Microsoft May Bring Office to the App Store
Microsoft is apparently tentatively considering bringing Office for Mac to Apple’s Mac App Store.
Microsoft has said it is considering making Office for Mac, or some Office products, available via the App Store. Speaking to All Things D’s Ina Fried, the company said that though the software is already available via numerous other channels, it hasn’t ruled out bringing it to the Mac App Store.
“It’s something we are looking at,” Amanda Lefebvre told Mobilized. “It’s something we haven’t ruled out,” she said. “We just have to see how that relates to our business.”
While users may have to wait a while before they can download MS Office products from the Mac App Store, it’s important to remember that it’s still very early days for the digital distribution platform. Though it was announced way back in October, it was only launched on January 6.
