Microsoft Office Receives New Insider Update

Microsoft Office Version 2212 (Build 15911.20000) is now available in preview, but does not include any new features.


Users of can reel in a new update this week as the company rolls out Office Version 2212 (Build 15911.20000). This update is currently available on the Beta Channel of the Office Insider Program before it reaches general users later.

Of course, getting an update for Office can potentially be exciting with new features a possibility. However, Version 2212 is a more modest release that does not offer any new features or major changes.

Instead, Microsoft is focusing on issuing fixes for known problems across Word, PowerPoint, and Office Suite:

  • Fixed the issue responsible for failing to create presentations in PowerPoint
  • Fixed the issue where text in Word was unexpectedly hidden by a shape

Full Changelog

“Resolved issues


  • We fixed an issue where a new presentation was not created when using the PowerPoint.createPresentation API.


  • We fixed an issue where text was unexpectedly hidden by a shape even though the text wrapping option was selected.

Office Suite

  • We fixed an issue where applying the blockcontentexecutionfrominternet policy would prevent files containing an embedded macro to no longer to run.”

Microsoft says it is planning a new Office build update for the Beta Channel to arrive this Friday. Hopefully that release will provide more new features than this fix-focused update. It would be nice to get an exciting Office update.

Either way, if you are on the Inside and Beta Channel, you can get the latest Microsoft Office version by opening any Office app and heading to File> Account> Update Options> Update Now.
