You can get the Office apps Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook for free on the iPhone and iPad. But if you have an iPad Pro you have to subscribe to Office 365 in order to be able to create and edit files. This is because Microsoft assumes that if you are using a device with a screen bigger than 10.1 inches you are using it for professional purposes. These Microsoft business people became really smart; didn’t they? Thank you Apple for the less greedy apps like Pages and Numbers.

Office Online is NOT full-featured. Libre Office will do anything that MS Office can do.

I would like to ask that , office online free for how many days or month or year ?
Karl Lehtonen (3 months ago)
geez, if all the options lack features 'people won't miss', then just use libreoffice without any hoop jumping.

I still use the Office 2k that came with my old Presario desktop. Don't know what these newer versions have that 2k doesn't.

I use Kingsoft office, it is totally free and far better than Windows Office as it resides on your desktop or laptop, not online where it can be accessed by others. WPS or Kingsoft Office is my go-to program because I can use it fully even when there is no internet connection. I have a copy of Windows Office that I own bought years ago and still does what any word processing program can do, with out being totally reliant on having an internet connection. There is zero reason that a word processing program needs to be accessible by others online or off. Always make sure what you use can be used when there is no connection to the outside world and resides solely on a system under your full control.

1 good way to have office: type "office 365" in eBay and you will find office in 2-5$ now that's CHEAP. I bought and it works, I'm super happy. if you don't need the functionality of office or you just need the basics then you have wordpad(its enough for most users anyway) free in windows, just type it on search and you will find it. glad I could help.

In my opinion, MS Office is still the best on the market. Tried Libre, I kinda dislike the appearance. Now downloading Open Office, I hope it looks as nice as the latest MS Office
Heaven Piercing Man (2 months ago)
Libre is a fork of Open, started back when Oracle let Open stagnate, so they aren't much different. Open is now ran by Apache though. Another option you may like is Kingsoft WPS.

A 30-day free trial doesn't sound like much time to get familiar with the product, apart from Word. Too bad MS scrapped MS Works (for home use) that used to be pre-installed with Windows.

Turns out my university did buy license for its students and faculty members but they never told us about it, maybe they did, I didn't pay attention. They announce a lot of stuff on the official university site, not all of us keep track of all that stuff. Downloading the full legit retail version of Microsoft Office for free now, thank you for making this video :)

You can also use Open Office as an alternative to Microsoft Office.

Microsoft free to scholars is *heroine marketing* tactic. If you are in to word processors, get *libreoffice* for free. I use *texlive* for free and never word processors. *Tex* contains professional typesetting conventions as defaults inside macros.

Yeah me too, I bought (rented) it then I did not renew. It would not permit me to do anything but print out my xl or doc files. No copy and paste to other systems. Wish I had check this out before I "rented" the suite. Lost a bunch of files.

Open office is brilliant and knocks windows into a cocked hat, it FREE and has all the features you want. I simply uninstalled the windows clunker and installed Open Office for FREE.
Definite Solutions (5 months ago)
Yes, open office is amazing, i used it once and i found it really helpful.
makker008 (1 year ago)
Nice story, but reality is totally different of course. Office 365 is a disaster when you are a Mac user. I had office 2011 installed with all my history mails in there ever since 1998. When I installed office 365 the install program ERASED my entire history files. When I called Microsoft support they literally said that they do NOT support microsoft office 365 on MAC and disconnected... Luckily, I have an Apple time machine and could re-install my back-up from minutes before the install of 365. So, Office 365 is 4 times more expensive than buying a normal license AND it erases your data. Which idiot creates an install program that erases the files of previous versions?

Yeah.......no....not EVER giving Microsoft my CC#.....to have them make a "mistake" further on down the line and grab funds from me. I'll stick to LibreOffice and WPS. Nothing else compares to these, the do everything I want them to do and nothing I don't. Those that know?...."know"......those that don't?....."don't".

I tried the ways in the video but they don't work on my Dell Ubuntu 14.04 laptop. What gives? Oh, and I looked up what the alleged features Microsoft office is supposed to have and the preinstalled Libreoffice is already better. Like WAY better. Why would anyone even try to get Microsoft office free or paid so long as Libreoffice is out there?

Just for clarification, when Microsoft made Office available for the iOS, it was one app the featured the suite. This ended in 2015 with the release of the individual apps.
Diane Yaghoobian (1 year ago)
I tried several times with different browsers to d/l for free and was always redirected to the page giving me 3 choices of what to buy starting at $70/year.
TechGumbo (1 year ago)
I'm in the US too Diane. I'm in Louisiana, so at times it doesn't feel like the US. 🙂 I just checked the links again in the description of this video and it is showing me a 1-month free trial. It's weird, I'm not sure why it is showing you a 14 day trial.
Diane Yaghoobian (1 year ago)
It is now a 14 day trial, not 1 month. I'm in the US BTW.
TechGumbo (1 year ago)
The link in the description is for the US version. When you land on the Microsoft page, make sure to click the 1-month trial link. As I mentioned in the video, you will need to give a credit or debit card which will be charged at the end of the trial. You would just need to set a reminder to cancel before the end of the trial.

Is there a way to integrate office online with google drive? Like dropbox opens .docx files in office word online, can i open a .docx file saved in google drive in office word online instead of google docs?
TechGumbo (1 year ago)
That would be complicating things since Office Online natively saves files to One Drive. You can now view .docx files in Google Drive but can't edit with Office Online via Google Drive. You may want to check out free software like LibreOffice or WPS Office which have good compatibility with MS Office.

All the Microsoft ffice items online for my Chromebook and the apps for my iPad and Pixel XL. Done.

I'm still using Lotus millennium edition on my Win 10. The WP is by far the best I've tried - and I've tried many! I have the student Office 2003 (I don't need anything more) which is necessary when I'm working on docs (rarely spreadsheets and I don't need to share databases), and initially found that the change to the X extensions was a pain. But MS actually gives a small program extension which allows your older Office suite to open and save in the new format. It says you might lose formatting and comments if you save as .docx for example, but as I've used it for proofreading - comments, highlights, typing extra words and so on - I've never had it go wrong. Yet! If I'm writing, I use Lotus's WP, save as .doc, and if necessary, open it in Office and save as .docx. That works too. Of course Open Office is free and does everything MS's suite does. If you need to work with pdfs, Cute Writer is a free program (you will need another free program to set it up. It's available via Cute's site) and you save your document by pressing print and selecting Cute. You get a perfectly formed pdf in minutes. It's dealt with a document of around 700 pages without any bother. OO also saves to pdf. If you want to comment or do other editing on the pdf, the latest Adobe Reader gives a number of free features. If you want a full-on pdf program, Cute Professional is a far cheaper version than Adobe's. When I bought it, it was about a 10th of the price. I've used it a lot on systems from Win2000 Pro, XP and now 10. It works on all. HTH and thanks for your info. Office seems to be the ubiquitous suite of choice to work with, so knowing how to update mine free of charge could be very useful!
TechGumbo (1 year ago)
I haven't heard about Lotus in awhile. You should be commended for your loyalty. 🙂 I just looked at CutePDF Writer, it looks useful. Anything less expensive than Adobe is worth checking out.
