Now that it’s gearing up to publicly release Windows 10, Microsoft has seen it fit to drop the preview tag from the Office for Windows 10 applications. Starting today the company is sending out final versions of Office for Windows 10 apps to Windows 10 Insiders. These apps have been in preview stage for over five months and while no drastic changes were made, the apps did receive several tweaks and have been significantly refined than when they first arrived.
Office for Windows 10 apps are quite capable of running on PCs even though the company has branded them as mobile applications primarily because they have been designed to be touch-friendly on devices like tablets and smartphones that are also powered by Windows 10.
The Office for Windows 10 suite contains Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile and OneNote. Microsoft has tightly integrated OneDrive with these applications so its possible to edit documents straight from the cloud storage service and then pick up the work on a PC as and when required.
Despite the fact that dropping the preview tag means that these apps are finished, since we’re aware that Microsoft is taking more of a service approach to its new software we can expect these apps to be regularly updated with new features and improvements for many months to come.
