Microsoft Releases Office 2013, Check out Customer Preview Today!!
Microsoft has unveiled its new Office suite (it is not calling it Office 2013 or Office 15) that will work with Windows 8 devices, which will be launched later this year.
One of the key features of the new Office is cloud integration using SkyDrive. Users will be able to sync key settings across multiple devices after logging in to SkyDrive. You can continue working on the same document using a different device, as well as share it with others.
Microsoft also showed off how users can collaborate on Office through social network integration. For example, you can see if your Skype contacts are available from any application in the new Office suite and make Skype calls directly from within Outlook. There’s also the ability to collaborate on documents through Microsoft’s Lync application.
Good news for tablet users: A Microsoft RT version of Office for ARM-based tablets will be included for free on RT devices, including the Surface.
The new Office will have touchscreen capabilities, where users can use taps, swipes, and other gestures to create presentations. You can also draw on your presentations using a stylus.
Users can try a customer preview of the new Office today by signing up and downloading the suite from here.
