On June 22, 2016, we started rolling out an early version of the June feature update to our Office Insider audience.
To get this update immediately, click File > Account > Update Options > Update Now. After you update, you'll be on version 16.0.7070.20.
What's new in this release?
New features this month include:
•Text highlighting: In PowerPoint, you can now highlight text to make it pop off the screen, just as if you were highlighting paper with a fluorescent marker.
•Do more with ink: Visio now includes the Draw tab, so you can use your pen or finger to draw and annotate your diagrams.
•Shape recognition: In Excel, it's now possible to automatically transform your drawings into shapes.
•Faster PivotTables: We've improved the way Excel PivotTables work with OLAP connections, so doing things like refreshing data and switching filters should feel a lot faster.
•Better data transformation features: In Excel, you can now convert Duration values to Years and rename queries directly from the Queries pane in the Query Editor. In addition, we've added support for whitespace and line feeds in Query Editor preview.
•Better data connectivity features: Improvements keep coming in! For example, you can now easily detect jagged CSV files and validate URLs provided by users when trying to connect to their SharePoint List.
For a running list of new features, see What's New and Improved in Office 2016 for Office 365.
Enjoy, and let us know what you think.
