The preview of the Office for Android suite optimized for tablets can be tested now by anyone without having to sign up, as its apps can be freely downloaded from the Google Play Store.

Microsoft began to offer limited access to Office for Android tablet preview back in November, but those interested needed to sign up to test the apps. Now the Redmond giant has finally decided to allow everyone to give them a try without having to wait at all.

"Today, we are excited to announce that we are further expanding the preview. We want more feedback from more users to ensure that Office apps work well on a range of different Android tablets before launching the official apps," writes the Office 365 Team on the official Office Blogs. The preview apps support ARM-based Android tablets with screens between 7 and 10.1 inches, loaded with KitKat or Lollipop.

According to the same source mentioned above, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint can be downloaded from Google Play since January 6. The sizes of these apps are as it follows: 125 MB for Excel, 115 MB for Word, and 126 MB for PowerPoint.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
