Microsoft recently announced the release of its first Office Insider Fast build to Office 2016 for Mac Insiders. (Non-Mac users take note: Microsoft plans to release Inside Fast builds for other platforms in the coming months!)
What’s the difference between Insider Slow and Insider Fast?
- Office Insider Slow: This is the option originally offered to Mac users. It’s ideal for those who want early access to fully supported Office 2016 for Mac builds, with minimal risk. Every month, Microsoft typically releases one, sometimes two, Insider Slow updates.
- Office Insider Fast: This is a new option is for those who want to use the earliest builds possible to improve quality and influence features. Office Insider Fast is best suited for those who don’t mind the risks inherent in using unsupported builds. Microsoft aims to release Insider Fast builds to Mac Insiders on a weekly basis.
