Microsoft today announced an update for all Office 2016 apps on the Mac that bring 64-bit support to all of the apps. There are additional performance and stability improvements, as well.
With today’s update, Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote are all 64-bit. With that upgrade, all of the apps have improved performance and stability, according to Microsoft. The company also says that 64-bit runtime enables “new innovative features.”
While 64-bit runtime has been available for members of Microsoft’s “Office Insider” beta testers for a while now, this marks the first time that 64-bit is available to all users of the productivity suite. Microsoft notes that Office users who rely on add-ins while need to ensure that the add-ins are updated to support the 64-bit environment, which requires an update from the add-in developers. Those developers, however, have had the entire 64-bit beta period to make that change. Customers who don’t use add-ins are unaffected.
Office 2016 was brought up to 64-bit in an update. Office 2019 will start off as 64-bit. For Office 2011 users, the important thing to remember is that you should not update past High Sierra 10.13 until we know whether or not Apple will block 32-bit apps in version 10.14. Microsoft just released its first update to its new Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac client. This is a bit surprising being that it’s only been a few weeks since it went RTM on July 9th, 2015.
Office 2016 For Mac 64-bit Update
Apple updated its productivity suite with 64-bit support back in 2013 after years of being exclusively 32-bit.
Office 2016 For Mac 64 Bit Update 64
- Microsoft Office 2016 - Unmistakably Office, designed for Mac. The new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote provide the best of both worlds for Mac users - the familiar Office experience paired with the best of Mac. If you already use Office on a PC or iPad, you will find yourself right at home in Office 2016 for Mac.
- I am currently using Office 2011 for MAC, which is 32-bit. Every time I open one of the Office programs, Apple notifies me that I need to convert the apps to 64-bit. Can I upgrade to Office 2016, then do the 64-bit upgrade, for free? Or is there a charge to upgrade to Office 2016. (NOTE: I have the license key for Office 2011 for MAC.).
