Microsoft has rolled out a fairly substantial update for its Office 2016 for Mac preview, just over one month after its initial debut. The release brings a number of new features and a refreshed design, which includes a colored toolbar for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
It seems like quite some time since the initial rumors put an Office for Mac update release sometime in 2014, but that obviously never happened.

After several years of rumors, Microsoft finally released Office for iPad in March, and since then the Office suite of apps have been downloaded over 27 million times from the App Store.
