  • Office Mobile for Android Phones: Now Available

    Posted by Amy Green

    Yesterday Microsoft released Office Mobile for Android phones, which is available at no extra charge from the Google Play Store for Office 365 subscribers. This means that Office 365 subscribers now have the flexibility to work on their Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from virtually anywhere – using their Windows Phone, iPhone or Android phones.

    Office Mobile is the official companion to Microsoft Office, delivering a “true Office experience.” Documents will look great on your phone, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt Graphics, and shapes. And, even after edits or adding comments, Office Mobile will keep all your content and formatting intact so documents still look professional when you're back on your PC or Mac.

    Office Mobile for Android phones is available in the United States now, with more countries coming on board over the next several weeks.
