A new blog post with a quarterly digest of an exhaustive list of new features across the Microsoft board, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Word, Teams, Power BI, OneDrive, Forms, OneDrive Windows etc. with accompanying images, gifs and videos from my YouTube channel. This doesn't include bug fixes nor every single feature, and with a lot of ground to cover I’ll just scratch the surface on each feature.
It's a comprehensive list so I’ll start by introducing my top 5 new features, I dive deeper into each in their own section.
Microsoft Office features are only available if you have the subscription version e.g. Excel 365, and within that, there are many release cadences ranging from semi-annual to multiple times per week with Office Insider. To see your version, click File> Account. Blue items across MS Office are covered in this video:
Teams received some upgrades with more planned soon.
Note: Some of these are “Preview features” so you may have to click File> Options> Preview features to enable them.
Great to hear! Also check out my YouTube for more updates on these!
Very many thanks David. I'm now up and running!
Thanks so much Christopher! Keep an eye out for the next one. Firstly you must be an office 365 subscriber to get the new things in Excel, PowerPoint etc. Then you may become an Office Insider. If you have a personal Office 365 subscription you can do the steps yourself, if you have a business subscription then your IT admin would need to do it for you.
