Microsoft updates Office for Android with new collaboration and sharing features

Microsoft today announced the general availability of its Office for Android apps, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The new version is 16.0.7301.1013, and the changelog is exactly the same as the Office Insider build from three weeks ago, 16.0.7301.1002.

Here's what you'll find in today's update:

Word

  • Collaboration - front and center: Quickly share your document, and see who’s working on it.
  • Shared with me: Find and open files others have recently shared with you.

Excel

  • Collaboration - front and center: Quickly share your document, and see who’s working on it.
  • Shared with me: Find and open files others have recently shared with you.
  • Improved copy and paste: Move content between Office applications. We’ll make sure it looks great.

PowerPoint

  • Collaboration - front and center: Quickly share your document, and see who’s working on it.
  • Shared with me: Find and open files others have recently shared with you.
  • Fresh new look: A better experience for reading presentations on your phone. Drag and drop to reorder slides and double-tap to edit.
  • Find: Use the Find icon on the ribbon to search for any text in your presentation.

Microsoft tends to update these apps once a month, offering an Insider build earlier on and then a generally available update later in the month. It seems likely that Office Insiders will have something to look forward to within a couple weeks.

If you'd like to sign up for the Office Insider for Android Program, you can do so on Google+. You'll have to join the Office Insider for Android community. Once you're in, you can sign up to be a beta tester on each of the individual apps.

Of course, if you just want to grab the latest versions in the Production channel, you can do so from the following links:
