What's new in Word 2016 for Windows

Word Quick Start

Your best work begins with an idea.

And we’ll show you how Word brings your ideas to life with collaboration, editing tools, and design.

Start composing in your own words, and then format text with Themes.

If you’d like to collaborate, share your document on OneDrive with a click.

Then chat, comment, and co-author documents to work with others at the same time.

You can even make Skype calls from your document to brainstorm on the spot,

while review and Track Changes keep everyone on the same page.

Polish your words with powerful proofing tools and style suggestions from Editor.

And with a web browser or the Word Mobile app, you can view and edit docs from wherever—and whenever a thought strikes.

Learn how to bring out your best writing with Word.
