Microsoft's Releasing a new 'Office' app for Windows 10

In 2017, Microsoft overhauled Office.com with a modern experience that makes it easier to move between applications and to dive back into content that you had been previously working on. The company says that more than 40 percent of Office 365 web users start by visiting Office.com.

To help extend that same experience that you can find on the web to the desktop, Microsoft is releasing Office, the app. This new app, which you can see at the top of this post, is available today for those who are running on the Insider Fast ring and will eventually be available to all Office 365 users.

The new app isn’t going to revolutionize your Office experience in any capacity but may make it a bit easier to move around inside the different products. The idea is to make it faster to switch apps, easier to return to previous tasks, enhance the search experience and organizations will also be able to apply their own branding to the app.

Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management

Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.

If you are already using the My Office app, you will get the new Office experience via automatic updates. The new free app can be used with any Office 365 subscription, the latest perpetual versions of Office, or Office Online.
