The Office is now expanding! Microsoft is now collaborating with many Android makers including Samsung, Dell and many more
Most or majority of people in the world knows what Microsoft Office is. If you are a student or a businessman, chances are you have probably used this at least once or twice, from making documents with MS Word or MS Excel to wonderful presentation with the Power Point.
However, the company does not only make awesome software like Office and Windows operating system, they also have a line of smartphones that they have released this couple of years. Though the popularity of the latter is much lower compared to their software because of the contenders they have like Samsung and their famous Galaxy S series phones and Apple?s iPhones.
Recently, Microsoft had announced that they are now forming a partnership with other Android phone makers to push their Office app on many Android compatible handsets and tablets.
Microsoft partners with Samsung and other Android makers for the Office app
Last Monday, Microsoft made an announcement about their partnership with nearly a dozen Android handset manufacturers, according to a report from nytimes. Included on the list of manufacturers they have partnered with is the famous Korean company Samsung. As stated on that report, the Korean company will start rolling out Microsoft Office app on their tablets this first half of the year. But not just that though, they have also cut a similar deal for their Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge handsets. So can we now expect to see the Office app on the upcoming Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge? It?s possible since they have already made a deal about it, but this is just a theory though, we will only know for sure once Samsung starts shipping the Android handset.
Not just Samsung though, Dell was also mentioned on that report from NYtimes. They too will include the app on their tablets and nine other companies will also do the same as said on their website.
With this, consumers will now receive Microsoft Office on their handset and/or tablet as a pre-installed app. You don?t have to download and install it anymore.
