Microsoft makes Word available on Android phones


Microsoft has released versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint programs for smartphones running on Google-backed Android software.

The apps, which are available on Play Store, are built on a Microsoft strategy to make its applications accessible from a broad array of devices as services in the Internet cloud.

The US software titan has applications which can be used on Android-powered tablets, Apple iPhones and iPads.
“I’m pleased to announce the general availability of the new Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for Android phone,” Microsoft Office team corporate vice president Kirk Koenigsbauer said in a blog post.

Smartphones have become very popular among the youths and business people; introducing this feature will minimize the use of Desk tops and Laptops which were common in the last decade.
