It’s been more than a month since the official public preview of Office 2016, and Microsoft has already announce a few important new features, along with the announcement that there are now around 1 million users on OS X and Windows.

If you are interested in trying out Office 2016, you can go ahead and get started on this page. Released around a month ago, the public preview of Office 2016 is apparently quite popular as Microsoft says that there are already one million people using it, both on the OS X and the Windows platforms.

Microsoft’s recent update for Office 2016 on Windows Preview comes with a big focus on collaborative work. Real Time presence is a new tool which allows to keep track of which sections of a document you are colleagues are editing. The feature will first be available to OneDrive for Business subscribers, but it will be rolling out to more users in the near future, as well.

Furthermore, Microsoft’s Office team has updated Word and Outlook with the Bing-powered Insights feature which lets you look up information about the text in your document online. This is something really useful, as it lets you put together all the information that you need in a single place.

Another nice update is that file sharing has been improved and file version histories have received an upgrade, as well. As a matter of fact, I will be giving it a try myself and will probably come out with an article to point out what I like and what I don’t, so stay tuned.
