Anybody who has been patiently waiting to put the Universal Office apps for Windows 10 through their paces will be pleased to know that today Microsoft has announced three apps are now available to download.
Just over two weeks ago Microsoft unveiled their plans for the new Office apps for latest Windows 10 operating system that is currently under development, and has now made available Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for PCs, laptops and tablets running the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
In total Microsoft will be making available Universal Office apps for Windows 10 in the form of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote all of which will be optimised for touch and mobile use, says Microsoft.
Microsoft has now made the Word, Excel and PowerPoint available to download from the Windows Store Beta from today, although it seems that there are a few issues accessing and downloading the apps that Microsoft is currently trying to resolve, so be patient if you have problems accessing the apps at the current time.
“Office for Windows 10 offers touch-optimized versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook that work great on small screen devices like your phone and tablet—all the way up to the Microsoft Surface Hub.
They are designed from the ground up to run on Windows 10, built for touch and offer the unmistakable Office experience you know and love. As “universal” Office apps, they truly are the same app across device size, providing a consistent way for independent software vendors and developers to extend and integrate with Office apps.”
