Microsoft is giving everyday home and professional users of Office a chance to experience the newest versions of the software for free before their official release date, in exchange for constructive criticism.
The pre released beta versions of Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Vision and Word will be available to users in their purest non-tested form, in return users must provide developers at Microsoft with feedback on the new version software. Business users will also be offered the opportunity to test premium business products such as Exchange, Project and SharePoint as well as online cloud services.
In order to test the Microsoft office software you must register as a Home or Business user with Microsoft and complete a form explaining why you’d like to be chosen to test the software. Microsoft can then choose the clients most likely to provide constructive criticism.
