Word 2016 and Windows 10 Azure AD login

Word 2016 (Office 2016) does not use Windows 10 login credentials, if I login to Windows 10 using my Office 365 / Azure AD account. I have to sign-in to Office again using the same account.

    Thank you for your feedback! This feature is now available in Office 2016 Version 1704 or later (builds 7967 or later). It, however, requires Windows build later than 15000 (Windows Version 1703, build 15063.138, Generally Available). For more information, see Office 365 client update channel releases (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/mt465751.aspx) and Windows 10 release information (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-info.aspx).

        Office 2016 Build 1707 - Word, Excel, OneNote are all authenticating fine with MFA enabled accounts.

        However there is a new setup experience in outlook that DOES NOT work. There seems to be no way to disable this new setup experience either.

        Actually Office uses my Windows 10 login credentials (Azure AD = Office 365), but Office 365 ProPlus does not activate automatically. It is important, if Windows 10 Computers are shared and Office 365 ProPlus shared Computer activation is in use.
