Microsoft has released a new preview update to test in the Office Insider program. Version 2206 with build number 15330.20114 is now available in the Current Channel (Preview) on Windows with one notable change: SketchUp files support, common in architecture, industrial design, product design, and mechanical engineering.

Users can now insert .skp files into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. To add an skp object, click Insert > 3D Models > This Device, and select the file you need. After that, Office lets you pan, zoom, and rotate the object to perfectly fit your document. You can learn more about SketchUp support in Office in a blog post on the official Office Insider website.
