Microsoft previews Office for Windows 10 phones and small tablets

Windows 10's apps seems to be coming to, well... everything.

Microsoft previewed its work on Office for Windows 10 today, giving a first look at how the productivity suite will look on phones and small tablets. It's a significant departure from what Word, Powerpoint, and Excel currently look like on Windows Phone — but that's actually a good thing. The new apps look a lot more like their desktop counterparts, just streamlined to make more sense for a small, touchscreen device. "They're going to deliver a consistent, highly rich, and complete Office experience," Microsoft's Joe Belfiore said. His demo of the new apps was brief, but the emphasis was on these being fully capable counterparts to Office on the desktop.

This new version of Office is going to be included on Windows 10 for phones and small tablets. Microsoft has increasingly been making Office free to use — that's true of its Office suites on iOS and Android as well — so it's nice but unsurprising to see that continue here, too. That's also why this update has been a long time coming: Microsoft has had smart new versions of Office available on iOS and Android for a little while now, while Windows users have been left hanging. Obviously, the wait continues until this is actually released, but it sounds like the wait is almost over.
