MANILA, Philippines - Citing “several sources close to Microsoft’s plans,” The Verge wrote on Wednesday, November 7, that the company has plans to release Android and iOS versions of Microsoft Office come early 2013.
Office Mobile will be released as free apps that allow users to view Excel, PowerPoint and Excel files on their mobile devices after signing in with a Microsoft account.
Basic editing functions will be enabled with a purchase of a Microsoft 365 subscription, and iOS users can purchase the subscription using the app itself.
Microsoft previously confirmed the existence of Office for Android and iOS last month but did not reveal details regarding a release date. - Rappler.com
