Microsoft's Android Tablet Apps Lose Their "Beta" Stabilisers

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft has released new versions of its famed productivity triumvirate, taking the the Android tablet versions of Office, Powerpoint and Excel out of their beta phases and releasing them for all to... enjoy.

The apps are free to download, although you'll need to sign in with a Microsoft account and some "premium" features require an Office 365 subscription to activate, but still. It could swing an upgrade to a Nexus 9 on expenses, which is the important thing.

There's also an all-new Outlook app out on Android, too, replacing the terrible old outsourced thing it used to rely upon. [Microsoft]
