Microsoft's new Office app for Windows 10 is ready for primetime. The tech giant announced today that, following roughly two months of testing with Insiders, the Office app is now available for everyone.
Office, as the name might suggest, acts as a central hub for all of your Office apps. At its most basic, Office allows you to quickly move between Word, OneDrive, Excel, and more with a click. The app goes a bit further, however, serving up your most recently used documents, including those stored in OneDrive.
The new Office app also integrates Microsoft Search, which can be used to query all of your Office apps, documents, people, and sites within your organization. Businesses can also tailor the experience for their employees, adding company logos and branding, as well as enabling access to third-party apps. Finally, if you need help getting started with any of the Office apps available through the hub, you'll also find links to tutorials, along with general tips and tricks.
Office replaces the "My Office" app, and Microsoft says it will be rolling out to everyone "over the next few weeks" as an update to the older app. Once installed, the Office app will work with any Office 365 subscription, Office 2019, and Office 2016 once you sign in.
All of Office for one subscription price
Office 365 gives you access to the constantly updated suite of Microsoft's productivity apps, all for one subscription price. Whether you go with Home for $80 per year, Personal for $50, or Business Premium for $150, there's something for everyone.
