Microsoft Office 365 for macOS: The new features in the August update

 Microsoft Office 365 for macOS: The new features in the August update © Provided by Dr. Windows Microsoft Office The new version 16.40 (Build 20081000) for subscribers of Office 365 / Microsoft 365 for macOS has been rolled out this week. As already mentioned in the last iOS Rundschau , the developers are currently enjoying the nice weather and therefore there are no great new features. Only Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint received new updates. Word and Excel also received security updates.

Not quite a year ago there was the message (we reported ) that there should be a completely new design and many new features for Outlook under macOS. Shortly afterwards, the Office Insiders were able to test this in the Fast Ring. After that it became very quiet about the update and there was no release date.

As of today the update is finally available. However, this will be rolled out in waves, which may mean that you cannot see the update for the time being - even if the current update is installed. The completely redesigned design can be activated with a switch. So if you don't like the new design, you can continue to use the old display and don't even have to do without the new features (at least those that sit under the hood).

The aim of the new design is to achieve a perfect mix of the well-known Outlook feeling and the new macOS Big Sure. In my opinion, the developers and designers succeeded in doing this. The new macOS update (which is about to be released) is characterized by rounded corners in the buttons and a touch of fluent design. This is now also reflected in the Outlook update.

The search in the title bar is also new. It has been looking very similar in the Windows version for a long time. So this also fits very well into the picture of “One Outlook”, which Martin reported on yesterday. When searching, the results are now displayed faster thanks to the new "Microsoft Sync Technology". This technology is already being used in Outlook for iOS, Android and Mail app and ensures faster synchronization of Office 365, Outlook.com and Gmail. There are also new filters in the search that can be used to fully customize the search. The search field also supports natural language and thus does the filtering.

For example, the distance between the individual emails can now be increased significantly. Even the toolbar can be customized using drag & drop. The most important quick accesses or installed add-ins can then be added there. The “My Day” view of the daily calendar next to the main mail screen is also new. This provides a quick overview of the upcoming appointments without having to leave the mailbox. You can also select the calendar to be displayed and interact with an appointment directly in the view, e.g. Attend or reply to a meeting.

There is also a switch for team meetings, which then intelligently suggests times for seamless coordination with other participants. If the meeting is scheduled, documents that may be relevant can also be displayed in the meeting details.

If you have installed

Outlook via the App Store , you can also download and install the corresponding update there. If you have installed the entire Office package using a (.dmg) installation file, you must install the update using "Microsoft AutoUpdate". In the forum I have already created an manual , which should help you with questions about it.
