Microsoft has launched Office Store, a new feature similar to the Windows Store, in a bid to 'integrate the very best of the web with the powerful features of Office and SharePoint'.

Designed to operate with Office 2013, the Office Store offers easy access to plug-ins and extensions that add new functionality to the productivity suite.

"Users can learn more about apps in the store (and read reviews), acquire (or buy) them, and start using them straight away. All apps that are listed on the Store get extensively validated so users can trust them", Microsoft posted on its official blog.

Anyone with a Microsoft account and the preview version of Office, SharePoint or Exchange can download these apps.

The new app store also allows app developers to build apps and list them on the Seller Dashboard.
