Microsoft is rounding off a busy month on the Office front with the release of Dropbox support for Android users.

According to an Office blog post, the updates will enable easier editing, access and sharing of Office files from an Android phone. It is also offers the ability to generate and share links to documents in One Drive and OneDrive for Business directly from inside the app itself.

The Dropbox integration for Android is a lot like the integration it announced earlier this month. With it, users can store and share documents in Dropbox, as well as edit Dropbox files and save them back into Dropbox. From there users will also be able to share the files from their Android device.

The upgrades round out Office for mobile devices with Office editing, storage and collaboration capacities available for both Android and iOS operating systems.

Dropbox CEO Drew Houston noted thatDropbox is home to more than 35 billion Office documents, spreadsheets and presentations. These enhancements will give Dropbox access to 300 million Office users.
