According to sources, Microsoft office 2019 will be released in around September this year but till now the exact date is not declared.

As per announcement by Microsoft’s Jared Spataro on a blog post stated that the new office 2019 preview will include a bunch of updated apps that includes: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, Access, Project, Visio, and OneNote for Windows. He also teased some of the new features coming to office 2019:

Updates include new and improved inking features across the apps, like the roaming pencil case, pressure sensitivity, tilt effects, and ink replay; more powerful data analysis in Excel, like new formulas, new charts, and Power BI integration; and sophisticated presentation features in PowerPoint, like Morph and Zoom.
