Microsoft has finally launched Office 2019 preview to let its business users try out the upcoming features and changes in the productivity suite, before its actual release. The preview has been made available through the company’s Collaborate product. Users have also been asked to provide their feedback on their experience of using the features. Accessing the preview is not easy in terms of who will get to access it.
As of now, the company is providing this opportunity to only selected organizations that are planning to purchase and deploy a volume licensed version of this upcoming productivity suite upon its release. The launch of Office 2019 has been scheduled by the end of this year. Microsoft has not provided the preview access to the organization that are already using and planning to continue with Office 365. The general public is not supposed to access the preview.
The major disadvantage users may find with MS Office 2019 that they will need Windows 10 in order to use the suite. Rest of the users relying upon Office 365 will have to stick with Office 2016 version. If you are among those lucky organizations and have an access to this preview, you can experience the latest features in the Office applications such as PowerPoint, Word, OneNote, Excel, Publisher, Access, Project, Vision and Outlook. All other exciting features as well as Office Setup can be accessed only when the Office suite will be available for purchase.
