Touch-friendly Universal Office apps available on Windows 10 preview

Anyone using the preview build of Windows 10 can now download Microsoft’s cross-platform and touch-compatible build of Office for Windows.

The Universal Office apps include Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. They, like Windows 10, have been designed to cater for a range of devices. This means that they can work with a variety of screen resolutions, sizes, and ratios. Users will be able to work on projects and switch between mobile and desktop platforms effortlessly.

These touch-friendly apps are designed to work without peripherals like a mouse or keyboard. Microsoft also confirmed in a recent blog post that the desktop version of Office 2016 will be released in the second half of this year.

Windows 10 will arrive later this year. The upcoming OS will come pre-installed on all Windows Phones and tablets.

You can get the Universal Office apps from the Microsoft Store now once you’re using a preview build of Windows 10. It should be noted that some users are having trouble downloading the apps. These users are being told to check back later.
