Your company advertised that it had already added touch bar support to office for Mac on the Microsoft blogs. However it is not installed there is no plan for it on roadmaps. This is False advertising by the Vice President of the office team!! Where is the touch bar support for the new Mac?!?!?!?!

        Agree with other posters. You owe customers of Office a timeline. Been three months since you annnouced. Is it a month away (you're actively working on it) or a year (which means it's actually vapor like most other promises made over the years re Mac Office)?

        This is another example of misinformation coming from Microsoft. The release clearly mislead your customer base into believe this release was imminent. Either Microsoft is purposely holding this release back because they underestimated the competitive advantage this would provide apple and have reevaluated bringing this to market to minimize continued loss of share with surface book pro, or they underestimated the work needed to bring this to macOS and do not have sufficient resources assigned to bring this to market in the time frame eluded to in the first release. The fact that Microsoft will not commit to a date means this is probably much further out then any of us hope.

        So disappointed by the fact that it was announced during the October keynote that this feature was coming by the end of 2016. It's 2017 already and still we do not have touch bar support, not even for those who are in the Office insider program

        Its disappointing that the latest update (Version 15.30) for Mac Office 365 still does not enable the touch bar to be used in the MacBook Pro. More disconcerting is that on there is no timeline for this in the Office Blogs. Microsoft should at the very least issue a statement letting its customers know that the touch bar feature is not yet ready and give some timeframe when it can be expected.
