Microsoft is replacing the current ‘My Office’ gateway app with a new ‘Office’ app for Windows 10.

The Office app is a gateway to your Word, Excel, PowerPoint documents plus Outlook, OneDrive and SharePoint.

The official Microsoft blurb: ”

Quickly switch between apps.

See all your Office apps in one place and switch between them with a single click.

Get back into your work.

Jump to your most recently used documents, pinned documents, and documents shared with you–whether they’re on your local machine or stored in OneDrive or SharePoint.

Find what you need

With Microsoft Search integrated prominently, you can quickly find the apps, documents, people, and sites you need to get your work done.

Tailor it to your organization

Organizations can apply company branding and integrate other line of business applications through single sign-on to customize the experience for their users.

Who can get it?

Office app works with any Office 365 subscription, Office 2019, Office 2016, or Office Online (the browser based version of Office).

The app is free.


Only Windows Insiders (Fast) can get the Office app now. It will gradually roll out to Slow level and eventually all Windows 10 users.

If you already have the My Office app, it will be updated to the new Office app.

Otherwise, search the Microsoft Store for ‘Office’ when it’s available.
