Good news for everyone!
Microsoft has announced that the next version of the Microsoft Office will come on Windows 11 and it will have a new design.
The Office for Windows 11 will have a native 64-bit ARM version, for improved performance, particularly on picture-filled documents and support for 64-bit add-ins.
Not only that, but Microsoft also announced a redesign of Office, which is really similar with the design of Windows 11.
Also, the design will be available even if you are running Windows 11 Preview or Windows 10.
Another thing that will be added is that it will adapt to your Windows light and dark mode.
The Office update is also available for ARM users to test out.
The thing is, Windows 11 is not going to be available for all users.
