Office 2016 Preview for Mac include improved versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. Every ‘part’ of Office 2016 features Microsoft’s recognizable metro-style user interface, which means that Microsoft’s office package will be available in the ‘same shape’ across all platforms it’s available for.

A couple of new features have been added, but Mac version still lacks some features that are available for Windows users of Office 2016 Preview. For example, Mac users can edit someone’s Word documents in real time, but features like Excel’s Quick Analysis are still missing from the package.

Microsoft said that users of Office 2016 Preview provided more than a 100,000 pieces of feedback, which helps the company a lot in developing new features, fixing bugs and working on future improvements. Of course, Microsoft should expect smaller amount of feedback from Mac users, because they can’t get Office preview for free, unlike Windows users, who are able to download and test the free trial from the official site.

Office 365 subscription costs $69.00 on a yearly basis, and Microsoft didn’t reveal if there will be a free trial of Office 2016 Preview for Mac users. But Microsoft wants Mac users to use Office and Office 365 subscription, as the company promised that there will be “updates and new features for Office 365 customers at least once per quarter.”

If you don’t want to buy Office 365 subscription, Microsoft said that a separate version for one-time purchase will be available sometime this fall, but the pricing plan has yet to be announced.
