Many people do a lot of different kinds of document and office editing which can be annoying to switch between applications constantly to get things done. To solve this problem, Microsoft has launched an All-In-One Microsoft Office Application on Android that puts the best of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint under one roof.
Whether people entrust Microsoft or Google with their documents, spreadsheets, and presentation creating needs, they would need to download 3 separate apps for these tasks, as well as potentially their cloud storage app in which they can keep their files.
It wasn’t always this way, as the Google Drive app used to be an All-In-One Core for Docs, Sheets, and Slides on Android, before finally being split up into separate apps, allowing people to install only what they need.
Whereas, Microsoft is not thinking the same way and taking the opposite approach. Earlier Microsoft released Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as separate apps, all of which are now being combined into a single Microsoft Office app. Along with those 3 productivity apps, Microsoft Office for Android includes OneDrive connectivity and support for signing and scanning PDF files.

You’ll also find a few more features in Microsoft Office such as the ability to share files to nearby devices, similar to the Files by Google app, as well as a QR code scanner. However, the all-in-one Microsoft Office app does not include some much-needed features from its constituent apps, like support for landscape devices like Chromebooks and tablets.
