Why Microsoft is not alone in the fight for the future of productivity
Posted On May 11, 2021
Microsoft’s Office suite is gaining in popularity with its users and is now the most popular application in the company’s office suite, according to data from Net Applications.
Microsoft’s flagship Office suite, Office 2016, which has been around for over a decade, now accounts for more than one-third of all applications installed on Windows PCs.
Office 2016 has seen significant growth over the past few years, particularly in the US, but this data also shows the growth has been rapid in emerging markets like India, China, and Russia.
Net Applications notes that Office 2016 now accounts a third of all Office applications installed in India.
This includes Office 2016 in India, Office 2013 and Office 2010, as well as some other software that has been added over time.
In India, Microsoft’s Outlook is the most frequently installed software in India and Office 365 is also widely used in India by users.
Office 2013 was Microsoft’s most downloaded software, followed by Excel 2007, Word 2007, and PowerPoint 2007.
Office 2010 was the second most popular software installed, followed closely by Word 2007.
This data also suggests that Microsoft Office 2016 is now becoming more popular with its customers than its predecessor.
Net applications notes that Microsoft has also become more popular in China, where Office 2016 still has a high penetration rate.
In China, Office 365 remains popular with Chinese users, and its Office productivity suite continues to be used by businesses there.
China is also one of the fastest growing markets for Office 2016.
Net application notes that over half of all PCs in China now run Office 2016 applications.
Microsoft also saw a strong growth in Office 2013 applications in China during the past year.
In the US and India, Net Applications says that Office 2013 has grown its share of applications installed to around one-quarter of the total applications installed.
Microsoft is still in the middle of the pack in the Windows desktop market, but it is now catching up to rivals like Google’s Chrome OS and Mozilla Firefox OS.
In a recent earnings call, Microsoft CFO Kevin Turner said that Microsoft is now making good on its commitment to Windows 10.
Microsoft Windows 10 is now in over half the desktop PC market in the world, according the company.
Microsoft has been making significant investments in the future.
Last year, the company launched Windows 10 Home, an upgrade for Windows 10 that provides a complete new user experience and more.
The company also announced plans to offer Windows 10 as a service, allowing people to use the new OS on their own devices.
NetApplications notes that this Windows 10 upgrade was a big win for Microsoft, as it gives Windows users a fresh experience that can run on devices like the Dell XPS 15, HP EliteBook, and Asus Zenbook UX550.
However, this update does not include the security and compatibility updates that Microsoft was promised.
Microsoft recently made a major upgrade to Windows 8.1, which includes many security updates, including updates for Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft will also begin rolling out updates for Windows 8 on October 19th.
NetApp notes that in the coming months, Microsoft will be rolling out several new versions of its desktop apps.
These updates include updates for its Office, Word, and Excel apps.
Microsoft Office and Office 2016 are also in the process of updating to Windows Server 2019.
Microsoft released the first Windows 10 Anniversary Update to Windows 7 and Windows 8 earlier this month.
Net apps also notes that the company has been rolling out a few new features to Office for Windows Server, such as Office 365 Workplace, the new cloud-based Office 365 business plan, and Office for Mac, the online productivity suite for Windows.
Microsoft isn’t the only company to make major investments in Office 2016 and Office 2015.
Facebook’s Oculus VR has been adding features to its virtual reality platform for years, but now it’s adding support for the Office suite.
Oculus has also announced a new version of its Oculus Rift headset for the Oculus Rift.
Oculus is also introducing a new Surface tablet called the Oculus Studio, which will be able to stream virtual reality content from the Oculus headset.
Net Application notes that more than half of the desktop PCs in the United States and Europe are now running Microsoft Office for the first time in 2017.
Microsoft currently sells Office 2016 on the Windows Store, which also includes Microsoft Office 2013, Office 2010 and Excel 2007.
