Soon, you'll be able to use an all-new version of Office on your Windows PC.

Office 2016 is the upcoming, latest version of Office. It's designed and built from the ground-up for Windows and the cloud, and Microsoft has just confirmed when you'll be able to get it up and running on your machine.

The official launch date for the anticipated software is 22 September. Microsoft said it will be broadly available starting on that date, though Office customers with volume licensing agreements must wait until 1 October.

Office 2016 includes a number of new features for desktop customers, including the ability to simultaneously edit documents in real-time with others, sync files to OneDrive in the cloud, and more. Oh, and there's new themes.

There's a dark theme and a "colourful" theme, the latter of which has blue, green, red, or purple bars running across the top of each app to correspond with its overall interface colour. You can read more about Office 2016 here.

Apart from this release date news, Microsoft announced it is launching new tools for businesses to manage Office.
