Microsoft today announced the Office 2019 productivity suite for commercial customers and you can now try the update on your Windows and Mac device. The new version of Office comes with several features that have been previously released on Office 365.

The Office 2019 update includes new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, Access, Project, and OneNote for Windows 10 app. OneNote for Windows 10 is now the default app in the new Office productivity suite but OneNote 2016 is still available as a standalone app.

Office 2019 is a one-time release and won’t receive future feature updates. However, we’ll continue to add new features to Office 365 ProPlus monthly, including innovations in collaboration, artificial intelligence (AI), security, and more," writes Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Office and Windows Marketing at Microsoft.
