Today, December 15, Microsoft is continuing to carry out new versions of several of its Microsoft 365 for Mac applications that can run natively on Macs with M1 Arm processors. On the latest Macs, officials said, OneNote, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Word would operate quicker and easier, while still continuing to operate “great” on Intel processor with Macs.
Microsoft 365 apps can now operate on Mac computers, Microsoft reported on Tuesday.
By its December Microsoft 365 and Office 2019 updates, Microsoft has added “native support for both Apple silicon and Intel-based Macs” also Microsoft suggested in a support post. “The “Universal macOS binary” is now built on OneNote, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Word for the Mac. Consumers won’t have to do anything as macOS will activate “the most optimal components of the software for your computer,” it continued.
As Universal applications, the revamped versions of the main Microsoft 365 for Mac applications are created, ensuring they are developed to run on different architectures.
Last month, through the Rosetta 2 translation layer which is automatically activated in macOS Big Sur, Microsoft introduced its main Microsoft 365 and Office 209 applications available for Mac devices with M1. Microsoft executives mentioned at the point that they had already begun shifting the Mac applications to universal binaries, natively embracing both the recent Apple Arm silicon and Intel chipsets with much the same execution.
Officials from Microsoft have said today that the latest Outlook for Mac interface is now accessible with an improved Office Start interface for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for Mac. This latest design and sound, officials said, using the Microsoft Fluent UI design framework. The new Outlook for Mac provides support for iCloud profiles, allowing users to merge work and private addresses, contacts, and calendars into a single program. The iCloud user help will carry out across the coming days via the latest Outlook for Mac.
Desktop users are now getting new teamwork tools, like sharing schedules and a new Term for Mac commenting experience on Word. And latest tools are also available, such as the dictation slider with voice commands arriving for Word and Mac Outlook.
Microsoft officials confirmed Mac users will start receiving such updates today with automated updates switched on. Alternatively, users can head to the Mac App Store and press the Notifications tab, or they can search for updates with Microsoft AutoUpdate.
