For the first time now, Office 365 is available on the Mac App Store. The idea is to make it easier for Mac users to download Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and the whole suite of Microsoft’s popular apps.
Users can also purchase a subscription for Office 365 from within the apps. Office 365 for Mac has been designed specifically to support features that are unique to Mac – features like Dark Mode and Continuity Camera in macOS, as well as the MacBook Pro Touch Bar and Mac’s industry-leading Trackpad.
‘We are excited to welcome Microsoft Office 365 to the all-new Mac App Store in macOS Mojave. 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.
Office 365 arrives on the Mac App Store following its recent redesign, featuring an all-new look and rich editorial content. With Office 365 on the Mac App Store, these apps can now be easily distributed to employees using Apple Business Manager, a central dashboard where IT can deploy devices, apps and licenses.
‘We have worked closely with Apple to provide Mac users with the very best productivity experience – one that offers everything they know and love about Office through an experience uniquely designed for the Mac,’ added Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft.
