Microsoft Office for Mac Adds Touch Bar Support for MacBook Pro 2016 Users

After initially announcing the Touch Bar support for Office apps back in October, Microsoft made the features available earlier this month, albeit in preview for Insider Members only. Now the Redmond-based company has announced that the Touch Bar support is out of preview and available for everyone.

With the Touch Bar support, users will get a new object rotation slider on the Touch Bar for a “more intuitive and precise rotation experience,” Kirk Koenigsbauer, MicrosofOffice‘s corporate vice president, said in a blog post.

While using Microsoft Word, the Touch Bar will offer users access to Word Focus mode, which essentially hides all the on-screen ribbons and commands to allow you to focus on work at hand. Users will be able to access relevant features that are required by the users (like font styles, formatting features, cut/ copy/ paste options) from the Touch Bar. Notably, users can also add hyperlinks, comments, and photos directly from the Touch Bar itself.
