Microsoft Office 365 is Getting a Design Makeover

Microsoft Office 365 is Getting a Design Makeover

"Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows offer our deepest, richest feature set-and they're the preferred experience for users who want to get the most from our apps", said Spataro.

The company recently also announced a preview version of the Mac version of Office 2019, which will be coming to the Mac App Store.

Today, Microsoft announced a bunch of design changes to its Office applications, the most major changes that the suite of apps has seen since the Office 2016 apps; possibly before that, depending on your perspective. My one question is whether you'll be able to remove the Ribbon entirely, as I usually do with the up caret icon on its right side. The icons, like all other parts of the update, will first appear in the web versions of the apps before rolling out to desktop. The new look, Microsoft says, sports a cleaner and simpler look while giving users the ability to customize it with the tools they use most, mimicking the experience of pinning items to your taskbar in Windows.

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

The new icons are meant to render more crisply and cleanly on screens of any size and to look better for those with vision impairments.now there are more than 10,000 different icons in Office, Friedman noted, and Microsoft wanted to make them more consistent and accessible from the get-go, using color, contrast and other design elements. Microsoft is rolling out new features in waves so it can collect feedback and improve Office slowly, which is definitely a good idea given the reaction to some of the changes it's previously implemented. You can see the evolution of Microsoft Office icons over the years in the image below. The Commercial Preview of the 2019 edition of Office for Windows users was already out in the month of April. This so-called "zero query search" functionality will enable users to access contacts, commands and information within Office files with less searching.

Later in June, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows will get the new colours and icons, with Outlook for Windows and Mac getting them in August. Leveraging the Microsoft graph, the new search experience will immediately bring up search recommendations when you place your cursor in the search box. Nearly all these features are already available for Office 365 ProPlus users, but owners and users of stand-alone Office for Mac 2016 have been missing out on them.
