Office Mobile Apps

Continuing along our theme of covering some of the lesser-known features of Microsoft’s Office productivity suite, this week, we’ll take a look at Office Mobile, the mobile device versions of the popular Office suite, available for devices running iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Chrome OS.

All that’s required is a Microsoft Account.

The apps available are the most commonly-used; Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, OneNote and Outlook. Skype and Skype for Business (formerly Lync) are also available as mobile apps.

While there are some features that are not available on the mobile versions of the software, there are some advantages to using the mobile suite:

  • Lightweight mobile apps compatible with a wide variety of phones and tablets.
  • Work anywhere, anytime.
  • Access important documents on-the-go, no need to carry paper copies.
  • Store documents on your mobile device when you have no internet connection.
  • Store documents and files in the cloud using OneDrive or your SharePoint space where available.
  • Store and retrieve files on other cloud storage services such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
  • Send links and collaborate online with colleagues.
  • Share files directly from the app via email or installed apps such as WhatsApp or Skype for Business.
  • Keep apps up-to-date with the App Store or Google Play.

With increasing usage of mobile devices for remote working, you can be sure that the essential features of Office are available wherever you are, by installing these mobile apps on your device.
