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.

Unfortunately, the Android version won't come until Microsoft first gets everything working on the iPad. It's starting with Excel.


Add-ins are another name for extensions, which allow users to expand on an Office app's functionality by installing a third-party add-on. The Office Store is full of them, providing ways to quickly check Wikipedia, pull up LinkedIn profiles, and create fancy charts. Some of you may already have a few favorites on the desktop.
