Office 365 apps are now available in the Windows Store for Windows 10 S
Microsoft has started shipping all of its Surface Laptop pre-orders a few days ago and made it available for purchase in select countries. That also means Windows 10 S, the edition that runs only apps from the Windows Store, is now available publicly for the first time ever. Of course, Microsoft had to offer a way to use its own desktop apps and services on that edition too so the company has finally published Office 365 applications into its own Windows Store.
Windows Store Features Office Desktop Apps in Search
Microsoft is going to put their Office desktop apps in the Store in the near future. As of this writing, you can find app links in the Store using search, but they do not work. This should resolve over the next few months running up to the release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3).
