Microsoft Office has always been available for MacOS but only through Microsoft’s website. Users were using it by downloading from Microsoft’ website but not having the apps on App Store was an overhead. When the device recommends not to download software from other website, few users may have a fear of downloading apps from other websites.

“We are excited to welcome Microsoft Office 365 to the all new Mac App Store in macOS Mojave,” said Phil Schiller, Appleā€™s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Apple and Microsoft have worked together to bring great Office productivity to Mac users from the very beginning. Now, with Office 365 on the Mac App Store, it’s easier than ever to get the latest and best version of Office 365 for Mac, iPad, and iPhone.”
