Office 365 now available at the Mac App Store

Personally, I prefer Apple’s iWork products (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), but  for those who feel otherwise, Office 365 is available for the first time on the Mac App Store, making it easy to download Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and other Microsoft apps. 

Users can also purchase a subscription for Office 365 from within the apps, so they can get up and running instantly. Microsoft says Office 365 for Mac has been designed specifically to support features that are unique to the Mac experience — features like Dark Mode and Continuity Camera in macOS, as well as the MacBook Pro Touch Bar and the Mac Trackpad.

With Office 365 on the Mac App Store, the Office apps can now be distributed to employees using Apple Business Manager. It’s a central dashboard where IT can deploy devices, apps and licenses.
