Already, Microsoft has made great strides in introducing its apps to the platforms of its competitors in recent years, and it's now getting prepared to take on an additional platform: macOS. At the WWDC 2018 event yesterday, Apple uncovered that Microsoft's Office 365 suite would be taken to the Mac App Store later on in 2018.
Coinciding with the redesigned app store was the news, besides an array of other third-party apps that'll be joining the Mac App Store beside it.
Indeed, Office 365 apps are already readily available to be used with Mac, continually being updated with various new characteristics. Microsoft has even recently been running an Insider program for Mac users to test out new capabilities prior to distributing to everyone else. Even so, having apps installed via the Mac App Store will provide Mac users with a place to control upgrades and install Office 365 beside all of their other varying apps.
There has not been a definite answer yet as to when exactly Office 365 will reach the Mac App Store, though it is likely that it will arrive fairly close to when the new macOS Mojave arrives with it's updated App Store during the later months of 2018.
