Beta version of Microsoft Office 2013 launched
For the Office world, today was a very important day. The beta version of Office 2013 was launched in San Francisco. The new features of Office 2013 have been kept secret until now.
Lots of changes have been made to Office lately. Optimization for touchscreens, ARM-based tablet support and a new Metro interface are only a part of these transformations. This new version of Office will bring us new productivity features for business. The special capabilities that are brought to us by Windows 8 will be used by Office 2013.
One of the new feature that I’m very excited about is the password-protected change tracking. With this new feature, only people that know the password will be able to accept changes of a document. In Outlook, we will be having the inline replies feature. We will be able to reply an email without opening a new window.
If Windows 8 has Marketplace where we will be able to buy or download free applications for Windows 8, the same will be for Office 2013. The Office Marketplace will be created, where we will be able to find and download extensions for Office 2013.
These are only a part of the features that Office 2013 brings us. In the Office world, Office 2013 is made to help users write documents and emails more easily. The new Office comes fully integrated with the new capabilities of Windows 8 and tables.
