The full name of the software is Microsoft Office Mobile, that’s been optimized for Android handsets. You can access, visualize end edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint files from anywhere, anytime.
The solution offers OneDrive storage integration and the ability to keep working on the documents you recently viewed on the PC, even if you’re on the go.
