Default Office365

Thought to share this:

Yesterday I received one update to the Microsoft Office 365 on my Galaxy S4.
And this morning I found out that Office 365 on Android as become subscription free for all home users since the update.
[emoji2]That is great news for many users that can't afford the expensive subscription.

I have also read that Microsoft have released Office 365 for ipad.
[emoji37]But they forgot about us, the Android Tablet users.

I decided to try it one more time and I pulled the apk out from my Galaxy S4 and side loaded it on my Samsung Tab 3 8.0 (SM-T310) just as a test, and...
[emoji12] it works like a charm!







Thank you Microsoft.

[emoji41]I hope this news is of any use for anyone in here, in the same way it was for me.

How did you pull the apk (I have the same tab 3 as you)? Where do I look on my phone and where do I install run the apk on my tablet?

[emoji39]No worries.
Despite that I unsuccessfully tried to make Office365 to work on my tab 3 before.

ps:
[emoji33]It might not last for long, since some clever idiotic people decided to post on Microsoft forums about downloading the app from 3rd party app stores and successfully installing it on unsupported devices.
