Nadella, while reporting Microsoft’s third quarter earnings call on Thursday, said that the Office apps on rivals’ operating systems are doing quite well.
“We are clearly taking Office everywhere. Core to our mobile first strategy is to ensure that our service end points are on every mobile device, and to that end we have seen continued momentum with more than 100 million downloads of Office on iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets,” said Nadella.
“And, with the release of Outlook on iOS and Android this quarter, updates to our OneDrive applications, and a preview of the forthcoming Office for Mac, we’re making Office available to even more users on more devices.”
In the same call Nadella said “Office 365 Consumer added an average of 1 million new customers per month and we now have more than 12 million subscribers, an increase of 35 percent over the prior quarter.”
In addition to the success of Office and Office 365, Nadella also spoke on the overall success of the cloud “While our commercial cloud business is expanding dramatically, we are also seeing strong growth in
our consumer cloud services.”
