The Mac App Store welcomes Office 365

That applause you hear spreading around the online today might be a result of how Apple has finally added Microsoft Office into the Mac App Store.

Shaan Pruden, senior manager of worldwide developer relations in Apple, claims that if the company overhauled the App Store this past year, it added the ability to roll several programs into a subscription bundle with the notion of bringing Microsoft Office to the fold. That lack of bundling had been a stumbling block to an earlier venture.

“One of the features that we brought specifically in working with Microsoft was the ability to subscribe to bundles, which is obviously something that they would need in order to bring Office 365 to the Mac App Store. “

That is because Microsoft sells Office 365 programs as a package of applications, and it didn’t want to change the encounter by forcing customers to download each one individually, Jared Spataro, corporate vice president for Microsoft 365, explained.

Spataro stated that before today, customers could go directly to Microsoft or some other retail outlet to register to the same bundle, however, what today’s announcement does is wrap the subscription process to an integrated Mac experience where setup and updates all happen in ways you anticipate with macOS.

“The apps themselves are updated through the App Store, and we’ve done a lot of great work between the two companies to make sure that the experience really feels good and feels like it’s fully integrated,” he said. That includes support for dim mode, picture continuity to easily insert photos into Office programs from Apple apparatus and app-specific toolbars for your Touch Bar.

A subscription will run you $69 for an individual or $99 for a household. The latter allows up to six household members to piggyback on the subscription, and each person gets one terabyte of storage, to boot. What’s more, you can access your subscription across all your Apple, Android and Windows devices and your files, preferences, and settings will follow where you go.

Businesses can order Microsoft Office for Mac through the App Store and then distribute them using the Apple Business Manager. A tool Apple developed to help IT manage the application distribution process. Once installed, users have the same ability to get their subscriptions, complete with settings across devices.

Even though Apple and Microsoft have always had a complicated relationship, the two companies have been working together in one capacity or another for nearly three decades now. Neither company was willing to go over the deadline it took to get to this point, or the financial agreements between the two companies, however in the standard split for subscriptions, the business gets 70 percent of the price that the first year with Apple is getting 30 percent for hosting fees. That adjustment into an 85/15 split in succeeding years.

Apple noted that global availability could take up to 24 hours based on your location. But you’ve waited this long, it is possible to wait one more day, right?

Microsoft Office for Mac will be a treat for users!
