Saving files in Office on Android phones

When you use your Android device, all the changes you make in your Office apps are now saved automatically, so you never have to press the Save button again. Your documents will be saved periodically, even when you're offline. If you'd rather not have Office autosave this file for you: 

  1. Tap File > Save

    The file menu in Word for Android

  2. Move the Autosave slider to Off.

The save menu in Word for Android

  1. On the file menu, tap Save As.

  2. You can save your files locally to your device or save them to the cloud so you can share with others easily.
