Office 365 for Mac Lands on Apple App Store

Microsoft's Office 365 for Mac productivity suite is now available from Apple's Mac App Store.

Microsoft and Apple noted the addition of the productivity suite in the Mac App Store last week. Previously, the suite was available only directly from Microsoft subscriptions.

Office 365 for Mac comes with Excel, OneDrive, OneNote, PowerPoint and Word applications. It also includes 1TB of OneDrive storage per person. The suite works with devices running macOS Mojave. Store downloads can be accessed from this page.

Office 365 for Mac can be tried as a free one-month trial for noncommercial uses. It's possible to purchase an annual recurring subscription from within the apps.

Alternatively, IT pros can use the Apple Business Manager to distribute Office 365 for Mac apps to end users across an organization, according to Apple's announcement. The Apple Business Manager is a central dashboard for application and device deployments, as well as assigning licenses.

Microsoft is touting features such as "Dark Mode, Continuity Camera, OneDrive Files on Demand, and Touch Bar support on the MacBook Pro" as highlights in the Office 365 for Mac suite.
