According to this morning Microsoft blog post the new Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for Android phone available for download. These apps join previously released Office apps for Android tablets to complete the Office experience for the millions of Android users around the world.
You can download Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your Android phone today to get started.
Microsoft said Five weeks ago, we announced the Office for Android phone preview. We are so grateful to our preview users, and with their help we were able to test the apps on over 1,900 different Android phone models in 83 countries. During the preview, we heard from thousands of these users, and over the last few weeks we were able to incorporate a lot of their feedback into the apps we’re launching today. For example, we made it easier to connect to other popular third-party storage offerings like Google Drive and Box, as well as many usability adjustments to make it easier to navigate commands within the apps.
The Office apps offer support for a variety of common tasks, including the ability to review and edit files while on the go, presenting PowerPoint presentations from your phone, and quickly pulling up documents even when they’re stored on competing services like Google Drive, Dropbox or Box. The apps, which will replace the older Office Mobile, require 1 GB of RAM and Android KitKat (4.4.x) or above. Android M is not yet supported.
The apps are free to use provided you have a free Microsoft account, but a number of extra features aimed at power users can be unlocked with an Office 365 subscription.
