Microsoft Office for iPhone, iPad and Android are now free for all. Previously, the apps required you to have an Office 365 subscription, which costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. The suite of mobile Office apps includes Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
Microsoft also announced some big news for each of its different versions of Office mobile apps:

Microsoft appears to be taking the document editing fight to Google, which has long offered its own suite of Office-like apps for free.
