Word 2019 encourages online teamwork
What you've read until now are some of the general features that we all expect from this program. However, if it continues to be the favorite software for millions of users it's because Microsoft has worked to adapt its features to how we work nowadays, both in the professional, educational and domestic scopes.
A tool present at schools, homes and offices.
We're continuously connected to the Internet so it sounds fair to encourage this aspect in any program, and Word wasn't going to be any less. That's why it has included file synchronization with OneDrive in order to grant reading and writing permissions with other users. Therefore, if you work collaboratively you'll always have access to the most recent version of the document. And all the latter, with space to add comments and replies, so that all members of the team can get to know what design, contents, and format modifications have been carried out.
However, the history version allows us to recover documents before any changes were made, therefore, if there were an error, you can always recover a previous version.
You can download a free trial version, but you'll have to sign up for Office 365 and provide your credit card details... In any case, you just might end up finding this subscription method interesting as you'll always have the latest updates online ready to be downloaded.
