Microsoft Details Their Support for iOS and Android

Three years ago I was asked the same question pretty frequently – by both customers and media. At the time, it was a legitimate question, but today it comes up very rarely. The question was: “Is Microsoft committed to supporting the Apple and Google platforms?”

The frequency of that question changed dramatically on March 27, 2014. On that day we announced and released Office on the iPad. The Office mobile apps on iOS are simply beautiful, incredibly user friendly, and a clear signal of just how committed we are to empowering users to achieve more on any device.

Every once in a while I still get that question, but by now it’s pretty rare. What I hear slightly more often, however, is one of the EMS competitors questioning Microsoft’s commitment to all platforms. Raising this question is a classic FUD tactic. Getting to the bottom of it is pretty simple: Any examination of what we’ve put into the market over the last 2+ years makes it impossible to mistake our commitment to ensuring that users can achieve more on any device and any platform.

With all of this in mind, consider a few data points about how Microsoft is working with those other platforms:

  • There have been more than 400M downloads of the Office mobile apps on iOS and Android.
  • There are more than 30M active users of Outlook on iOS and Android – and it is the highest rated e-mail app in those stores.
  • Within Intune and ConfigMgr we are managing millions of mobile devices – 50% of the devices are iOS and 25% are Android.
  • A quick scroll through the archive of this blog shows a heavy emphasis on iOS and Android.
