Microsoft introduces all-in-one Office beta app for Android


Microsoft is introducing a single Microsoft Office app for iOS and Android. One of the prominent features of this app is that it has the ability to create PDF files from a photo or convert Word, Excel and PowerPoint files into PDF. I even scanned a desk from a consumer guide of an earphone to change it into an Excel spreadsheet - the textual content recognition was place on.

One can use the unified Office app without signing into a Microsoft account, though signing into it gives one access to their files saved on OneDrive and other benefits.

Microsoft hasn't yet revealed the app's release date, but we'll be sure to let you know when more details are available.

Users can now even create PDF's easily between the three and sign documents, transform tables from a printed sheet into an excel by taking a snap. It puts the tools you need on mobile at the forefront of the experience, and gets rid of everything else.

The new Office app is now available as a public preview on Android. Whereas, on Windows, the company will be focusing on the Win 32 apps and the web versions of its Office apps. That, however, belies the paradigm shift that Microsoft is trying to push to mobile.

Microsoft Office beta even enhances the file sharing between your phone and computer or nearby mobile devices.

Microsoft has launched a new mobile Office app that essentially combines Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Earlier, you can use the apps separately. And if you need to sign one of those PDF documents, you can just use your finger or a stylus. For Android, you can download the app by heading over to and following the instructions.

Microsoft said the new app will initially be exclusive to smartphones, but it plans to bring it to tablets some time in the future (it didn't provide a date).
