Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac Released for O365 Customers

Over the past month, Microsoft has been dropping updates for its Office for Mac client and today they announced Office 2016 for Mac has landed — Version 15.11.2 (150701).

The Office Suite for Mac includes a new Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and OneNote. Unfortunately… no updated Skype for Business client for Mac.

As mentioned in the announcement, the Office 2016 for Mac is only available for download to Office 365 customers. Everyone else will need to wait until September when it will go on sale as a standalone purchase.

How to Install Office 2016 for Mac

Office 365 Customers can download the Suite from the Office 365 Software Portal.

If you don’t remember how to run AutoUpdate on OS X, open Outlook or Word 2016 and click Help > Check for Updates.

If you’re looking to package the individual .pkg files for each application vs. the entire suite, you can grab them from the July 9th knowledge base page – KB3074479. The KB article mentions OS X Yosemite 10.10 or later as a prerequisite for installing the software.
