Microsoft has strategically unveiled its Office suite adapted for visionOS just ahead of the Apple Vision Pro launch. The suite includes popular applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Teams, redesigned for seamless integration with the new space computer. Microsoft promises a versatile and powerful virtual environment with AI-driven features from Copilot, transforming the user experience in meetings, presentations, and data analysis.

Microsoft Teams on Apple Vision Pro will leverage the Persona feature, allowing users to present an authentic representation of their faces during video calls, enhancing spatial communication. PowerPoint will offer a customized immersive environment for practicing presentations as if in front of a live audience. Excel aims to revolutionize data interaction with an "infinite canvas" on Apple Vision Pro, providing new ways to manipulate and visualize information. 

Microsoft Word will feature immersive environments for focused document creation with a simplified interface following Apple's design guidelines.

Notably, the interfaces of Microsoft Office for visionOS showcase extreme cleanliness, departing from the traditional PC-like interfaces seen in versions for other platforms. The design incorporates transparency, sidebars, and a clean hierarchy of options, resembling the latest macOS versions. Copilot support and a clean interface aim to enhance user experience in the virtual environment.

While Apple's iWork suite, with the exception of the Keynote app, won't be available natively on the Vision Pro at launch, Microsoft's Office suite promises to fill the void, offering advanced and complete productivity tools from day one. Microsoft's commitment to innovation and adaptability is evident in this announcement, setting a design standard for professional apps in virtual environments. The suite is poised to be available on February 2nd, coinciding with the official release of Apple Vision Pro.
