Preview of Microsoft Office apps for Android tablets now expanded

Back in November 2014, Microsoft opened up a preview for their Office apps for Android tablet users who wanted to get a feel of what it would be like to have Word, Excel, and Powerpoint on their devices. They've now announced that they are making it easier for interested tablet users to get access to these preview apps by making it readily available on the Google Play Store.

Office Mobile update: support for Dropbox, OneDrive sharing

Mcrosoft has been very generous of late, giving mobile users of their Office Mobile suite of apps more features to enjoy as they navigate Word, Excel and Powerpoint on their smartphones and tablets.

Microsoft OneNote for Android beta program opens

We get that Evernote got here first, and is rightly claiming a majority of the market. Maybe that is why Microsoft is opening itself to suggestions from users as it tests out the Android beta for note-taking and archiving software OneNote, as announced on the Microsoft Office blog yesterday.

Outlook Web App arrives on Android for business users

Continuing its surprising, but not unwelcome, expansion in to Android, Microsoft's Office team has announced the immediate availability of Outlook Web App for Android.

The app is available by way of the Google Play Store and is dubbed Office Mobile for Office 365. The app itself is free to download, however as the name would imply -- it is intended for Office 365 users. Specifically, for Office 365 users with an active subscription.

OneNote for Android adds new features, consistent cross-platform experience

Microsoft OneNote for Android has recently been updated. Microsoft is touting this as being a major update, one they are referring to as version 2, though the app store shows the true version as being 15.0.1827.2300. Putting that mouthful of a version number to the side and we find an update that brings a more consistent experience across devices.
