If you have an Android tablet and would like to try out a pre-release version of Microsoft’s Office for Android tablet app, The Verge reports that the company is looking for beta-testers.

Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that the company is currently preparing a private beta test for the Office Android tablet version, and is accepting participants through a special pre-release program …


Microsoft already has an Office Mobile for Android app for phones, and is expected to launch the tablet app later this year, ahead of its own touch-focused Windows 8 release.

The iOS version, Office for iPad, was released in March, hitting 27M downloads by early May.

You can apply to join the program here. There’s no guarantee your application will be accepted, but it can’t hurt to try.
