However, if you are interested in how to find the MS Office product key for the 2019 edition and how to perform a Microsoft Office 2019 download, read more below.

 

Office 2019 Release Dates

So far, Microsoft has not given an office release date for Office 2019. All that is known is that preview versions of all the apps will be available in the second quarter of 2018, with the complete release sometime in the second half of the year.

Historically, Microsoft released Office 2016 in July 2015 for Mac and September 2015 for PC. It is likely they will follow a similar schedule for this edition, although there are no guarantees on that point.

 

Perpetual Office or Office 365

A user can get an Office 2019 download in two general ways: through the purchase of a single license in a perpetual edition, or through upgrades using Office 365.

A perpetual Office license is the traditional sort that most users are familiar with, in which Office is purchased once and will remain active indefinitely. The most common perpetual versions of Office 2016 (and likely 2019) include:

  • Home & Student for PC

  • Home & Student for Mac

  • Home & Business for PC

  • Home & Business for Mac

  • Standard for PC

  • Standard for Mac

  • Professional for PC

  • Professional Plus for PC

In recent years, however, Microsoft has introduced a different way to get Office, through Office 365. Office 365 is fee-based (charged either monthly or yearly). In exchange for these regular payments, though, there are some impressive benefits. Most suites come with the entire set of programs (not just the core programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote). All users also get 1 TB of cloud space, and crucially, free upgrades when a new edition of Office is released.

Some of the most popular Office 365 editions are:

  • Personal—The whole suite of programs for one user: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, and on PC, Publisher and Access.

  • Home—The whole suite of programs for up to five users on five devices

  • Business—The same as Home, but with a business focus

  • Business Essentials—Online programs designed to aid business communication

  • Business Premium—A combination of Business and Business Essentials

  • Professional Plus—Similar to Business, but for organizations that require more than 300 users

  • Enterprise E3—Everything in Business Premium, plus more security upgrades and a fully functioning Skype for Business. For businesses with more than 300 users.

  • Enterprise E5—Everything in E3, but with even more security upgrades and business analytics. For business with more than 300 users.

 

System Requirements

Before downloading a new Office suite, it is necessary to discover whether a computer is capable of handling the new programs.

The system requirements for Office 2019 have not been released yet, other than a specification that all PCs will need to be using Windows 10 to operate the new suite of programs. It is likely, however, that the requirements will mirror, or be slightly greater than those for Office 2016.

For PC, those system requirements are:

  • 1 GHz process

  • 1 GB RAM for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit

  • 16 GB free disk space

  • A DirectX 9 graphs card

  • A Microsoft account

  • Internet access

For Mac, those system requirements are:

  • Intel process

  • 4 GB RAM

  • 6 GB free disk space

  • HFS+ hard disk format

  • 1280 x 800 screen resolution

  • OS X 10.10 or later operating system

  • A Microsoft account

  • Internet access

Again, these are not the definite requirements for Office 2019, and it is best to assume more will be required to run the more advanced suite. These, however, can act as a guideline until more information has been released.

 

What Is a Product Key?

All Office downloads come with a product key that allows for the download to be accessed and installed. To find your MS Office product key for the 2019 edition, simply look in your confirmation email for a 25-digit number. Keep this number handy for any downloading and installation.

 

Installation Instructions

While the exact installation instructions have not been released for Office 2019, they will likely be similar to those for Office 2016. If you purchase or already have Office 365, Office 2019 should install automatically.

The download instructions for Office 2016 for PC are:

  1. Go to www.office.com and sign in with any Microsoft account (Outlook, Hotmail, X Box Live, Skype, etc.) or a work or school account (if the product was purchased that way). Make sure this is the account associated with your Office purchase.

  2. Go to Install Office and Install from a Microsoft account or Install Office Apps and Office 2016 from another account

  3. Download the file and then open it

  4. Installation should be automatic, when the completion message pops up, click close.

  5. Start an Office application and accept the license agreement

  6. Use Activation Wizard if activation wasn’t automatic

The download instructions for Office 2016 for Mac are:

  1. Follow steps 1-3 in the PC instructions above

  2. Go to Downloads and open the Microsoft_Office_2016_Installer.pkg file

  3. Follow the installation instruction guide

  4. Enter your login name and password to finish installation

  5. Close the installer and open an Office program. Click What’s New to complete activation.
