Word, Excel and PowerPoint Office apps for Android smartphones now live in Google Play Store

After just over a month of beta testing, Microsoft has now updated the Android versions of its Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps in the Google Play Store to include support for smartphones. Microsoft previously launched versions of those apps for Android tablets in January, but the expansion to Android smartphones should result in a massive increase in the use of those apps on Google's platform.

In addition to supporting smartphones, the new versions of all three apps now include cloud storage support for services like Google Drive and Box. You can download all three apps for free in the Google Play Store.
