Both Android and iOS users have been clamoring for a version of Microsoft Office on their respective devices for years now, with Microsoft reportedly losing $2.5 billion in possible revenue for every year a mobile version Microsoft Office isn’t released. While Microsoft continues to debate whether or not they should deliver an Android or iOS version of Microsoft Office, Google has beaten them to the punch as they have just released their own alternative, Quickoffice.

Google’s Quickoffice was already available on the iPad, but they just released a version compatible with the iPhone and Android devices. You’ll be able to view and edit Microsoft Office files from all of your devices as well as allow them to be shareable through Google Drive, making it possible for you to start a Microsoft Office in the morning, and finishing it while you commute to work.

Quickoffice is currently available for Google Apps for Business users, meaning if you don’t have a business account with Google, then you’re out of luck for now, but there’s always a possibility Google will open the app up to non-business users later down the road.
