Office 2016

Office 2016 is a version of Microsoft Office, released on 22 September 2015. New features include saving files directly in the cloud, Insights, etc. A version for Mac was released later, on 9 July 2016. It was the first version of Microsoft Office to drop the traditional Service Pack update mechanism in favor of cumulative security updates as with Windows 10.

As with earlier versions, an MSI version, as well as a C2R (Click-to-Run) version, are available. The MSI version is only available via volume licensing. This is the first version of 64-bit Microsoft Office to drops support processors without the CMPXCHG16b, PrefetchW and LAHF/SAHF instructions. Also, this is the last official version of Office for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

On all systems, the icons have been unified, featuring the similar icon set on Windows, macOS, the web version, as well as iOS and Android. However, on Apple systems, the icons still have little differences.
