Microsoft is introducing a new Office application for Windows 10 users today. It replaces the existing "My Office" application and has been designed to be much more useful for Office users. It is essentially a hub for launching new documents, accessing Office desktop applications or simply searching for free Web versions of Office. This is a free application preinstalled with Windows 10 and you do not need an Office 365 subscription to use it.
The existing My Office application has many of these features, but the new Office application focuses on the free online versions of Office if you are not subscribed to Office 365. This is something that Microsoft has poorly to promote, and many consumers simply do not know that Office.com exists and Microsoft offers free online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. A number of consumers also think that the Office is simply part of Windows. Renaming this application in Office and viewing online versions of Office applications will certainly help.
This new Office application also includes tutorials, tips and tricks for the various Microsoft applications and services. Microsoft also allows IT administrators to customize the Office application to allow businesses to customize it and provide access to third-party applications and Microsoft Search. You can download the new Office application from the Microsoft store and transfer it to existing users of Windows 10 in the next few weeks.
