Microsoft makes Office apps available in Windows 10 technical preview

Microsoft has made its universal Office apps, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, available for technical preview on PCs, laptops and tablets that are running the Windows 10 technical preview. 

Optimised for touch and mobile use, these apps are helping advance Microsoft’s mission to bring ‘unparalleled productivity of Office to everyone, on every device’.

“Over the past 12 months, you’ve seen us reimagine the traditional Office experience for a mobile-first, cloud-first world,” said Julia White, general manager for the Office Product Management team, in an Office Blogs post. “The next step in this journey is the delivery of touch and mobile optimised versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook for Windows 10.”

The preview of the same apps will be opened up to phones and tablets running Windows 10 over the coming weeks.

The release follows on from last week’s announcement that Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for Android were being taken out of preview, and a new Outlook app for iOS and Android was being introduced.

Users that are already using the Windows 10 Technical Preview can search for Word, Excel and PowerPoint in the new Windows Store Beta from today. More information on how to join the Windows 10 Technical Preview can be found here.
