Figuring out how to set up Office on an Android may seem daunting at first. However, it is not too difficult at all. Read this guide for step-by-step instructions.
Setting up Office applications for the first time
Installing Office 365 on an Android Device
Installing Microsoft Office Applications on an Android
Right now Microsoft has two versions of the Android OS. One is designed for devices that run Android 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, or 4.3, and then another for devices that have a newer operating system version.
If you have an older Android than the ones listed here, then perhaps you should consider upgrading it.
The one that is designed for Android 4.0-4.3 is called Microsoft Office Mobile. You can download it by searching for it on Google Play.
Once you have located Microsoft Office Mobile, you can then find out what permissions the application requires. Then, select Install to download the application. Keep in mind that Microsoft Office Mobile will take up 27 megabytes of space so you will want to be connected to a Wifi connection if you have a smaller data subscription.
Installing Microsoft Office for an Android that is 4.4 or later
If you have an Android that is running 4.4 or later than that, then luckily Microsoft has an even better version of Office for you.
However, the three mobile applications (Word, Excel, and Powerpoint) must be installed one by one and separately. This is because it allows you to only download the ones that you need, therefore saving both storage and bandwidth on your device.
Note: Because these Android applications provide only limited Office features, you will need to have a qualifying Office 365 subscription in order to unlock the full Microsoft Office experience.
Another important side note is, the applications are designed to run on devices that have screens that are 10.1” at the most. In the case that you would like to create or edit on an even larger screen, you would have to purchase Office 365.
