After releasing the Office apps for Android tablets, Microsoft has today announced the preview version of Office for Android phones. The new Office apps for Android phones have the same look and features which are available for iOS (iPhone and iPad).
The Office for Android phone apps are modern, optimized for touch and designed for work on the go. Office for Android phones includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
The Office apps combine the familiar look, feel and quality of Office with a touch-friendly experience designed for Android phones. Documents open and render beautifully, with all formatting and content in the right place. In addition, familiar navigation and menu options in the ribbon are placed at the bottom of the screen within reach of your thumbs so you can easily review and edit documents on your phone.
You can create, open, edit and save files in the cloud from your Android phone so you can access them anywhere and anytime you need them.

- Once you join the community, Become a tester by clicking the links to the Word, Excel andPowerPoint.
