Microsoft launches Office for Android



Microsoft’s Office apps for Android tablets can now be downloaded for free. As of today, Word for Android tablet, Excel for Android tablet and PowerPoint for Android tablet will be available in the Google Play store as free downloads. These apps join the highly rated OneNote for Android, as well. If you’re a consumer, just download the free apps from the Google Play store and then log in with your Microsoft Account to create files, print and perform day-to-day editing for free. To access premium features, sign up for an Office 365 subscription. If you are a business or organizational user, the Android tablet is now another device on which you can use Office, logging in with your Office 365 business credentials.

With these releases, we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible as we work to reinvent productivity for a mobile-first, cloud-first world — and today, we are making two important announcements that continue this journey.
