Free Office 2016 for Mac Preview Available Now

Good news, Mac owners: Microsoft has just released a free preview of Office 2016 for Mac. The full, final version won’t be available until this summer, at which point you’ll have to pay for it, but you can rock out this beta version until then. You can download it right here.

It’s been a while since Microsoft updated the Mac versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, so a number of the features are new to Mac owners. You’ll get online collaboration, a ribbon-style task bar, new templates, and a host of other features that previously only appeared in the Windows 2013 version of Office.

So grab it up if that’s what you’re into. Take it for a spin, kick the tires, and see how you like it.
