Can you read me? Loud and clear.
In Read Mode, text reflows in columns automatically for easier on-screen reading. And fewer menus—only tools that add value to your reading—keep you focused on your content.
The familiar Word program lets you create, edit, and share work quickly and easily. Most people can open and work with a document in Word. It’s the most popular word processing program in the world.
Bring it all together
1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage keeps you connected to important files. Install the Office apps on your mobile devices and you can access the latest version of your files anytime, anywhere. Roaming documents keep track of your most recently used files so you can quickly access them across devices and pick up right where you left.
It’s not just words. It’s a conversation.
Sharing is simplified. Save files to the cloud on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint and just send everyone a single link to the same file, along with viewing and editing permissions. You’ll all have the latest version of the file.
You and your team can converse, collaborate and co-author your documents in real-time using Word. As you and your team make edits and changes to your documents, the improved version history in Word 2016 allows you to view or go back to earlier drafts.
Stay on track
Track changes, and add or reply to comments right next to the text you’re discussing. Everyone can follow the conversation and stay on top of changes to the text, layout and formatting.
Now, that’s nicely done.
Give your documents a professional look—align charts, photos, videos, and diagrams with your text. Handy alignment guides pop into place when you need them and disappear when you’re done. Live Layouts on your desktop and tablet let you drag a photo, video, or shape to where you want it and the text reflows right before your eyes.
It works with PDFs
Here’s a time-saver you'll really love: Open a PDF in Word on your desktop, and you can edit content, such as paragraphs, lists and tables, as if you created it in Word.
It works for you
The new Tell Me feature lets you search for a feature and returns links directly to the commands in Word. Insights, new with Word 2016, finds you contextual information from the web within the reading experience.

Office Online combines commonly used Office features and real-time co-authoring capabilities so teams at work and school can collaborate on shared documents, presentations and spreadsheets.
