According to the latest documentation, Office Pro Plus version 1910 on Windows should natively support AIP:

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/rms-client/use-client#compare-the-labeling-clients-for-windows-computers

We thought that the new native Office Pro Plus client built-in labeling function would at least mirror the Unified Labeling client - but from this chart it appears we're going to have to explain to customers three different potential clients for them to use.

When will we be able to suggest that, for most modern uses, folks can simply use Office?

    Some of features available in AIP requires AIP Plan 1 or Plan 2 licenses, and some features are different between classic and unified labelling (eg. HYOD), so for specific scenario admin should deploy proper AIP client to be properly used according to user requirements.

    At the moment, what you note above is true - there's a limited subset of functionalities supported by the native Office integrated client. There should be some news around this at Ignite next week, but my guess is it will take few months (hopefully not years) to get the remaining features.
