Microsoft made the Office Mobile for Android free back in March. However, this wasn’t the full version of the app as it lacked some of the features that we see on the desktop clients. A new report now suggests that Microsoft could finally bring the full version of the app to the Google Play Store in early November. This version will be completely touchscreen friendly and will let you create, edit and modify documents, spreadsheets on the go.
Although Google already offers productivity applications such as Docs, Sheets, Slides etc, they’re heavily reliant on the cloud. So to have something like MS Office which can function independently is surely a great convenience. The full version of the Office app is already available on the Apple iPads, so it’s high time Microsoft brought these nifty apps to the most popular mobile platform in the world.
Bear in mind that editing and creating documents will require a subscription to Office 365, so getting the full version of Microsoft Office could turn out to be a pretty expensive affair. Are you excited about the arrival of the new Microsoft Office on your Android device?
