Microsoft is launching its Office and OneNote applications on Amazon’s Fire tablets today. Both applications are accessible in Amazon’s Appstore, with the Office application combining Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single tablet app.
Microsoft is no stranger to Amazon’s Appstore, having recently published applications like Outlook, Xbox, and Xbox Game Pass for Fire tablets. This is the first time Office has showed up on Amazon’s tablets, however.
Microsoft has basically taken its Android Office application that is as of now accessible on the Google Play Store and modified it to work on Amazon’s Fire OS — a forked version of Android.
Both the Office and OneNote applications will be accessible on Amazon’s Appstore in regions where Fire tablets are as of now sold. Microsoft says it has timed the release of these applications to harmonize with Amazon’s new Fire HD 10 tablet.
The $149.99 Fire HD 10 has a more thinner design, slimmed-down bezels, and better specs, and Amazon is likewise offering a $219 group with a year membership to Microsoft 365 in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Japan.
