Microsoft is making a new Office app available to Windows 10 users today. It’s replacing the “My Office” app that currently exists, and it’s designed to be a lot more useful to Office users. It’s essentially a hub for launching recent documents, accessing the Office desktop apps, or simply finding the free web versions of Office.

Microsoft's new Office app for Windows 10 is ready for primetime. The tech giant announced today that, following roughly two months of testing with Insiders, the Office app is now available for everyone.
