Office 2019 Preview Comes to the Mac

Posted on June 12, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Mac and macOS, Office, Office 365 with 7 Comments

Microsoft announced today that the first commercial preview of Office 2019 for the Mac is now available.

“Office 2019 for Mac delivers new features to help end users create amazing content in less time,” Microsoft’s Jared Spataro writes in the announcement. “Updates include the roaming pencil case and ribbon customizations across Office apps; focus mode in Word; Morph transitions, in-click sequence, and 4k video export in PowerPoint; new charts and functions in Excel; and focused inbox in Outlook. These features are already included in Office 365 ProPlus but are not available in Office for Mac 2016.”

This release follows a similar preview on Windows by almost two months. And like that preview, this first Mac Office 2019 preview is only for commercial—e.g. business—customers, not consumers.

As Microsoft notes, this preview also includes features for IT that will help simplify deployment and management, including command-line tools and support for industry-standard MDM policies.

    We have reached peak Office. There is literally nothing interesting here to see (in either the Windows or Mac version).
