Microsoft's new Office UI available for testers now

Posted in Business Videos| #Technology

New Delhi : American tech giant Microsoft started testing its new Office design today. Office Insiders can now access the new UI for testing before it's available to all Microsoft 365 users later this year. As per The Verge, the software maker originally teased its design changes to Office last year before revealing last month that Office's new UI is designed to match the redesigned Windows 11 operating system. The main changes in the new UI are a rounded look to the Office ribbon bar, with subtle tweaks to some of the buttons throughout Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. Microsoft had originally teased more dramatic changes to its Office UI, which included moving toward more of a command bar instead of the traditional ribbon interface. Those changes are expected to appear on the web and mobile versions of Office first, ahead of any significant design overhauls to the main desktop versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. This updated Microsoft Office interface is available for testers on both Windows 10 and Windows 11. You will need to be part of the Office Insiders group and set to receive beta channel updates in Office settings.
