Microsoft has “officially launched” Word, Excel and Powerpoint apps for Android tablets. The apps were originally launched in “beta” last November. Users can access and edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files directly from their Android tablets via Microsoft’s own supported apps. Office apps for the iPad were announced during TECHSHOW 2014.
The apps are free to download. Some features require a paid Office 365 account to access.
Microsoft also announced a preview version of its Outlook email client for Android tablets.
ABA TECHSHOW 2015 will have two tracks dedicated to Microsoft Office applications, a track dedicated to mobile computing, one dedicated to lawyers’ use of iPads in their practice, and a “60 Android Apps in 60 Minutes” session.
