Microsoft to give Office 365, Office.com apps a makeover

Microsoft to give Office 365, Office.com apps a makeover

Speaking of colors, users will also start to notice new colors and icons across Office apps that are built as scalable graphics meant to both modernize the experience and make it more accessible.

The biggest change will see Redmond cut its "Ribbon" toolbar from three lines to two. You can see the new icons in the image above, and as with the simplified ribbon, we'll see these launch in Word for Office.com this month before arriving to Insiders using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows later in June.

Automated recommendations reflect Microsoft's belief that Office should deliver the commands users are likely to want while they work, rather than making them pause to hunt something down. Inspired by a new culture of work, the changes are created to meet the demands of customers who tell Microsoft they love the power that Office apps deliver but would prefer a simplified user experience.

The company published a video that highlights all major changes of the new Microsoft Office user experience. In July, Microsoft will also make this new Ribbon design available in Outlook for Windows. The tech giant assures, however, that you can still go back to the old ribbon after the new one arrives on those applications. Later this month, a select group of Office Insiders also will see these new design elements in Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Windows.

Microsoft also explained in its blog, "Office 2019 for Mac also includes features for IT that will help simplify deployment and management".

Office today has a whole bunch of versions-the traditional, fully featured Win32 desktop applications and their near counterparts on the Mac, along with various simpler versions for the Web, mobile, and Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

Finally, there's a greater emphasis on search: the new search box will show suggestions for people, events, and documents automatically, based on what you've been working on and who you've been collaborating with, before you even type any search terms. The search function will provide users with access to commands, content and people, powered by Microsoft's AI and Microsoft Graph.

Now: rollout started for the new interface in Word for Office.com. However, they did mention that in August the changes would be rolling out to Outlook for Mac. This feature is already available to commercial customers using Office.com, SharePoint Online, and the Outlook app, with a launch in Outlook for web scheduled for August.
