Office for Mac now available for Office 365 Subscribers

We’re excited to announce that with the release of SP3 (build 14.3) earlier this month, Office for Mac can participate in Office 365 subscription offerings. Office 365 Home Premium and Office 365 University offerings are available now, while Office 365 Small Business Premium releases soon.

Subscription services are best suited for customers who use Office on multiple devices because it allows any combination of Mac/PC installs via 5 reusable licenses; however, even if you have only a single device there is lots of value including free version upgrades, Skype minutes and extra SkyDrive storage.

Please note that the minimum requirement for Office 365 subscriptions on the Mac is OS X 10.6; while perpetual Office for Mac 2011 remains OS X 10.5.8. This difference is due to some of the services functionality included with subscription offers.

I’m sure many are wondering when the next version of Office for Mac will be available now that Office on Windows has launched 2013; I’m sorry to say that we are not yet ready to make any announcement, but know we are working hard on the future of Office productivity for the Mac. Office for Mac 2011 remains the most current version available to Mac users.
