Microsoft rolls out final version of Access apps for Office 365 customers

Microsoft has killed the preview tag on Access apps for Office 365, announcing today the general availability of the product. On top of that, Access app creators can now sell their apps in the SharePoint Store.

"If you test out Access apps, but are waiting to use them in a production environment, you can now move full speed ahead. Customers can now create, share, and use Access apps with full confidence and the same level of guaranteed availability as the rest of Office 365," Microsoft stated in an official blog post.

Access apps are now available to those on Office 365 Small Business, Midsize, Enterprise, and Education customers. Office 365 Government customers will have to wait a bit longer as Access apps are still in preview. General availability of Access apps for Office 365 means the following:

  • Access apps are covered by the standard Office 365 SLA and compliance level.
  • Access app creators can now sell their apps in the SharePoint Store.
  • Access apps are available to all users, including Office 365 subscriptions where the administrator has disabled preview features since Access apps are no longer in preview.
