You can see the new icons in the image above, and as with the simplified ribbon, we'll see these launch in Word for Office.com this month before arriving to Insiders using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows later in June.

Features will only become generally available once they've successfully navigated rigorous rounds of validation and refinement, says Jared Spataro, corporate vice preside for Office and Windows marketing.

The Ribbon-that collection of icons for frequently needed functions at the top of the program window-drew ire when it first appeared in Microsoft Office, but most users now find it indispensable.

It starts with a simplified ribbon that's meant to help users focus on their work and collaborate naturally with others. It also comes with a word translator, improved inking functionality, customisable Office ribbons, and overall accessibility improvements.

Next up, with the new colors and designs, users can expect to see Fluent-Design inspired changes across the Office web apps. To name a few, features like the roaming pencil case and ribbon customisations will debut in the Office apps with the new edition.

There's a simplified version of the Office Ribbon, which allows users to collapse it so it takes up less space and hides many options, or keep it expanded into the current three-line view.

Microsoft is adding new colors and icons to Office, starting, again with the web version of Word at Office.com.

New colors and icons-Microsoft is updating the colors of icons and also introducing new icons built as scalable graphics. The update also includes icons that scale better with screen size and a more prominent Search feature in the Office applications. Following on from the initial business preview of Office 2019 for Windows in April, the company has now announced that Office 2019 will be available as a preview for Mac machines with immediate effect. Users should also expect a "zero query search" when hovering over the search box, powered by AI and the Microsoft Graph.

Search-Microsoft is planning to revamp the search experience across Office apps providing access to commands, content, and people. The update is for Office.com and Office 365 users, and will begin rolling out to business customers and consumers in June. Microsoft will monitor the usage of these new features and will listen to feedback from users.
