Last year, Apple promised that it will be bringing the suite of Microsoft apps to the Mac App Store. It has finally happened. Although these were to arrive at the store by the end of 2018, this will make things simpler for Apple users.
Microsoft Office 365 for the Mac App store will include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, and OneDrive. The users will need a subscription to Office 365 to use Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook software apps. Some of the features on Office 365 have been designed specifically keeping the Mac experience in mind. The Microsoft Office 365 features dark mode and Continuity Camera in macOS, the MacBookPro Touch Bar, and Trackpad.
Apple on its website welcomed the apps to its world. “Apple and Microsoft have worked together to bring great Office productivity to Mac users from the very beginning. Now, with Office 365 on the Mac App Store, it's easier than ever to get the latest and best version of Office 365 for Mac, iPad, and iPhone,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
The Office apps were previously available for the Apple users through Microsoft’s website. Now, they are directly accessible to the users via the Mac App Store. The Apple users can now also avail automatic updates of these Microsoft Office apps after this announcement.
