Microsoft Word reaches 1 billion installs on Android

By Xite - July 15, 2019
Crossing another notable milestone, the tech giant Microsoft Word's Android edition has crossed the one billion installs mark on the Google's Play Store after four years of its release.

According to the Google Play Store, the Android edition of Microsoft Word has surpassed one billion installs mark. Microsoft Office’s other properties are also doing very well too. While Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and OneDrive each now have over 500 million installs, the email client Outlook for Android has reached over 100 million installs.

According to a report by Android Police, these numbers aren’t necessarily downloads from Google’s Play Store, as Microsoft is in some agreements with select manufacturers such as Samsung to preinstall its apps on various devices.

The Microsoft Word app lets you create, edit, view, and share your files with others quickly and easily. You can also edit documents attached to emails, collaborate with your team and bring the Microsoft Office features with you wherever you go. The Word app also includes a mobile PDF reader for your phone allowing you to edit documents and read PDFs or e-books while traveling, before bedtime, or wherever you want.

Users can also collaborate by commenting in your doc right next to the text you're discussing, edit documents as a team and stay on top of changes to the text, layout, and formatting. The document editor lets you revert to view earlier drafts with improved version history in Word. The Document editor keeps formats and layouts pristine and looking great, no matter what device you use.
