In the one day keynote held by tech giant Apple at WWDC 2018 recently, the company declared the upcoming major versions of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Apple further proclaimed a revamp of the Mac App Store and with this in consideration, a number of organizations that will be getting their flagship applications to the Mac App Store.
Among those companies is Microsoft, which will be getting the Microsoft Office 365 suite to the Mac App Store. Therefore, it means that the users will be able to download, install, activate and set up the entire Office 365 suite from the Store with just one click, something that they have never been able to do previously. As a matter of fact, they have never been able to download any Microsoft Office applications apart from OneNote from the Mac App Store.
Of course, Microsoft Office 365 applications are already available for Mac, and they are renewed continuously with added features. Microsoft also runs an Insider program for the users of Mac to test new capabilities before they are released to everybody else. Although, installing the Microsoft Office apps via the Mac App store will provide the users of Mac a single place for managing updates and installing Office 365 along with all of the other applications.
Here are the Office 365 applications which will be available on Mac Store
Word: This application has set the bar for word processors, and it is possible with Microsoft Office 365 for Business along with Premium. If workers in your business have to create documents, then this is the application that they will use.
