It really demonstrates how work-centric my life is when I actually get excited about new productivity software, but considering how much I use Office 2013, it isn’t that surprising that I’m looking forward to a fresh new interface and the collection of new features that Microsoft is bound to add with Office 2016. Microsoft’s new productivity suite will be launching in the second half of this year.
Microsoft announced on Thursday that it will be releasing its next big Office suite this year. It’s called Office 2016, and the announcement comes on the heels of Microsoft’s big Windows 10 event on Wednesday. Microsoft has been focusing more on optimizing Office for mobile, but Office 2016 is best for desktop computers, according to Microsoft. It will be available in the second half of 2015. “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,” wrote Julia White, general manager for Microsoft’s Office Product Management team, in a blog post.
