    Hi,
    I get today my new MBP with TouchBar. So I also buy Office 365. I saw that Office support the new TouchBar with exclusive features, but my Office seems dont work with TouchBar. It show me the normal options like brighter or something. My office is surely the newest Version, there are no available updates. What I need to do?
    Thanks for your help :)

    Microsoft hasn't released the update for TouchBar support yet.

    What was used in the demo during the product launch?

    Not sure they used any Microsoft specific apps (though it was just Mail, Pages, and Numbers), but it'd of been pre-release software. Nothing yet available for the public.

    I do.

    I can say with certainty that it will be released sometime between tomorrow and 2018, guaranteed!

    Hopefully more quickly than Apple updates Bootcamp drivers.

    I'm using the betas for Office 2016 Mac....it's not in the slow or "fast" release betas for the public yet. As soon as I see it show up in a beta, I'll try to remember to come back and post it here :)

    Does that violate the NDA of the beta program?

    Is there one? A cursory glance at MS' site doesn't reveal one, and it would be somewhat strange to have one given that anyone can join the beta programme.

    Not that I'm aware of in the public beta. Developer beta is likely different....and for this feature, we ALL know it's coming...MS even stated it.
