People who have been looking for a practical way to use Ubuntu snap packages are in luck. One pioneering developer has packaged a development version of LibreOffice (LibreOffice 5.2) as a snap. The snap package can be installed alongside a stable version of the productivity suite, tested and removed without affecting other versions of LibreOffice. "The upcoming LibreOffice 5.2 packaged as a nice new snap package. This is pretty much a vanilla build of LibreOffice 5.2 Beta 2, using snapcraft, which is making packaging quite easy. Contains all the applications: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math, Base. Installs easily on the released current LTS version of Ubuntu 16.04. Allows you to test and play with the upcoming LibreOffice version to your heart's delight without having to switch to a development version of Ubuntu." Instructions for downloading and installing the LibreOffice snap package can be found on the Sky From Me blog.
