Microsoft's Office app, which combines Word, Excel and PowerPoint in one handy bundle, is now available to download from the Google Play Store.

Earlier today, 9to5Google reported about Google's decision to take down the app from the Google Play Store.

China reports 1,886 new virus cases, death toll up by 98
The death rate for those confirmed cases has been 2.3 percent - 2.8 percent for males versus 1.7 percent for females. The Health Ministry said it has now tested 1723 people on the ship, which had about 3700 passengers and crew aboard.

According to the U.S. officials familiar with the classified intelligence assessment, the app that works like Signal or Telegram has been downloaded millions of times on Android and iOS devices in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. According to Microsoft, the unified Office app should be compatible with all devices running any of the last four major Android versions, as long as these devices are equipped with an ARM-based CPU and 1GB RAM or above.

For example, Samsung pre-installs Microsoft Office apps on its Galaxy S models, and offering Word, Excel, and PowerPoint separately has previously been described by many as bloatware. Moreover, there is no support for tablets or Chromebooks as of now, reports Android Police. In addition to offering Word, Excel, and Powerpoint functionality, there are also integrations with Office Lens and Sticky Notes. An official announcement on this isn't yet available, but the Google Play Store listing highlights the goal of this app anyway. You can log in with a personal, work, or school account within the app. Google and Apple quickly pulled the app from their respective stores while they investigated the accusations.
