Windows: Office Mobile apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook Mail, and Outlook Calendar) require a supported version of Windows 10 Mobile running on a supported device.

 

iOS: Office for iPad® and iPhone® (including Outlook for iPad® and iPhone®) is supported on the two most recent versions of iOS and iPadOS. When a new version of iOS or iPadOS is released, the Office Operating System requirement becomes the two most recent versions: the new version of iOS or iPadOS and the previous version.

 

Android: Office for Android can be installed on tablets and phones running any of the supported versions of Android and have an ARM-based or Intel x86 processor. Starting on July 1, 2019, support will be limited to only the last four major versions of Android.

Safari and Chrome: Microsoft 365 and Office 2019 are designed to work with the current version of the Safari and Chrome browsers.

Microsoft Edge: Microsoft 365 and Office 2019 are designed to work with the latest version of the Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft 365 and Office might continue to work with older versions of the Microsoft Edge Legacy browser, but Office can’t provide any guarantees.

Internet Explorer: Microsoft 365 and Office 2019 are designed to work with Internet Explorer 11. We recommend that you upgrade to Internet Explorer 11, if you are using an earlier version. Microsoft 365 and Office might continue to work with versions of Internet Explorer other than Internet Explorer 11, but Office can’t provide any guarantees. 

If your organization is dependent upon earlier versions of Internet Explorer to access older web apps and services, you should consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 11 and evaluating Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11 or IE mode for the new Microsoft Edge, which provides backward compatibility for legacy web apps. See the lifecycle support policy for Internet Explorer for more detail.

Firefox: Most Microsoft 365 apps and Office 2019 are designed to work with the current version of Firefox. However, Firefox does not fully support Microsoft Teams meetings.

Microsoft Teams meetings are fully supported on the latest versions of Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. For more details on browser support for Teams meetings, see Limits and specifications for Microsoft Teams: Browsers.

Office 2016 and Office 2019 connections to Microsoft 365 services will be supported until October 2023. Note: Office 2019 is the latest version of Office available as a one-time purchase.

Microsoft 365 is designed to work with the latest browsers and versions of Office. If you use older browsers and versions of Office that are not in mainstream support:

  • Microsoft won’t deliberately prevent you from connecting to the service, but the quality of your Microsoft 365 experience may diminish over time.
  • Microsoft won’t provide code fixes to resolve non-security related problems.
