Microsoft has announced that it will release a universal binary of its Office 2019 beta for Mac that is compatible with the new Mac mini, MacBook Air, and 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 chip (also called Apple Silicon).
MSFT plans to push a Universal build of Mac Office 2019 to the Beta Channel (formerly “Insider Fast”) by the end of today.
We don’t have a public date or version for a final release; this is an initial peek for customers to test on hardware they may be acquiring this week… 🙂

In genuine language of the PC world, they only say that they are starting to work on it, that there is a beta, that they cannot say when it will be … but that they want us to know.
