Microsoft has made a variety of important announcements for Office 360 users with the new Apple Silicon, macOS Big Sur, and more in mind.
Microsoft today announces a series of updates for Office 360 users that provide native support for new ARM architecture Apple Silicon devices. Programs that receive these updates include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and One Note, but there is no support for Teams yet.
The company that owns Windows says users should notice these performance improvements when using Office applications on Mac M1. In addition, these updates are universal, so there is also support for Mac’s with Intel.
Also, Microsoft is making a notable change to Outlook by adding iCloud account support for the first time.
“Today we are pleased to announce support for iCloud accounts in the new Outlook for Mac. This will allow you to organize your work and personal emails, contacts, and calendars in one application, making it easier for you to stay connected to what matters. “Microsoft said.
On the other hand, Microsoft promises that it is working so that the Teams application receives support for Apple Silicon, but without any date set for the update. However, its competition, Slack, does have native support in a public beta version.
Our friends at @Apple are building the future of Macs with Apple-designed processors and we're excited to be along for the ride.
Today, Slack for macOS Beta supports Apple silicon without emulation. Get it at https://t.co/BXplcfXPQn – we're looking forward to your feedback!
