This feature is particularly beneficial for teams working remotely, as it promotes a seamless, collaborative work environment devoid of geographical barriers. Microsoft has adopted a feedback-driven approach for this preview version regarding the license and download aspect. 

By offering the Office 2016 Preview free to users willing to provide feedback, Microsoft is leveraging community insights to refine and adjust the suite in preparation for its final release. Microsoft Office 2016 Preview is an opportunity for both Microsoft and Office users to work together on making the next version of Office the best it can be. With improvements aimed at making the software more user-friendly and better for collaboration, it’s clear that Microsoft is listening to what users need and want.
