Microsoft Launches Office and OneNote apps in Amazon Tablet

Microsoft is launching its Office and OneNote apps on Amazon’s Fire tablets. Both apps will be available in Amazon’s Appstore, with the Office app which includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single tablet app.

This is not the first time Microsoft is launching apps in Amazon’s Appstore. It has published apps like Outlook, Xbox, and Xbox Game Pass for Fire tablets. Microsoft has essentially taken its Android Office app that’s already available on the Google Play Store and modified it to work on Amazon’s Fire OS.

Both the Office and OneNote apps will be available on Amazon’s Appstore in regions where tablets are sold. Microsoft said that it has timed the release of these apps to coincide with Amazon’s new Fire HD 10 tablet. The Fire HD 10 costs around $149.99 it has a thinner design, slimmed-down bezels, and better specs. Amazon is also offering a $219 bundle with a 12-month subscription to Microsoft 365 in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Japan.

Amazon announced on Tuesday that it will debut a Fire Kids Pro tablet aimed at users ages 6 to 12. Its existing Fire Kids models are intended for kids ages 3 to 7. The Fire Kids Pro tablet has a slightly more sophisticated look and feels, along with content specifically intended for older users. The tablet comes with access to Amazon’s digital store to download apps, such as Minecraft, Netflix and Spotify. It also allows for voice and video calling through Amazon Alexa devices, a more open web browser experience, new Amazon Kids+ content and a handful of parental controls.
