If you love to work on the go you’re in luck, Microsoft has just announced that the general availability for Word, Excel and Powerpoint for Android smartphones. With the preview announced about a month ago or so, the apps have already been available on tablet and other similar devices for quite some time now, catering to those who don’t want to be tied down to a desktop PC to get work done.
For those who are familiar with the Office suite, you will find the same touch-optimised interface as the tablet versions, but shrunk down to accommodate for smaller screen sizes. Controls are placed at the bottom of the screen as well, so they are in easy reach with just your thumbs alone. So you essentially can toss together a presentation, write a report or even get some charts together while on your morning commute.
You will also get OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and SharePoint intergration so you can save your files and edit them on the cloud; freeing up space on your actual device.
Word, Excel and Powerpoint are already available for download from Google Play alongside already available Outlook, OneDrive and OneNote apps.
