The Microsoft Word Viewer is no longer available for download and will no longer receive security updates. To continue viewing Word files for free, we recommend installing the Word mobile app or storing documents in OneDrive or Dropbox, where Word Online opens them in your browser.

For the Word mobile app, visit the store for your device:
Google Play
iTunes
Microsoft Store

The newest version of Microsoft Office eliminates the need to use a special viewer for Word documents.
