Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 tablets launch, Office 2016 for Windows desktop due in September

Windows 10 tablet owners can now download the final, non-beta versions of the Office Mobile apps from the Windows Store. Microsoft also confirmed that Office 2016, the next major version of its productively software suite, will be released for Windows desktop users in September. Office 2016 has already launched for Mac users.

Microsoft says:

"The Office Mobile apps—Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote—are built from the ground up for touch, offer the familiar experience that Office customers expect, and deliver the capabilities people need for on-the-go productivity on Windows 10 tablets and small screen devices. Across each of the apps, customers will appreciate full fidelity viewing of their Office documents, knowing edits and changes made on any device will render perfectly across all their devices. Tightly integrated with OneDrive, the Office Mobile apps are fully cloud connected, making it easy to access your documents from anywhere, pick up where you last left off, and co-author with others on documents and projects. Your docs are now automatically saved for you, ensuring you won't lose a change and that others can see your edits as you work together. And there are new intelligent features, like Tell Me, that make it easier for you to do what you want in fewer steps."

While Windows 10 users will have to download the Word, Excel and PointPoint Office Mobile apps from the Windows Store, OneNote is already pre-installed with the operating system. Microsoft plans to release Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 Mobile later this fall.
