Microsoft’s Universal Office for Windows 10 Technical Preview Is Available Now
Preeminent software producer Microsoft has now introduced another advancement over its previously popular Office suit. The company has launched preview of its Office apps for the latest Windows 10 build. You can now download the new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps from the Windows Store Beta.
As claims the Microsoft, the new Office apps are equally effective for tablets, laptops, and touch-enabled desktops. Those with small tablets and phones need not to worry because Microsoft has something to offer them as well. If your mobile device is capable to run Windows 10, then wait for the preview of advanced Office not longer than few weeks.
Office for Windows 10, which is expected to be inaugurated near the end of this year, is comprised of touch-optimized:
- Word to create, review and edit documents,
- Excel to work with pictorial data, to create, edit and analyze spreadsheets,
- PowerPoint to better your presentations,
- OneNote to jot down important notes.
Additional online resources, including images, definitions, and web references, are likely to revamp your reading experience. Previously, these features were just available in Office online but not in Read mode.
Every app seems optimal but one very important app is missing — the Outlook. Earlier on January 22, Microsoft promised the preview of all the apps but it came up with Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Later, the shipping of OneNote began, as well, with the Windows 10 preview.
Now Outlook has been introduced for Android and iOS, but the sort of enigma still persists for its launching for Windows 10. However, Microsoft has shared yet another ambiguous statemate for its launching.
“Outlook Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 will be available in the Windows 10 store at a later date, but we have nothing more to share on timing,” a Spokesperson of the company said while talking to VentureBeat.
The wait for Outlook persists until this time, but it is fair to anticipate that it will be launched along with Universal Office later this year.
