Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps now available for all Android smartphone users
If you’ve been itching to edit your Word documents or PowerPoint presentations on the go, you’ll be happy to know that Microsoft has finally added support for Android smartphones to its Word, Excel and PowerPoint applications in the Google Play Store. Microsoft made beta versions of the apps available for smartphones last month, but users could only access them if they signed up for the Microsoft Office Preview. Now all users have the opportunity to edit important documents on the go.
These apps aren’t as feature-filled as the tablet versions, which launched back in November, but they’ll get the job done if you need to make a quick edit on the go. Also, the new versions of these smartphone-friendly apps now include support for cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive and Box, which will likely make many users happy.
Not sure if you want to make the jump from Google Docs to Microsoft Word? We took a look at Microsoft Office for tablets a few months ago, and you can check out that video below.
If you’re interested, all three apps are now available in the Google Play Store for free.
