Touch-Based Word, Excel And PowerPoint Now Out For Windows 10 Preview Users

While these may not be the final versions of the apps, they should be good enough for day-to-day use.


Those cool-looking apps that were demoed at the Windows 10 announcement are now out on the Windows Store today. Users of the Windows 10 Preview can now download these and try out the apps that will change the way we create documents for work or personal use.

Touch is indeed a good thing and makes using productivity apps like these a lot easier. As for the apps, they are indeed preview versions and not the final product. Again, these are universal apps and while the preview is only available for PCs, laptops and tablets the team mentions that same will be available for mobile pretty soon (meaning that the preview release for mobile, is indeed fast approaching).

The final versions of the touch-based Office apps will be released in H2 of 2015.

Do keep in mind that these are just the touch-based apps for tablets and touch-based desktops, but not the Office 2016 desktop version of the software that is for power users.
