A little more than a month after launching an Office for Android phone preview, Microsoft has taken the apps out of beta.
Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are all now live on the Google Play store. Microsoft points out that these are the full versions of its Office apps, optimized for touch on an Android phone. The apps offer basic functionality for free, like the ability to create, edit, and view documents. If you sign up for an Office 365 subscription — which costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year — you can “unlock the full experience” of the apps.
Thanks to its Office for Android phone preview, Microsoft has also included features like support for Box and Google Drive in this full app releases.
Microsoft’s Office apps require Android 4.4 KitKat or higher, but MS notes that they don’t support Android M yet. You’ll also need 1GB of RAM or more.
These Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps could come in handy if you ever need to view or edit documents on the go. And while Google does have its own Docs, Sheets, and Slides app available on Android, choice is one thing that Android is all about, and so it’s good to have other options editing docs on the go.
