Microsoft Office 2016 (codenamed Office 16) is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, succeeding both Office 2013 and Office for Mac 2011.

New features in the Mac release include an updated user interface that uses ribbons, full support for Retina Display, and new sharing features for Office documents.

In Word, there is a new Design tab, an Insights feature, which is powered by Bing, and real-time co-authoring. In Excel, there is a Recommended Charts feature, and PivotTable Slicers. In PowerPoint, there are theme variants, which provide different color schemes for a theme. In Outlook, there is a Propose New Time feature, the ability to see calendars side by side, and a weather forecast in the calendar view.

Outlook 2016 for Mac has very limited support for synchronization of collaboration services outside basic email.

With version 15.25, Office for Mac transitioned from 32-bit to 64-bit by default. Users that require a 32-bit version for compatibility reasons will be able to download the 15.25 version as a one-time update manually from the Microsoft Office website. All versions following 15.25 will be 64-bit only. Office for Mac got Touch Bar support in an update on February 16, 2017, as promised on the launch of 2016 MacBook Pro models.

Office 2016 for Mac is designed from the ground up to take advantage of the latest Mac features, including Retina display, full screen view support, and even scroll bounce. It’s the perfect combination of the Office you know and trust, and the Mac you love.

Install the latest Office 2016 applications on up to 5 Mac or iPads, get instant access to the latest versions so your applications are always up-to-date, and 1TB OneDrive cloud storage.
