Microsoft released new Office for Windows 11
Microsoft announced the launch of testing of the 64-bit version of the office suite of Office applications for computers with Arm-processors that run the software platform Windows 11. Developers have managed to improve performance when working with large and filled documents, and also implemented support for 64-bit add-ins for office programs, according to a source.
The new version of Office is currently in beta testing and is available through the Insider Program. Since there are several Qualcomm chips in the official list of processors that are compatible with Windows 11, the appearance of a version of Office for ARM computers looks quite logical. It is worth noting that at this stage office applications do not support some of the features available in standard versions of the Office suite.
Microsoft also announced an updated Office design that will be available in beta versions of Windows 11 as well as Windows 10. As part of the Office design update, an automatic adaptation to system-wide Windows settings has been implemented, so that office applications change the interface according to which mode activated on the user’s computer.
You must be a member of the Microsoft Insider Program to begin interacting with the new 64-bit Office for Arm computers. Installing the app bundle will also require the Windows 11 beta, which launched earlier this week. In addition, you must remove any previously installed 32-bit versions of office applications from your computer. You can activate the updated design in the corresponding test settings menu in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
