Great news for all Office 365 users who enjoy the luxury of immediate accessibility: Office Mobile is now available for Androids and iPhones! This is a unique benefit for Office 365 subscribers, and a huge plus for working on the go! Office Mobile is free to subscribers and will provide a wide array of services allowing you to open, edit, and save documents from virtually anywhere. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and to use it, you need a qualifying Office 365 subscription (including Office 365 Home Premium or Office 365 ProPlus).
Here’s a quick look at the awesome features of Office Mobile!
1. Responsive Design
Documents in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint are easy to edit and look great on your phone. Office Mobile supports Smart Art, charts, animations, and shapes so each presentation and document is true to form when being viewed or edited on your phone.
2. Instant Accessibility
All of your documents can be easily accessed from the cloud using SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro. On Mobile, you’ll see the list of documents that have been recently opened or edited on your computer in the Recent Documents panel. You can also view and edit documents you receive via email. Now, that’s convenience at its best.
3. Work Efficiently
Office Mobile has been optimized for phone screens, so you can work on your phone but still have the efficiency of a computer. When reviewing Word documents, Review Reading takes you to the exact point in the documents where you left off on your PC so you don’t have pages and pages of scrolling to do. The new Slide Navigator lets you browse through PowerPoint presentations fast while Speaker Notes help you practice on the run.
4. Built-In Sharing
Edit documents and share them right from your phone. You can review comments in Word and Excel documents on your phone and add your own. When you’re done, you can save the file back to SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro or just send it as an email attachment.
