ONLYOFFICE offers new Documents versions for Android- and iOS-based mobile devices
RIGA, LATVIA – Media OutReach – 30 April 2021 – ONLYOFFICE “Documents” is a free mobile office app for editing documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and managing them both locally and online. Users can collaborate on docs together with teammates and view, manage and edit local files. This tremendously versatile set of office tools lends itself to mobile use – as an office suite on the go – that is proving very appealing for users in China, where mobility is seen as a premium advantage in a working environment that often requires more than simply sitting at a desk with a standard PC.
A major advantage is that ONLYOFFICE Documents allows easy access to and management of files stored in the cloud. Team members are able to grant different types of access rights: read only, review or full access, providing external access to files via links. With ONLYOFFICE Documents, multiple users can edit the same doc simultaneously, and changes appear as co-authors are typing.
For users in China, language is no barrier. Recent enhancements and updates to the mobile versions of ONLYOFFICE include Chinese and Lao (Laotian) interfaces for Documents under Android 11.0.
