If you want the comfortably familiar sight of Microsoft Office on your Android phone then there is some good news for you.
The new Office app just launched by Microsoft gives Android users the chance to use Word, PowerPoint and Excel on their mobile devices. However, there are some limitations that mean that only about half of all current Android phones can use this software.
Tough Minimum Requirements
The Microsoft Office app is free to download but you need to have a device with at least 1GB of RAM in order to use it. You also need to have a minimum of Android 4.4 Kitkat, as anything older won’t run this app.
The mobile Microsoft application was only revealed to the world just over a month ago but now it is available for downloading in the Google Play Store. With so many users’ phones failing to meet the minimum requirements it seems that a lot of people will need to stick with Google Docs a bit longer.
Touch sensitive menus and bold colours are the order of the day. You can also choose to share your documents easily through Dropbox or One Drive, as well as an email attachment. Of course, you can also review and edit documents on your mobile, as well as run PowerPoint presentations on the go.
While it is free to download, if you have an Office 365 subscription then you can also access a number of additional features.
The new Office app will be getting pre-loaded onto new devices from Samsung, Sony, LG and other manufacturers.
