In June 2020, we changed the update channel names for Microsoft 365 Apps running on Windows (MC212678, May 2020). We are now updating iOS, Mac, and Android applications to bring consistency across the platforms Office is available on.

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68703
  • Timing: November 10, 2020
  • Roll-out: tenant level
  • Action: Review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

Update channels control how often Microsoft 365 Apps are updated with new features, quality and security updates, and bug fixes.

On November 10, 2020, we are changing the names of existing iOS, Mac, and Android update channels to provide admins consistency in our servicing options. Only the name of the existing update channels is changing. These changes do not affect how the channels work or their cadence.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review these changes to determine their impact on your organization.

If you have not done so, you might consider joining Office Insiders (iOS, Mac, or Android).
