Microsoft Office Home & Student 2016 Review
Microsoft has kept the core apps in Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 while making some fundamental changes and upgrades. A prominent move has been made towards collaboration and document sharing. This is the first time that you get real-time collaboration in Word. Excel and Outlook have also seen changes and the best new additions include tools like Delve and Sway. A lot of colour has also been added to this new suite and you get a refreshing experience when using the applications. The search and share options on the apps are convenient and the online help is more or less comprehensive.
Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 hasn’t come with a lot of added features but it is still the best office suite in the world. The look of the suite has undergone a major change and the bright colours look refreshing. Microsoft has kept the applications more or less same but with a few tweaks here and there. The highlight of this drive are surely sharing collaboration and sharing. The sharing button is available in the apps and works with a single click. The addition of Skype, Power BI and Dynamics is a good move by Microsoft. Attaching files in Outlook has become even easier.
What are the applications
Most people associate Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook but it has many more applications. The Office 365 cloud service is a reliable service and you also get various mobile applications for both Android and iOS – Skype, Power BI and Dynamics for instance.
Does it run on Chromebook?
Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 does run on Chromebook but what you essentially get is a free web version called Office Online. The fancy features of this business application are not required on Chromebook.
Can it be installed on an iPad?
Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 is compatible with iPad though the users have not rated its performance highly. There is a bit of lag in performance and some users have reported stability issues. Using a Windows Emulator on iPad when using this application makes more sense. However, Microsoft has added a whole lot of new features and the OneDrive integration experience is quite nice.
Conclusion: Should I buy it?
You may not want to spend extra bucks on Microsoft Office Home Student 2016 if you are using Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013. However, the online storage option in OneDrive is a great addition to this suite and the fact that you can make Skype calls is also convenient. The extra cost of Office 365 will not attract too many buyers because even heavy users may not find a lot of use of it. Finding the files, however, is now easier, especially from OneDrive and attaching files in Outlook has been nicely tweaked. The burst of colours in the new suite make it a refreshing experience.
