Microsoft Office 365 on Apple’s Mac App Store

Earlier today, Microsoft’s (MSFT) Microsoft Office News Twitter handle, revealed that the Office 365 suite is now available on Apple’s Mac App Store. In the tweet, it added, “With one click, Mac users can now download the cloud-connected, always-up-to-date version of the Office suite.“

Soon after, Apple published an update on its website, announcing the availability of Office 365 on the Mac App Store for the first time. In its update, Apple commented, “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’s industry-leading Trackpad.”

Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing said, “Apple and Microsoft have worked together to bring great Office productivity to Mac users from the very beginning. Now, with Office 365 on the Mac App Store, it’s easier than ever to get the latest and best version of Office 365 for Mac, iPad and iPhone.”

Apple is slated to release its first-quarter 2018 earnings results on January 29.
