Back at this year’s Build conference, Microsoft has previewed its Office Tocuh Apps and we got the chance to see how they look like. Now, the company is sharing some more details with us that are related to the upcoming reveal of Windows 10.

Microsoft has recently confirmed that it will be releasing its suite of Microsoft Office touch-enabled apps – Word, PowerPoint and Excel – once Windows 10 gets released. The company didn’t say if they will release it for Windows 8.1 users, but that seems quite likely. Here’s what they said:

Our vision of Office everywhere wouldn’t be complete without Windows, so I’m pleased to confirm that new, touch-optimized Office apps for Windows 10 are in the works and we’ll have more to share soon.

You can have a look at the video from below to see a quick preview of how the apps will fare on Windows tablets. Microsoft said it’ll share more details with us soon, so we’ll be waiting for fresh information on this. However, my personal guess is that we’ll witness the official announcement at the Build 2015 conference.

While the touch versions of the Microsoft Office apps won’t differ too much from the desktop ones when it comes to functionality, they will be tailored for a compromise-free use on tablets and hybrid devices like the Surface Pro.

Microsoft also announced that it makes Microsoft Office free for iPhone, iPad and Android tablet users, and most likely this will be the same with the touch-enabled Office apps for Windows 10 users, as well.
