[Introduction music]

With Office for Android tablet, I can work on Excel files, PowerPoint slides, and Word docs.

But first, I need to log in. Let me show you how.

I’m gonna use Excel, but keep in mind that it works the same way in PowerPoint and Word.

The first thing to remember is: I don’t sign in with my Google Account.

Instead, I can sign in with my work account, or school account that I use to access Office 365.

Or, I can sign in with a Microsoft account. If you have any of these:

  • Hotmail

  • OneDrive


  • Skype

  • Windows 8

  • Windows Phone

  • Xbox live already have an account.

I happen to have one already, so I’m going to tap: Sign in.

I’ll type my email address... then type my password.

Now I’m ready to create and edit files.
