Microsoft has launched a new app that brings experience of Office.com site to the users of Windows 10. Simply called Office, the new app will be available for free with Office 365, Office 2019, Office 2016, as well as with Office Online.
The tech giant is continuously focusing on improving the experience for customers and make the most out of Office. Last year, the company had updated the Office.com website so that users can easily resonate with it. And the move has worked positively for Microsoft. Today, over 40% of Office 365 web users begin their tasks from Office.com.
The main features of the new Office app for Windows 10 include ability to quickly switch between any Office applications just with a click. There will be option to access most recently used documents, pinned documents, and shared documents, so that users can get back into the work instantly.
To help users easily and quickly search and find apps, documents, sites or people, the company has integrated Microsoft Search functionality into the new Office app.
Organizations can choose to customize experience for their employees, implement the branding of company, and combine other business lines into the app.
The new Office app for Windows 10 will be the successor of My Office app that is used to manage Office 365 subscriptions. Microsoft said that My Office app will be replaced completely by the Office app.
“If you already have the My Office app, you will get the new Office app through an automatic update in the coming months. Otherwise, you can download it from the Microsoft Store,” wrote Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365, in a blog post.
Office app is currently available to Windows Insiders, and will be available to Windows 10 users in coming weeks. From Summer, Microsoft will provide the Office app pre-installed in the Windows 10 devices.
