Microsoft has released a public preview of its new, completely revamped Office app for Android and iOS. A single Office app replaces the previously separate Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps. It also includes the previously-announced features that let users take a photo of a document to create an editable Word document, and use the camera to import table data directly into Excel. It includes dedicated sections for non-Office documents: PDF, Media, and Notes. An Actions panel makes it easy to transfer files between phone and computer, or with nearby phones. It also includes shortcuts to create PDFs and add signatures to them. Anyone can try out the public preview, but it requires extra steps of enrolling in the testing program, a process that requires joining a group for Android, or using TestFlight for iOS.

Tell me this is a joke?

Talk about bloatware. I can understand the convenience but this leviathan/monolith would take too much space. I don’t make PowerPoint decks on my mobile and I sure don’t use OneNote so I hope they keep the options for separate Apps. I know that my opinion mean nil though.
FWIW, it's 337 MB.
