Microsoft Office now available for Android smartphones


Microsoft announced Wednesday that subscribers to Office 365 will be able to use a new Office Mobile app on their Android phones.

The new app is available immediately in the Google Play store. And it comes just a few weeks after Microsoft released a similar app for iPhone users who subscribe to Office 365.

The Android app is free to download. But an Office 365 subscription costs $100 a year. For that fee, users can install Office apps on up to five devices such as PCs, Macs, and smartphones.

So far, Microsoft hasn’t created an Office app for tablets.
