Microsoft Office Gets a New Look on Android Phones

Microsoft has updated its Android phone apps with a new look and a few new features. The apps are now more in line with the Android tablet version of Office, which were updated in January. From The Verge:

While the tablet versions allow you to get a fair amount of editing done without a keyboard and mouse, the phone editions are really for basic and quick edits. Microsoft is using the same editing interface at the bottom of the display, with options to easily change fonts and styling in Word. For Excel those options are designed for quick cell changes, and PowerPoint is largely optimized for simple changes to slide transitions. Just like iOS, all three apps offer native Dropbox integration to store and open documents, or Microsoft’s own OneDrive cloud storage.

The current Office apps for Android are still just a preview of what’s to come. The full apps are expected to release later this year.
