After a successful preview period, Microsoft today announced general availability of Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android phone via Google Play. The apps offer the same great touch-friendly experience currently available for Android tablet, but thoughtfully redesigned for Android phone. Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android phone join other great experiences we’ve delivered for the Android platform including Outlook, OneNote and OneDrive, and signal our final step in completing the Office experience on Android devices.
Key features of the new apps include:
- ·On the go reviews and edits – users can review documents in full fidelity, read comments and make changes
- ·Presenting from phone – PowerPoint for Android includes the same transitions, animations and design as the desktop version
- ·Quick access to my documents – It’s easy to find documents and it will highlight where the user was last working. Files can be accessed from OneDrive as well as Dropbox, Google Drive or Box
- ·Easy to get – We’ve partnered with over 30 OEMs such as Samsung, Song, LG and more to preload the apps onto Android devices
