Microsoft is working on a unified Office Mobile app

1 min read

A long time ago, when Microsoft introduced the mobile version of the office software, it was mainly the Office Mobile application, which directly supports Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. However, Microsoft later deactivated this comprehensive application and then released separate versions of each component. The functions attached to each component were relatively more powerful. For users, if you install Microsoft Office apps, it will take up a lot of space, and most users may not use the whole Microsoft Office apps frequently on the mobile phone.

In view of this, Microsoft is currently considering reviving the previously deactivated Office Mobile application and integrating Word, Excel and PowerPoint functions. After downloading the app, users can easily browse and even edit some of the documents on the mobile device, but the functionality is not as rich as the stand-alone version of each component. However, this is not a big problem. After all, users can continue to download the stand-alone components if they need it. It is more convenient for users to use such a solution.

According to ZDNet, Microsoft may initially launch Office Mobile for iOS, and the Android version can now use the Office Mobile app.
