Metro-styled Microsoft® Office 2015 is on its Way
As per the latest reports about the preview of Microsoft Office 2015, the next productivity suite of Windows 8 is loaded with the features for tablets. Though Microsoft Office 2015 is being developed for desktops, its first look resembles a Metro-like interface.
According to the reviewers of the beta version of Microsoft Office 2015, it gives “a full screen experience that indeed mimics some Metro-style design.” After the installation of the software, it showcased about 19 separate live tiles. Ribon, which is one of the most significant features of Microsoft Office, is there on Microsoft Office 2015, but it has been minimized by default to promote neat resemblance to Windows 8 and Metro interfaces.
One of the noticeable additions is the incorporation of cloud technology. It will automatically sign you in when you enter your Microsoft ID to access and manage services on Flickr, My Office, Windows Hotmail, and Windows Live Messenger.
After going through the reports about the beta version of Microsoft Office 2015, one thing that can be said is that the upcoming version of Microsoft Office is looking more compatible to tablet users than the desktop users. While the move is progressive, but complete acceptance from the users of desktops and laptops while operating this ‘Metro-styled Microsoft Office’ is definitely a matter of concern.
