The Office 2016 Public Preview has been available since May 4th and here’s an early look at some of the capabilities coming to Office across Windows PCs and devices.
Office 2016 makes it even easier to create, open, edit and save files in the cloud. You can see how the attachment experience in Outlook integrates with OneDrive and automatically configures permissions for recipients. Beyond sharing files from a common location in the cloud, collaboration is also improved with real-time co-authoring.
Office 2016 has new compliance and security controls coming—like Data Loss Prevention (DLP)—native in the application experiences for Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Secure authentication is coming to Outlook to add support for things like Multi-Factor Authentication and Information Rights Management (IRM) is coming to Visio.
Beyond the desktop, the updated Windows Phone experience for Office highlights the richness and fidelity of the apps, including the new palette user interface to make the most of the reduced screen size.
