Occasional Visitor

Good morning,

 

I'm currently using Windows 11 latest build (22000.65), I am signed up to the Windows Insider Program on Dev Channel.

 

I wanted to take advantage of the design refresh for Office Insiders. I have a Microsoft 365 subscription, and I joined the Insider program by signing up for the beta channel. I updated the program to version 2108 (build 14301.20004).

 

Unfortunately, this has changed absolutely nothing for Office. I don't have access to the new interface, no megaphone at the top of the window.

 

I reinstalled it in offline mode and updated it again, nothing helps.

 

How to access the new interface?

 

Thank you for your help :happyface:

Usually it works such way:

- search "coming soon" or "upcoming feature", click on related, right pane opens, in the bottom is the toggle which is greyed

- restart app (Excel , etc), search again as above, now toggle is activated and switched ON

- restart app again, new functionality shall appear.
