Microsoft Services Will Soon Come Preinstalled On Acer Phones And Tablets, Partnerships Expand To 74 Global OEMs

Microsoft is slowly reinventing itself, acquiring interesting companies like SwiftKey and Sunrise Calendar, changing the way people perceive it and its services, and improving its apps across multiple platforms. We've sure seen the effects here on Android Police — there's hardly any week that passes by without us mentioning the company at least once, and that's Android which isn't even its main platform.

With its new and improved services and apps, Microsoft has been trying to find a permanent home on your devices, and what better way to do that than come preinstalled on your phone or tablet? That means it'd be the de-facto office viewer for many users when they come across a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document.

Microsoft Plans To Make Office Add-Ins Available On Android Sometime Later This Year

During this year's Microsoft I/O, excuse me, Microsoft Build Developer Conference, the Windows maker announced all sorts of new Office-related stuff across all kinds of platforms, Android included. Okay, there isn't much information on the Android front, but Microsoft did announce that it intends to bring add-in support to the Play Store's version of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint sometime later this year.

Microsoft Releases An Android Keyboard Just For 10-Key Addicts To Use With Excel

There's a reason you see a little add-on USB 10-key in that one aisle at Best Buy: data entry experts, especially those that work with Microsoft Excel, need those extra keys like Texans need 15-round ammo magazines. Well, 10-key addicts, Microsoft is here to help you nurse your addiction on Android.

Microsoft Releases A Preview Of Office For Android Tablets, And You Can Sign Up Today To Try It Out

There's a pretty basic version of Microsoft Office available for Android in the Play Store, but you won't have much luck trying to install that on anything much larger than a Galaxy Note or Nexus 6.

In the meantime, OfficeSuite has continued to improve, and version 7.3 introduces a slew of new features that add an extra layer of polish to what is already a solid app.

The suite comes in both a paid and a free version, and there's a separate changelog provided for each. The free version comes with better Google Cloud Print support, improved Box integration, and the ability to insert charts in both text and presentation documents.
