Joining Office Insider on Mac Ventura

New Contributor

I'm hoping y'all can help me out here - how do I join Office Insider on Mac?

The official guidance on how to join Office Insider on Mac is somewhat outdated -

"Help > Check for Updates" is no longer how updates are managed for Office on Mac. They are now managed through the Mac App Store. At least, that's how I've installed the apps and manage my updates.

I'm really craving some of the features that are only available to Insider users so keeping my fingers crossed there's a solution out there someone can help me out with.

@DisapprovingCorgi It still is. You just have to download the installation package from instead. Maybe uninstall the Mac App Store versions first. Or just use the direct link:

Thank you! Installing directly from office sorted this out.
Thanks for the assistance, @Sagrido.

We're working to update the join instructions to make it clearer that you can't get Office Insider builds if you installed from the Mac App Store.
