Image_OfficeDevices_500x254Microsoft has released Windows 10 and now you can download it. Also, upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will now be possible in 190 countries. With its release Microsoft also announced the availability of the Office Mobile apps.

Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office Client Applications and Services team stated via a blog post.

The Office Mobile apps—Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote—are built from the ground up for touch, offer the familiar experience that Office customers expect, and deliver the capabilities people need for on-the-go productivity on Windows 10 tablets and small screen devices. Across each of the apps, customers will appreciate full fidelity viewing of their Office documents, knowing edits and changes made on any device will render perfectly across all their devices. Tightly integrated with OneDrive, the Office Mobile apps are fully cloud connected, making it easy to access your documents from anywhere, pick up where you last left off, and co-author with others on documents and projects. Your docs are now automatically saved for you, ensuring you won’t lose a change and that others can see your edits as you work together. And there are new intelligent features, like Tell Me, that make it easier for you to do what you want in fewer steps.


For Word Mobile, all the main formatting commands, styles, fonts and spell check tools are there. Insert tables, pictures, text boxes and hyperlinks and add headers and footers, footnotes and endnotes, everything with touch. Also share and co-author with other editors and utilize features such as track changes and comments as you collaborate.
