How to download Microsoft Office preview for iOS and Android


Get hands-on with Microsoft Office for iOS and Android today.

Microsoft has unveiled work on a new Office app soon headed to iOS and Android, bundling Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a central hub for productivity needs. Operating as a one-stop-shop for core Office experiences, it retains the full functionality of each application, now streamlined into one interface. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint reside as standalone experiences on Apple’s Apple Store and the Google Play Store, with the app set to eliminate that disconnect.

While Office hasn’t formally launched on iOS and Android, Microsoft has kicked off beta testing via TestFlight for iOS and Google Play for Android. Here’s how to try the new Microsoft Office app today.
