Microsoft announced Thursday that its Office is now free on mobile devices. Users won't need an Office 365 subscription to create or edit documents using mobile Office apps. However, users who choose to pay for subscription will get extra features, such as unlimited OneDrive storage, and Dropbox integration. Desktop and laptop users will continue to pay for access to Office. Enterprise customers will still have to pay as well.

The company said also that Word, Excel, and PowerPoint will be available for the iPhone and Android. Previously, only iPad users had access to the full versions of the mobile Office apps.

The move shows Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella vision that the company must deliver services to businesses and consumers everywhere, especially on mobile devices.
