Microsoft Word Phone App: Create A Document

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android, MS Office Help, MS Word

In part 1 and part 2 of this series, I introduced you to the new Microsoft Word App for Android phones and gave you a brief tour. If you haven’t read those tips yet, you’ll want to check them out first. Now let’s look at how to create a document and the options you have for styles and fonts.

To create a new document, choose the + sign on the home page.


You can choose a blank document or another template.


Available templates ranged from reports, to resumes to fliers to calendars.


I decided to go with a blank document.


To pull up an 0n-screen keyboard, I just need to tap in the document. You could also use a Bluetooth keyboard with your phone if you want a larger keyboard.


Tap the A icon for formatting choices.


You’ll see the familiar ribbon with standard choices for fonts, colors, highlighting , bold and italics appear at the bottom of the screen.


Swipe down in the ribbon area to see options like bullets, numbering, paragraph formatting and styles.


Tap this icon to see your document full screen.


The Save icon works the same as it usually does and to the right of it is a share icon that lets you send your document via e-mail or other programs.


Tap the menu bar on the top left for more options.


Here you can Open a new document, save, share and even print if you have a compatible printer. You can also print from your PC if you save a document to your OneDrive and open it on your computer later. Remember, any document created on your phone will work with Word on your PC with no formatting issues. (at least none that I’ve ever encountered.)


Click the little gear symbol at the top and you’ll see other options for your account such as user name, online services and privacy information.


I hope you’ve enjoyed this tour of the new Office app for Android Phones. Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

      For a price list you may want to consider using a spreadsheet program. Consider going to and using the free Excel program available there.

        Hi Cynthia,

        As a document specialist, I need to create docs having text, tables, and images. Are these things possible in this Android Word itself? Documents created in regular Office suite pose display-problems if opened in Phones or even in Tablets. So, I too want tips to do them in Android Word itself.
