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.

If you don't already have an Office 365 subscription, a great way to try Office Mobile is to sign up for an Office 365 trial at http://www.office.com/. And of course, if you're using a Windows Phone you have Office Mobile already pre-installed.

Learn more about this news and how to get started with the Android app on the Office 365 technology blog.
