Here are samples of the five new fonts available for Microsoft 365 customers one of which will become the new default font.
Did we say five? … there are really 10 new sans-serif fonts. Each of the five newbies come in two versions, normal for standard text and ‘Display’ for headline and large text.
Microsoft has released these new, custom fonts and asking users to say which one will become the new default font.
They are available in up-to-date Office 365 for Windows or Mac or will be soon. As we type this the new fonts are only appearing in Insiders versions of Office but Microsoft suggests they’ll be available to all.
Get the new fonts
Look in your font list in Word 365, Excel 365, PowerPoint 365 etc with the little cloud plus arrow symbol if the font hasn’t been downloaded yet. Just select the font and Office will install it for you.
Here are examples of each of the new cloud fonts plus a sample of Calibri, the font to be replaced.
All the fonts will stay available in Office 365 regardless of which one becomes the new default font. Calibri will also remain available.
