Microsoft Office Mobile for Android now available on Google Play


Productivity junkies, rejoice! Microsoft Office for Android has finally arrived. If you can’t seem to pry yourself away from Microsoft’s Office suite, Office Mobile for Office 365 may be the app you’ve been waiting for. Microsoft’s Office application for Android works on devices running Android 4.0 or higher and allows basic editing of Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.

Unfortunately, the application does have its limitations. As the name implies, Office Mobile for Office 365 can only be used by those who have an Office 365 subscription (personal subscriptions start at $10 per month) and Microsoft does not plan to add Android tablet support. Office Mobile for Office 365 is currently available on the Play Store for US customers, but will eventually roll in 33 different languages and 117 markets across the globe.

Any Office 365 subscribers out there willing to give Microsoft Office for Android a go?

    What, No Tablet support?? and $10+/month ..
    And I was sooo looking forward to having an actual MS Office
    product that would be useful to our staff that use Tablets!
    Just like everything MS seems to do these days!
    Half-Baked and over Priced!

      I guess Microsoft is making the assumption that the few people who have Office 365 subscriptions also walk around with a fancy new Windows 8 laptop/tablet hybrid.

        This is actually a pretty booming business for them. They have a LOT of people using Office 365. $5/mo for the entire family to always have the latest Office vs hundreds of dollars – one is much easier to swallow than the other! I think the cheapest version of Office is ~$140.

          Sorry, it’s $10/mo, not $5.

      Worked fine in a simple Word doc. Trying to find a complicated Excel file now. Any recommendations?

        I have plenty of crazy excel files for work, but if I sent them to you I’d have to kill you.
