Microsoft has now announced that Microsoft Apps for Enterprise will receive 3 changes to its product releases. These changes are currently In Development but I dont expect them to be in that state for long as I am already seeing one of the changes within my own tenant.
Changes to the current Channel Names
Over the lifetime of Office ProPlus which is now Microsoft Apps for Business, Microsoft have changed the name for the channels multiple time. So this new development isnt a surprise as Microsoft does love a name change.
|Existing Channel Name||New Channel Name|
|Semi-Annual (Targeted)||Semi-Annual Enterprise (Preview)|
|Monthly (Targeted)||Current (Preview)|
New update channel for Microsoft Apps for Enterprise
In the past, there have only ever been 4 main Channels for Microsoft Apps for Enterprise (not including the insider release channels). Microsoft has announced that they are creating a new channel to help customers seeking to stay up to date with features updates, such as real-time collaboration and AI capabilities. This channel will be called Monthly Enterprise
Default Channel for new Office 365 Tenants
The existing Office 365 tenants you should be firmilar that Semi-Annual Channel is the default channel, however for new Office 365 tenants the default will become the Current Channel.
