There are two ways to get Office on your Android phone or tablet:

You can install the new Office mobile app that combines Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single app, and introduces new mobile-centric features to view, edit and share files without the need to switch between multiple apps. Learn more.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Tap from your mobile device to download the Office app

Or you can install Office apps individually:


Tap from your mobile device to download Word
Tap from your mobile device to download Excel
Tap from your mobile device to download PowerPoint
Tap from your mobile device to download OneNote

Note: Using a Chromebook? You can install Office mobile apps for Android on your Chromebook if you have the Google Play Store or use Office Online if you have the Google Web Store.

Use the Office mobile apps to work from anywhere, just sign in with a free Microsoft Account or a Microsoft 365 work or school account. With a qualifying Microsoft 365 subscription, you'll have access to the app's extra features.

To learn how to use your Office mobile app, see Microsoft Office mobile.

Tap the service where you want to view your files. For example, to view Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents, tap:

  • Open > OneDrive - Personal where you store personal documents

  • Open > OneDrive - <your business name> where you store your work or school documents

You'll see the list of files you saved to OneDrive or OneDrive for work or school. The type files you see are specific to the app you opened them in. For example, if you opened the Word app, you'll only see Word documents; if you opened the Excel app, you'll see Excel spreadsheets.

To view any OneNote notebooks you saved to OneDrive or OneDrive for work or school, tap + Open Existing.

Note: To use the extra features in the Microsoft 365 apps, you must sign in with the Microsoft account or work or school account associated with your qualifying Microsoft 365 subscription. For a list of qualifying plans, see What you can do in the Office apps on mobile devices with a Microsoft 365 subscription.
