Last week, Microsoft released no new features for Office Insiders on Windows. But the latest Windows Office update for Insiders in the Beta Channel comes with several new features for Word and Office Suite apps. New Office Version 2209 (Build 15606.20002) Insiders also includes a good set of bug fixes and improvements.

The new Office version of the Insiders makes collaboration on Word documents easier by letting you create and assign tasks directly from within your Word document using @mentions in comments. People you are assigning tasks to will receive e-mail notifications telling them to take action. Aside from that, user-defined permissions now support domain name restrictions, which means that you can now use domain names to?restrict file access to specific individuals or to all individuals from that domain.

Moreover, Office Build 15606.20002 for Windows also includes notable fixes for issues found in Excel, Word, Office Suite, and Project. You can read the complete official changelog to learn more about what’s new and what’s been fixed in the latest Office update for Insiders.
