Office 2016 - Is it worth upgrading?

September 25th, 2015

I can't see any noticeable changes from the previous version of  Office. Although, Microsoft is hoping that the update is a difference.

One of the things that I saw in a Microsoft video on their YouTube channel is that they actually have added collaborating within the Office Client. Before, the only way that I knew that two people could collaborate on Office was by being on the web versions.

Access

OneNote

Excel

Outlook

PowerPoint

Project

Visio

Word


And of course, this update is cross-platform that means it will be on phones, tablets, the whole lot.

How can I get my hands on this fresh bit of bread?

To do so you need to get Office 365 Home if you're in a home and eh business and if you're in a business. To do so the Home Package costs £7.77 and for Business, it is £7. Both of those are on a Monthly subscription. And the home comes with 5 versions for desktop and then 5 for mobile and so on.

Then you go and run the Setup and you are able to start installing Office 365. The installer will start installing, then wait and it will ask you to login to verify you have a Microsoft Account then start using.

Only one person on the computer needs to have 365 and the others can just use that copy.
