TypeOffice suite

Microsoft Office 2019 is the current version of Microsoft Office, a productivity suite, succeeding Office 2016. It was released to general availability for Windows 10 and for macOS on September 24, 2018.[1] Some features that had previously been restricted to Office 365 subscribers are available in this release.[5]


On April 27, 2018, Microsoft released Office 2019 Commercial Preview for Windows 10.[6] On June 12, 2018, Microsoft released a preview for macOS.[7]

New features[edit]

Office 2019 includes many of the features previously published via 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 is absent from the suite as the UWP version of OneNote bundled with Windows 10 replaces it. OneNote 2016 can be installed as an optional feature on the Office Installer.[8][9][10]

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, including other features.

Despite being released in the same month, the new Office user interface in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook is only available to Office 365 subscribers, not perpetual Office 2019 licensees.[11][12][13] The Office 2019 user interface retains the Metro design language from Office 2016, except that the Microsoft account picture is being circular.

System requirements, installation and support[edit]

Office 2019 requires Windows 10, Windows Server 2019 or macOS Sierra.[14] macOS installations can be acquired from the Microsoft website but Microsoft will make Office available through the Mac App Store in 2018.[15]

For Office 2013 and 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, the client apps only have a Click-to-Run installer and only the server apps have the traditional MSI installer.[16]

Office 2019 will receive five years of mainstream support, but unlike Office 2016 which gets five years of extended support, Office 2019 only gets two. Mainstream support ends on October 10, 2023, while extended support ends on October 14, 2025.[14]
