Version 1610 (Build 16.0.7466.2038)


Released to Current Channel on November 10, 2016


Ink Replays


Ink Replays allow you to replay handwriting using the new Draw tab (added in July 2016). This allows you to use freehand drawing to create presentations within Excel, illustrating your thought processes in a step-by-step way.


This feature is primarily intended to be used on tablet devices, but it can also be enabled in desktop versions of Excel.


CSV UTF-8 support


CSV files can now be saved using UTF-8 encoding from Excel.


Get & Transform Improvements


Several improvements to Get & Transform are included in this version:

  • Related tables can be automatically imported when connecting to an OData source.
  • Columns can now be added to queries that invoke a custom function defined within the file.
  • A new Query Dependencies view is available that shows a diagram of all of the queries defined in the workbook and how they relate to each other.

Shared With Me


A new Shared With Me option is available from the File > Open menu, allowing you to quickly access files that have been shared with you by other users.
