Apple has finally announced that Microsoft Office 365 is now available on the Mac App Store where users can directly download signature apps such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel that are popular in the Microsoft Windows system. Office 365 for Mac has been designed specifically to support features that are unique to the Mac experience – like Dark Mode and Continuity Camera in macOS, as well as the MacBook Pro Touch Bar and Mac’s trackpad, Apple wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

The debut of the Microsoft Office in Apple Store came a little bit later than what Apple first announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference last year when the Cupertino, California-based tech firm promised the Microsoft Office package would be available by the end of 2018.

Apple said users could purchase a subscription for Office 365 from within the apps, which was designed specifically to support features that are unique to the Mac experience, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Apple and Microsoft have worked together to bring great Office productivity to Mac users from the very beginning. Now, with Office 365 on the Mac App Store, it’s easier than ever to get the latest and best version of Office 365 for Mac, iPad and iPhone,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of worldwide marketing.

Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, said his company has been working closely with Apple to provide Mac users with the very best productivity experience uniquely designed for the Mac system. The Office 365 apps would be distributed to Apple employees using “Apple Business Manager”.

“Business Manager” is a central dashboard from where their IT team can quickly enable employees to get to work Office tools across Mac, iPad and iPhone, with features designed specifically for Apple devices, added, the iPhone-maker added.
