Earlier this year, Windows 10 S was released, and with it a number of new or improved Office 365 applications. Windows 10 S is specifically designed for Surface Laptops. However, these new Office apps are slowly being tested on platforms other than Windows 10 S.

Currently, anyone with a PC can install Windows 10 S. However, those without a Surface Laptop still do not have access to these improved Office applications. It is not clear why users are unable to access these apps, however it is clear that users of Windows Home and WIndows Pro should soon be able to access these Office tools via Windows Store.

In fact, the Insider team of Windows has been sending test invites to a small, select group of people. These people will be able to test the Office 365 apps on other platforms. As for the rest of us, the new applications should be made available on the new Windows 10 Creator Update or an update coming soon.

This is great news, as this means a much larger amount of people will be able to utilize these applications in the near future. Nevertheless, the new Office tools are still being tested and won’t be made public until everything is in order.

If you are not part of the small subset community that gets to test these apps, then there isn’t much you can do at the moment to access the new Office components. Nevertheless, it is speculated that users won’t have to wait long until these applications are released for the whole Windows 10 community. In fact, the general release of these software may be available this fall.
