Microsoft announced on Friday the launch of a new program called Office Insider. This gives Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal and Office 365 University subscribers the ability to opt in to pre-release builds of Office 2016 for Windows.

The program was announced alongside new features for PowerPoint, which are exclusive to Office 365 subscribers. These, the company said, are the first in a series of planned Office 365 updates which it will be rolling out soon.

"As an Insider, you get first-hand access to the latest innovations, putting you on the inside track for all things Office," said Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Microsoft Office team. "And when you become an Office Insider, you are joining a community of like-minded power users. With your partnership, we can ensure a high quality Office experience for millions of Office users worldwide."

"If you are a commercial Office 365 subscriber and would like to get early access to new features, you can opt in to Office 365 First Release," he added. "Mac customers, stay tuned for more shortly on Office Insider for Mac."
