No one should be surprised about the announcement that a new version of Office, Office 2019, was coming. But, Microsoft officially announced that they are working to bring Office 2019 to preview mid-2018. Still a ways out, but some stuff to look forward to:
Office 2019 will add new user and IT capabilities for customers who aren’t yet ready for the cloud. For example, new and improved inking features—like pressure sensitivity, tilt effects, and ink replay—will allow you to work more naturally. New formulas and charts will make data analysis for Excel more powerful. Visual animation features—like Morph and Zoom—will add polish to PowerPoint presentations. Server enhancements will include updates to IT manageability, usability, voice, and security.
