Microsoft is making a radical update, saying goodbye to Calibri, the default font for the past 15 years, and introducing a new font, Aptos.

Aptos, a simple sans-serif font, will become the default font in Microsoft 365 and Office applications, promising users a visually appealing and universal font.

Designed by Steve Matteson, the creator of Windows' first TrueType fonts, Aptos offers a range of font weights and even includes serif variants for those seeking a more traditional style. Matteson describes Aptos as having a touch of humanity, with influences from personalities such as Carl Kasell and Stephen Colbert

The font aims to provide an easy-to-read and eye-catching experience, whether it's used for writing school essays or preparing professional presentations.

Aptos has been available as Bierstadt as part of a feedback gathering effort but it is now being rolled out as the default font in Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word for millions of users.

The font will gradually appear for all users over the next few months. Although Aptos will be pinned to the top of the font picker, it will not be mandatory, allowing users to choose from other available options.
