Microsoft is giving its Office 365 apps a makeover

Microsoft Office 2019 for Mac previews improved inking features and more Download: Office 2019 For Mac Preview Released, Here’s How To Get It

Office 2019 for Mac is supported on the two most recent versions of macOS, and to see how to participate in the Office 2019 Commercial Preview program, head here. Microsoft will expand some of the changes to other Office applications and will move them to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook on desktop devices this year as well. The simplified ribbon will be landing on the web version of Word initially - and only to some users at first - while some Insiders will see it go live in Outlook beginning next month.

Microsoft says that it won't be rolling the feature out to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows just yet.

Microsoft is taking a phased approach to introducing these changes because the company has found that muscle memory is strong among the one billion Office users on the planet. Even when simplified ribbon does roll out at some point in the future, you'll still be able to pull up the current three-line ribbon whenever you need it. Leveraging the Microsoft graph, the new search experience will immediately bring up search recommendations when you place your cursor in the search box.

On the Microsoft 365 blog, Chief Designer Jon Friedman notes that Fluent Design is coming to Office and Office.com.

Spataro explained that for the new design effort, Microsoft had researched and analysed customer input, and given them access to concepts and involvement in creating the new look for Office 365. It will then start rolling out to commercial users of Outlook on the web in August.

"The problem is that in conveying that message I used language that was inappropriate". We had a very good relationship.


The final release of Office 2019 for Mac will ship alongside Office 2019 for Windows in the second half of 2018.

To ensure they get it right, Microsoft developed three guiding principles to "use as a north star" that'll include direct customer feedback, understanding the context you're working in and controlling the experience.

Zero query search allows you to simply click in the search field and before you type anything, Microsoft AI will offer a list of related documents, people you can collaborate with, and commands that you may want to execute. Nearly all these features are already available for Office 365 ProPlus users, but owners and users of stand-alone Office for Mac 2016 have been missing out on them.

While Excel is getting funnel charts and 2D maps along with new functions, Outlook is getting a @mentions feature which is similar to the revamped Gmail.
