Android users may be interested to hear that rumours are circulating indicating that Microsoft is very close to launching the highly anticipated and long-awaited touchscreen friendly version of its Office for Android.
The fully featured Office for Android app has been a long time in development but next month users might actually see an official launch from Microsoft, that will enable Android users to finally get their hands on the full range of Office features created by Microsoft.
ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley has leaked the information after being approached by an unnamed source who revealed the news.
“Microsoft is expected to release its Office for Android tablet offering soon, possibly in early November 2014, my contacts are saying. The company also is expected to disclose timing and possibly a public preview of its next Office for Mac release very soon, as well. Alleged screen shots of the next Office for Mac’s Outlook client leaked earlier this week. The latest rumored release target for the next Office for Mac is early 2015.”
Unlike the already available Microsoft Office for Android applications that are available for free, the new version will provide Android users with all the features and functionality that both Windows and iOS users enjoy.
Earlier this year during March Microsoft released full versions of its Office apps such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel on to iOS for Apple’s iPad users. Hopefully Android users will be able to enjoy the same functionality sometime next month.
