Free Microsoft Office for Android, iPad and iPhone
Microsoft returns to give us a big surprise. Its suite of Office Mobile for iPhone, iPad and Android will be free. They also come applications for iPhone, Android tablets and updating iPad apps.
The office suite Microsoft Office for iPad, iPhone and Android is free starting today. The announcement will miss many, as a very different style of Microsoft strategy a few years ago. Microsoft wants people to continue to use Word, Excel etc.
You will not need a subscription to Office 365 for editing documents or save them to the cloud. The move comes just two days after announcing its partnership with Dropbox.
Not only that, Microsoft has taken a big step to bring Office to all mobile users . Office hit the Android tablet, plus Word, Excel and Power point for iPhone and upgrades to existing Office applications for iPad to ensure consistency between them.
Consumers can use the free Microsoft Office, but Microsoft will not extend this strategy to the commercial sector and an Office 365 subscription will be required to edit documents stored on Dropbox for Businesses or OneDrive. It is already clear Microsoft’s strategy, which is the main strategy that is being adopted in general. Model freemium subscriptions for pro users . A great move and I think it necessary to Office continuing to lose ground. Great job on the new Microsoft ads with the latter.
