Also we want to share the general availability of Natural Language Query improvements in Excel for Windows and Mac as well as the rolling out of setting automatic data conversions (Excel for Windows) and resizable conditional formatting dialog (Excel for Mac) to Insiders.
We're rolling out an update to the PivotTable field list in Excel for the web to enable users to easily search for fields in their PivotTables. (If you don't see this feature yet, it's coming soon to you!)
Control automatic data conversions (Insiders Beta)
We're rolling out an improvement in Excel for Windows to give you more control over data conversions. More specifically, you can now control how and whether the data you enter is automatically converted to specific formats. Read more >

Previously, the size of the Manage Rules dialog limited you to viewing just five conditional formatting rules at a time. You may also not be able to see the entire formula or the range used in your rules. Now, you can make the dialog wider and/or taller, allowing you to see more of the rules all at once and giving you more space to view longer formulas if needed.
In addition, this update improves accessibility by making it easier to use your keyboard to manage your conditional formatting rules.
