In June, Microsoft launched the iOS version of Office. From today, Microsoft Office is also available for Android users. However, it’s only for Office 365 subscribers, and is not designed for Android Tablets.
With Office Mobile for Android you can view and edit Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents from your Android device. To do this, you first have to subscribe to Office 365, Microsoft’s online service that gives you cloud storage and other benefits. This makes all of your office documents available in SkyDrive. You can then easily access them from Office Mobile on your Android.
The difference between the iOS and Android version is that you need a 365 subscription before using the latter. In the iOS version, you can subscribe to 365 from within the app.
Office Mobile for Android is currently available from Google Play in the US, and Microsoft states that it will soon be launched in 117 other markets, in 33 languages.
