It looks like Microsoft wants you to participate in creating and improving new products more than ever. After releasing free Technical Preview of Windows 10, Microsoft now offers you preview of Office apps for this operating system.
How To Get Microsoft Office Apps For Windows 10 For Free
Not so long ago Microsoft presented its Office apps for Windows 10 and told us what to expect from them. And recently, these apps have finally been launched to the Windows Store. But if you want to download these apps for free, you’re going to need Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926, as the Office apps are integrated into the new Windows App store available in the latest build.

Windows 10 versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint are just preview versions of the apps, just like the operating system itself. And just like the operating system, you can download them for free. Since this is just a preview, the store listing says that”You can use most functionality in Word preview for free. After preview, some functionality will require a qualifying Office 365 subscription.”

Microsoft Office apps, more precisely Word, Excel and PowerPoint are available to Windows 10 Technical Preview users on PCs, laptops and tablets, but this feature isn’t available for Windows Phone platforms, yet. The reason for that is for sure the fact that Windows 10 still doesn’t have any kind of preview for Windows Phone devices. But Windows Phone 10 will certainly be released at some point this year, but we still don’t have an official information whether it will feature the free version of Microsoft Office, or not. Of course there will be a lot news and updates from Microsoft in the coming months, so we’ll know a lot more very soon.

The preview of OneNote is integrated in the system, with the 9926 build, so you don’t have to bother to install it from the store. Of course, purpose of the free preview apps is to help Microsoft to determine what users want from them, and which improvements they need to make.
