Microsoft has had a new front-end Office app in preview since December of 2018 and the company has now brandished it a viable offering for consumption.
According to a blog post announcement today…
The Office app is free to use and simple to access. It will become available to users on a rolling basis over the next few weeks and will be installed automatically as an update to the MyOffice app, which comes pre-installed as part of Windows. Just search for “Office” in the search bar of the Windows start menu to open it.
The app will also be available from the Microsoft Store at this link: Office
The link still downloads the old version as its not been updated yet, but according to Microsoft will be updated with the new app soon. The app works with any Office 365 subscription, Office 2019, Office 2016, and Office Online – the free web-based version of Office for consumers.
