Tech Tip: Office 15 Preview Now Available
This week, Microsoft unveiled a sneak peek of its new Office suite—officially called Office 2013, but also known as Office 15. Visually, Office 15 is similar to Windows 8 with a clean, “Metro” style.
One big change: the program is now capable of being operated by touch, making it more tablet-friendly. (Using your stylus can be especially efficient when it comes to PowerPoint presentations.)
The other big news: this version of Office will be cloud-based and saved in your Microsoft account, so you can access your files from anywhere. (Files will be saved to the Microsoft SkyDrive storage area.) This comes in handy for people who have multiple devices and work in a variety of locations.
There are also lots of apps, templates and other tools designed to make things much more convenient for users. And of course there are lots of social media elements worked in throughout the programs.
Office 15 will be packaged with Windows 8 devices, but can also be purchased separately. You can download a preview of Office 15 now at the Microsoft website. (You can still keep using your current version of Office even after downloading the preview.)
