On February 1st 2018, Microsoft confirmed some more information about Microsoft Office 2019 that will be released later on in the year.
Below is some of the key information on the latest release:
- Office 2019 will only run on Windows 10 operating systems, not Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.
- There will only be 7 years of support for Microsoft Office 2019. 5 Years of mainstream support and 2 additional years of extended support, ending on October 14th 2025. Support for Office suites in the past has generally been 10 years.
- Release date set to be in the second half of 2018.
If you are running on Office 365 already then great news, you will get the upgrade included with your current subscription at no extra cost! If, however, you have outright purchased Microsoft Office then you won’t be entitled to the free upgrade. Microsoft Office 365 comes with many bonuses and we recommend it for any business environment. If you want to talk about migrating over to Office 365 in time for the release of Office 2019 later on in the year then get in touch today! Additionally, if you wish to upgrade to Windows 10 to take advantage of the soon to be released Office 2019 suite then get in touch!
We will release more information on Office 2019 in a few months when we get access to the beta releases.
