Microsoft is entering the ranks of Android phone makers, so it's time to look at what's happening with the Office mobile suite. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook and many more mobile applications are available in Google Play and Apple App Store, but sometimes they may seem overly extensive and varied. Of course, for advanced users this is not a disadvantage (quite the opposite), but so-called For a typical client, the number of applications can be dizzy. Microsoft seems to be preparing an answer to these needs – it is unification.
This year, Microsoft announced the extension of partnership with Samsung, as a result of which selected applications and Microsoft services are pre-installed on Samsung Galaxy Note10 phones. It is not, however, that Samsung pre-loads Word, Excel or PowerPoint devices. Instead, it is pre-installed "Microsoft Office Mobile". This is a single application that Galaxy smartphone users can Download from the Galaxy Store or use the pre-installed version. This application allows users to view documents and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. It is currently not available for other Android devices and cannot be downloaded from the Play Store. To gain access to more advanced features, users can purchase an Office 365 subscription. This will allow you to use fully functional, separate Office applications. Okay, but how does it relate to Apple devices?
The unified Office Mobile application is reportedly developed under a code name Unity by the Microsoft team in India. It should be much smaller and more handy than separate Word, Excel and PowerPoint applications offered in the Play Store. Interestingly, Microsoft Office Mobile will also hit iOS devices, although it may be difficult for the giant to convince Apple to pre-install it. There is also no doubt that Microsoft will pre-install it on phones Surface Duo with Androidthat will hit the market next year. What about the Windows version?
A year ago, Microsoft confirmed that Office mobile applications are no longer developed for Windows. IOS and Android versions remain the company's priority in the mobile segment, while Win32 applications and browser versions in the Windows segment. Microsoft does not offer any unified Office application for Windows devices, but at the end of last year it released a new Office application that can be treated as a launcher. It replaced the previous My Office application and is used to launch individual applications rather than to work directly with documents.
Perhaps the "windowed" Office Mobile will come alive thanks to Windows 10X, a new system designed for two-screen devices such as Surface Neo. On the other hand, it is not so sure, as Windows on ARM has the ability to run classic Win32 applications and a regular Office launcher may be enough for it.
