However, they now changed that requirement and now you can install just the Microsoft Office applications that you want and or need. The previous link also provides a buy now link, where you can purchase a Microsoft Office 365 subscription. These instructions were written for a Google Android for the installation of Microsoft Office on Android.

However, you can use these instructions for any Google Android device compatible with Microsoft office and any version of office compatible with the Google Android operating system.
