What’s New in Word 2016

Many of the new features of Microsoft Word 2016 were built around collaboration. It's easier than ever to share One Drive or SharePoint files with others, just click Share to invite people to view or edit your document. Once they accept and open or edit your document, you’ll see a message asking if you want to view their edits in real time. This reduces the amount of versions that are needed and eliminates emailing files back and forth. And, if conflicting edits are make at the same time, the conflict window allows you to choose which one to keep.

Version history has also been enhanced. Now from the fie menu, you can easily view versions of your document, changes made, and quickly revert back to previous versions.

Smart Lookup allows you to lookup (imagine that!) words or phrases from your document, and in addition to displaying the definition as it has in previous versions, Word also displays Wiki articles and other search results from Bing. Although not a game changer, I do enjoy searching right from Word without switching windows to a web browser.

Of course Tell Me is available in Word, just like the other Office programs. Using the Tell Me option in to ribbon, you can type in what you want to do. Tell Me returns a list of links that you can click on to perform the desired action.
