Users of Apple Mac computers equipped with the new M1 processor can now take full advantage of the various Microsoft Office tools.
The Redmond company today announced an update that includes native compatibility of its productivity tools with Apple's new architecture. Out, and strangely, is one of the most used applications today, Microsoft Teams.
Best-performing Microsoft Office on Apple's M1
From now on, you will be able to benefit from better performance of Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and OneNote on this platform, since applications gain the status of universal.
The Office suite can now run natively on Intel or Apple Silicon processors, meaning that future updates or features will be made available for both platforms.
With this measure, Microsoft seeks to offer the same quality of service to all users, regardless of their platform of choice.
Microsoft Teams is the only exception
The pandemic scenario has increased the use of unified communication and collaboration platforms, with Teams being one of the most used, especially in the school context.
Despite not being part of the list of updates announced today, Microsoft has promised that it is working on its native compatibility, without, however, pointing to a specific date.
Anyone who has automatic updates enabled in Office should already have access to the new versions for Mac M1, being able to update through the App Store or Microsoft's AutoUpdate software.
Microsoft Office users' iCloud accounts also allow email, contacts and calendars to be synchronized if you use the Apple service to store this data.
