New Researcher feature for Word

On September 22, 2016, we released an updated build for the July feature update. And now everyone (not just Insiders) can get Researcher, a new service in Word that helps you find and incorporate reliable sources and content for your paper in fewer steps. For more information, see this article about Researcher. And leave comments below to let us know what you think about the article.

Note: Researcher for Word is only available if you have an Office 365 subscription and is only available in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese.

I simply cannot find Researcher anywhere in my current Word 2016 for Mac or my 365 version. Still searching for a reason.
