    For those of us who occasionally try to be productive on their Android smartphones, you might be happy to learn you can now download the Office for Android Phone Preview. Just yesterday, Microsoft released the Word, Excel and PowerPoint preview apps on Android phones.

    This replaces the current Office Mobile app that is on Google Play, although the older version will still be available during the preview. In order to try out the preview, you will first need to join the Office for Android community on Google Plus. After you have joined and received permission, you can then head to the links below to download each app individually (please note that these links are useless until you sign-up):
    For more info, here's Microsoft's announcement blog landing: Office for Android phone Preview now available - Office Blogs

    Huh, is this really not compatible with galaxy devices? I have a Galaxy S4 and a Galaxy Note 10.1 the Play store says neither are compatible.

    I don't get Microsoft at all.
    I already have the first Office Suite you rolled out. Which honestly sucks. So you come out with an entirely new one? So we have 2 now?
    No, that's not confusing at all.

    UGH...every time I think MS does something really cool, they manage to uncool it. LOL

    Though their are myriad options for opening these kinds of files, the more the merrier. Then everyone can choose their suite of choice. I will give this a shot/

    That's weird. I don't know what to tell you, except that if you hit up the source link you might be able to find it a different way.
