Microsoft Office 2019 is a version of Microsoft Office, a productivity suite, succeeding Office 2016. It was announced on 6 September 2017 at Microsoft Ignite.[2] It is scheduled to be released on 1 October 2018.[2]

Some features that previously have been restricted to Office 365 subscribers will be available in this release.[3] On 27 April 2018, Microsoft released Office 2019 Commercial Preview for Windows 10.[4] On 12 June 2018, Microsoft released a preview for macOS.[5]

New features[edit]

Office 2019 will include all of the features of Office 365, along with improved inking features, new animation features in PowerPoint including the morph and zoom features, and new formulae and charts in Excel for data analysis. OneNote will be retired from the suite starting in Office 2019. OneNote 2016 can be installed as an optional feature on the Office Installer; however, the only OneNote app for PC desktops going forward will be the Universal Windows App that is currently available for Windows 10.[6][7][8] For Mac users, Focus Mode will be brought to Word, 2D maps will be brought to Excel and new Morph transitions, SVG support and 4K video exports will be coming to Powerpoint, amidst other features.

Office 2019 will only run on Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, or macOS Sierra at least. In addition, Office 2019 will not be receiving 10 years of support like most earlier versions. It will receive 5 years of mainstream support, but will only get two years of extended support.[9]

Installer technology[edit]

For Office 2013 and Office 2016, various editions containing the client apps were available in both Click To Run (Microsoft App-V) and traditional Windows Installer setup formats. For Office 2019, Microsoft has announced that the client apps will only have a Click-to-Run installer and only the server apps will have the traditional MSI installer.[10] As with Office 2016, the Office 2019 apps will also be available to install through the Microsoft Store app. Mac installations can be acquired from the Microsoft website.
