Office comes to Android phones

Microsoft has released Office Mobile for Android phones — though not tablets — in the U.S.

Like the version of Office Mobile for iPhone that Microsoft released in June, the app is free but using it requires a subscription to Office 365.

The app, which is available in the Google Play store, allows users to view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on their smartphones.

The app is expected to be available in more countries over the next several weeks, according to Microsoft.
