Microsoft today announced a major new release of Office 2016 for Mac that aligns this product with the versions on Windows, Android, and iOS.

“Mac Office 2016 version 16 is now live! For the first time in over 20 years, Office is again built out of one codebase for all platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android)!” Microsoft principle software engineer Erik Schwiebert tweeted today. “Massive code alignment under the hood, bringing new user features such as real-time collaboration in Word and PPT, more formulas and multithreaded recalc in Excel, etc!”


A little piece of history made today.
