Back in March we extensively covered Microsoft's Preview of Office for Mac 2016 and added a Quick Tour video of the main features. Today Microsoft takes a big step forward for Mac users by launching their Office 2016 for Mac in 139 countries and 16 languages. Based on feedback from the great Mac Office community, Microsoft made major updates to each of the apps, and they couldn't be more pleased to deliver it first to their Office 365 customers.
