If you were not invited to participate in the Office 2016 preview program, have no fear. You can now signup to be a part of the private program. The program is called "Microsoft Office Consumer Technical Preview" and is currently a private program that you can sign up for but requires you to have an Office 365 subscription in order to participate.
"The Technical Preview Program is meant to give a select group of current Office 365 subscription holders the opportunity to use pre-release versions of Microsoft Office 365 Desktop products. We’re hoping you’ll try the full range of new features and tell us what you think. Participants will download, access, and use pre-release versions of Office applications," the program description states. Here are the requirements for the program:
- Participants will need an active Office 365 subscription
- Participants will install and use the latest version of the product during the program
- Participants will watch training webcasts, either live or recorded
- Participants will complete surveys and provide feedback
Head over to the VIA link below to sign-up. You will be required to enter an email address to join the program. This may be a glitch or perhaps intentional behavior, but it seems anyone is able to enter the program at the time of this post. Once you agree to the NDA, you will be taken to a dashboard where you can download Office 2016 preview.
