Microsoft launches Office 2016 in Malaysia

By / 2 years ago / News / No Comments

Microsoft today announced the Malaysian launch of their Office 2016 productivity suite that comes with revamped versions of their Office desktop apps for Windows, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Project, Visio and Access.

Where Office 2016 differs is a new co-authoring function that allows users to collaborate and see edits from other users as they make them in Word, PowerPoint and OneNote. There’s also tighter integration with Skype with in-app integration so you can take advantage of in-app messaging, video chat and screen sharing even with a document open.

One of the newest features with Office 2016 is a new feature called Sway, a ‘storytelling’ app as the chaps from Redmond put it. It allows you to import documents, load it in OneDrive up in the cloud and it automatically reformats it based on the device you’re using to access it while allowing you to share it with other users.
