This complements the Office Mobile for iPhone release that was announced in June, and means that Office 365 subscribers will now be able to access, view, and edit their Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents from virtually anywhere – using their Windows Phone, iPhone, or Android phones.

As mentioned, to use the app, you need a qualifying Office 365 subscription, including Office 365 Home Premium or Office 365 ProPlus (you can find the complete list of qualifying subscriptions here). Office Mobile for Android phones is initially available in the United States, with more countries coming on board over the next several weeks.
