Microsoft has announced that it has begun the worldwide roll-out of Office 2016, the latest addition to its cloud-based subscription service, Office 365, yesterday.

The tech giant said Office 2016 brings new versions of its desktop apps for the Windows platform including Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook, and Access.

"These latest innovations take another big step forward in transforming Office from a familiar set of individual productivity apps to a connected set of apps and services designed for modern working, collaboration and teamwork," said Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said in a statement.

The new Office 2016 apps are available in 40 languages and will only work with Windows 7 or later editions. Office 365 subscribers can also choose to download the new Office 2016 apps as part of their subscription, the company said.

Microsoft launched its highly anticipated Windows 10 operating system in July, designed to work across laptops, desktops, and smartphones, as part of the companys’ push to regain all the market share its lost its competitors.
