With the announcement of the new Windows 10 S operating system during their event last month, Microsoft revealed that they will be moving to a Windows Store only model for the new OS.

With this, users will only be able to load apps that have been downloaded from this store and so Microsoft also had to release Office onto this store.

That release date is today, marking the release of Microsoft Office on Microsoft’s Store for the first time since it was first released.

It will come with access to the following apps:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • OneNote for Windows 10
  • Outlook (not available in preview for Office 365 Education plans)
  • Access (not available in preview for Office 365 Education plans)
  • Publisher (not available in preview for Office 365 Education plans)

And to top that off, anyone who has purchased the new Surface Laptop will be able to grab it with Office 365 for free today.

This is because Microsoft is releasing Office in the form of a preview and because of this, Microsoft is providing a free one-year subscription to Office 365 personal to anyone who has a Windows 10 S device.
