Microsoft will soon begin rolling out a new version of Office 365, called “Revamped,” to Windows, Mac and Linux users, which will bring new features, including a better drag-and-drop interface and improved integration with Office 365 apps.
Microsoft is calling it a “major update” and has made the update available in beta form for now.
The announcement also included the release of a new Microsoft Office app that is compatible with Office 2013, and a new batch of new Office features, called Office 365 Connect.
Microsoft has also launched an Office 365 Mobile Preview.
This new version will provide Office 365 users with a preview of the new Outlook app, which is available for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices.
Microsoft also is releasing an Office Mobile Preview for Mac and Office Mobile preview for Linux, but it will not be available for these devices.
Microsoft will also begin rollingout a new Outlook.com desktop app, as well as a new Office 365 cloud-based email service called Office365 Mail, as part of the upgrade.
Microsoft says these two features will be rolled out to Office 365 customers starting on April 15, and that they will also be rolled-out to Office 2013 customers starting next week.
