Excel, PowerPoint, and Word are free downloads from Google Play. Once you have the apps installed, follow along with this animated guide. You'll learn how to sign in, find your favorite features, and use special "swipe and tap" gestures.
To log in to the apps, use your work or school email address that you use with Office 365, or, sign in with your Microsoft account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up for a free one (see the next animation).
Can't sign in? Sign up!
If you don't have a Microsoft account, you can create one. It's easy -- we only ask for two pieces of information: email address and password. Tip: A Microsoft account is free, and gives you all sorts of benefits, including free storage.
