Microsoft has officially launched its free unified Office app for all Android and iOS users and its available for both plaforms.
The app, called Microsoft Office, combines Word, Excel, and PowerPoint with new capabilities that power your Office needs on the go. It was first released to Microsoft insiders in public preview in November

The Office apps feature these built-in mobility features:
- Take a picture and turn it into an editable Word file
- Take a picture of a table and turn it into an Excel spreadsheet
- Select photos on your phone to use in PowerPoint slides
- Use an Office Lens integration to enhance digital images of whiteboards and documents
Other features allow users to create PDFs from documents in those apps, transfer and share files between your phone or computer or with nearby mobile devices, sign PDFs using your finger, scan QR codes to open links and take quick notes using Sticky Notes.
Users can access and save documents to the cloud via a Microsoft account for OneDrive, SharePoint or a third-party cloud provider.
