Microsoft begins Technical Preview of Office 15, goes public “this summer”

By on

The next version of Microsoft Office – dubbed Office 15 – has begun the Technical Preview stage of its development. This means a select number of users under non-disclosure agreements will be sending feedback on some of its new features and changes.

Office 15 has been dubbed as the division’s most ambitious project, mainly because it will blur the lines of a physical and a web app.

“With Office 15, for the first time ever, we will simultaneously update our cloud services, servers, and mobile and PC clients for Office, Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and Visio,” PJ Hough, the Corporate Vice President of Development in the Office Division, wrote in a blog post.

“Quite simply, Office 15 will help people work, collaborate, and communicate smarter and faster than ever before.”

Microsoft has also confirmed that a public beta will be released later in the summer, so we’ll all know what are the new things inside Office 15.
