Microsoft Office available for Android tablets

Microsoft has made previews of its Office suite available for all Android tablet users for the first time.

Microsoft office, Android, tablet, PowerPoint, Word, Excel, document, presentation

Until now it has only been possible to get access with a sign-in and personal invite but Microsoft has now taken the long-awaited step of freely releasing the previews of Word, PowerPoint and Excel.

Android mobile users have been able to write documents and make presentations since 2013 as long as they had a subscription to Office 365 and since November have been making the most of Word, PowerPoint and Excel apps. However, the tablet market has been crying out for the expansion of the software and Microsoft has obliged.

The three apps are available to download now from Google Play for free, although anything beyond the basics will require an Office 365 subscription.
