Google today announced it is making Quickoffice free for everyone. That means Android and iOS users can edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go without paying a dime.

You can download the free versions now directly from Google Play and Apple’s App Store. The only requirement is that you sign in with your Google Account.

Oh, and if you do sign in to your Google Account from either of the new apps by September 26th, Google will give you an extra 10GB of Google Drive storage for free for two years. It’s not even October, but Google is clearly in the spirit of giving.

Google acquired QuickOffice back in June 2012. At the time, QuickOffice offered native apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Symbian. Symbian can be of course ruled out, but it makes sense for the company to support both Android and iOS.

As we’ve said before, however, Windows Phone and BlackBerry users are out of luck. Google is simply not interested in supporting either platform. Meanwhile, you can bet it will continue to improve Quickoffice for Android and iOS.
