Microsoft officially announced Office 365 back in October 2010. The Office 365 Beta followed in April 2011 and later, in June 2011, it was released to the public. And as usual, Microsoft has something else in the works: the company has been quietly testing the new Office 365 Admin app for Windows 10.
Office 365 is a subscription plan that comes with the full suite of Office applications along with other cloud productivity services. And according to reports, Office 365 Admin has been spotted on the universal Windows Platform on the Windows Store.
However, it seems that the Office 365 Admin app is currently in beta, so the application most likely contains bugs and errors which will be fixed once the application is officially released by Microsoft. Office 365 Admin is currently available for Windows 10 Mobile and PCs that run on Windows 10. However, since the application is built for the Universal Windows Platform, some Windows 10 Mobile users can also try to use it in Continuum.
Office 365 Admin for Windows: Features

If you’re using the Office 365 Admin on Windows Phone 8.1, we suggest you to keep using it until the new UWP application is made more stable. However, if you can’t wait until then, you can download the new application and give it a try.
