Microsoft introduces new unified Office app for Android and iOS

Microsoft has announced its unified Office apps for Android and iOS. The all-in-one, Microsoft Office app, includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. So there will be no need to download each app individually.

In a blog post, Bill Doll from Microsoft noted:

The Office app provides a simple, integrated experience that puts the tools you need for working on a mobile device at the forefront of the experience. We started by combining the existing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint mobile apps into a single app. Doing so brings all of your Office documents together in one place, reduces the need to switch between multiple apps, and significantly reduces the amount of space used on your phone compared to multiple installed apps. We then added new capabilities that harness the strengths of mobile devices, such as the camera, to enable you to create content in uniquely mobile ways. Finally, we added a new Actions Pane that helps you accomplish many of the common mobile tasks you need to do all from one place.

Microsoft integrated the phone camera with the app to convert photos of documents and tables into Word and Excel files. Even you can import pictures for PowerPoint presentations from your camera. The unified Office app also comes with an Actions Pane that assists you in completing everyday tasks such as creating PDFs from documents or photos, scanning QR codes, signing PDFs with your finger, and file transfers.

The new Office app is already available in public preview for Android that you can download from here. However, the iOS public preview is available through Apple’s TestFlight program and limited to the first ten thousand users only, which was already reached on the first day, and now it is not available to any new users. Moreover, for now, the app is only available on phones, but in the future, it will be extended to tablets.
