 22, but mark your calendars now.
