Today I’m pleased to announce the preview for Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android phones.
Today, at our first-ever Ignite Conference in Chicago, we announced new capabilities and solutions from across the company, all of which help IT Pros fuel innovation and transformation within their organizations.

Today, we are announcing enhancements to Office 365 that leverage Delve for easier people-based discovery and greater self-expression.
