Microsoft yesterday added cadence choices for beta testers in its Office Insider preview program, mimicking a practice it has long used for Windows 10.
Previously, only Mac users of Office 2016 were able to pick between “slow” and “fast” preview release tempos. Now, the same options are available to customers running Office on Windows and Windows Mobile. Microsoft added that the two-track setting is “coming soon” to Android and iOS customers.
“The Fast level provides even earlier builds of Office, more frequently. In fact, these builds are what Microsoft employees have access to internally,” Kirk Koenigsbauer, the executive who leads the Office 365 client applications team, said in a post to a company blog Tuesday.
