Microsoft releases its unified Office app for Android

Microsoft releases its unified Office app for Android”

At the time, the app was only available to Office Insiders as a preview, and Microsoft had only started testing it with a small group of users. But, there is a catch. Although Microsoft has built a fantastic tablet experience across the standalone Office apps in the past, the new Office app doesn't yet have a UI optimised for tablet devices.

This new all-in-one app is reminiscent of the previous Office mobile apps that Microsoft released for iOS and Android years ago. Under this app, users could access all Docs, Sheets, and Slides, which are similar to Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps of Microsoft.

Microsoft is known for their suite of apps on app stores that are related to their services.

"The Office app combines the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps you know and rely on, with new capabilities that harness the unique strengths of a phone to create a simpler, yet more powerful Office experience on the go". You can't even use it in landscape mode. Google and Apple quickly pulled the app from their respective stores while they investigated the accusations.

According to the U.S. officials familiar with the classified intelligence assessment, the app that works like Signal or Telegram has been downloaded millions of times on Android and iOS devices in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America.
