Microsoft Releases First Preview of Office 2019 | AIB

The Microsoft announced the start of the testing program Office 2019 with renovations to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other Office programs kit. For the first time, the PC app package will be compatible only with Windows 10, with no support for previous versions. Among the new features are better compatibility with the electronic pen and more formulas for spreadsheets.

Office 2019 will enhance the experience of using devices attached to a writing system, such as tablets and hybrid notebooks. Package programs will offer quick access to pen functions in a floating shortcut, improved pressure sensitivity, and replay of drawings.

Excel, on the other hand, promises to stay smarter and more useful to Office users at work. The promise is that the application will gain in-depth data analysis capability integrated with the Power BI enterprise tool. The Windows spreadsheet processor will still have new formulas and graphics. PowerPoint will release the Morph and Zoom features for presentations.

The new Office is targeted primarily to those who do not pay Office 365, subscription version with all these functions added over time. On a monthly basis, new features are received in constant updates. The trend is that Office 2019, sold in the traditional license method, will become a novelty aggregator. In addition to the top three office programs, Office includes apps such as Outlook, SharePoint, and Skype for Business. Microsoft also promised to launch the Office 2019 Preview for Mac soon.
