As was rumored ahead of the Windows 10 S reveal, Microsoft is working to bring the full versions of its Office apps to the Windows Store for Education users to use. A noted in a new post on the office blog, a preview of the full-featured Office apps will kick off on the Microsoft Store for Education starting in June.
The apps themselves are set to go live in the Store later this year, and the preview period is meant to make sure everything is running smoothly ahead of launch. A report from ZDNet notes that the apps will also be coming to the Windows Store generally, with a similar preview period for general users in June.
This is an important step, particularly as Microsoft targets the store-bound Windows 10 S as a safe and secure alternative for the education market. Getting the full, more robust versions of the Office apps, converted with the Desktop App Bridge, in the hands of students and teachers is a priority.
