MS Office for Mac officially supports M1 and Big Sur

After the M1 version of the Mac was launched, many software still did not officially support M1 and needed to be run through Rosetta 2. Although the performance was still excellent, it failed to fully utilize the M1's due strength. But today Microsoft announced that MS Office for Mac officially supports M1 and Big Sur.

Big increase in performance

Microsoft announced that Microsoft 365 (ie Office 365) for Mac Apps officially supports M1 natively, so that it can fully maximize the performance of the M1 version of the Mac, so that the software has the best performance and compatibility.

The interface is better than Big Sur

In addition to supporting M1, the interface of MS Office is closer to Big Sur. This time, many interface changes have been made to Outlook and OneNote. For the first time, Outlook supports iCloud accounts, which is believed to be convenient for many Mac users.
