Microsoft’s next major Office release set for later this year

January 22nd, 2015 at 4:50 PM
Microsoft Office 2016 Release Date

Microsoft’s next major version of Office is supposed to launch later this year, according to The Verge, although a firm release date isn’t available at this time.

“We will have more to share on Office 2016 in the coming months, but this suite will remain the comprehensive Office experience you’re long familiar with, best suited for a PC with keyboard and mouse,” Microsoft’s Office general manager Julia White said. “We expect to make Office 2016 generally available in the second half of 2015.”

While Office 2016 is supposed to look and feel similar to Office 2013 overall, the company will make certain user interface changes such as darker themes and bring additional features to users, including a Clippy-like helper.

The publication says the real changes are coming to the touch-friendly Office for Windows 10.

Preview Office for Windows 10 versions are also supposed to be released starting at some point in the coming weeks, with the final version expected to launch later this year. Office for Windows 10 should be similar to Office for iPad, though it’s also supposed to feature special inking support.
