Microsoft has announced that its Office universal apps including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel are now available on Windows 10 technical preview.

Microsoft has delivered its Office universal apps including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel for the Windows 10 technical preview. In the coming weeks, the apps -- Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote can be installed on PCs, tablets and phones running Windows 10.

These touch-based Office apps will be available in the new Windows Store Beta and should be preinstalled for tablet and phone running Windows 10.



For Microsoft, its Office apps on Windows 10 will deliver a touch and mobile-first experience across devices. These apps will run on multiple screens and devices with one code line. The approach will be Microsoft's way to bring the unparalleled productivity of Office to everyone, on every device.

The Company is attempting to deliver touch-optimized versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook that work great on small screen devices like your phone and tablet -- all the way up to the Microsoft Surface Hub. As "universal" Office apps, they truly are the same app across device size, providing a consistent way for independent software vendors and developers to extend and integrate with Office apps.

The final versions of these apps will be released in the second half in 2015, and Microsoft is already working on the next release of the Office desktop suite that will be called Office 2016.
