What you need to know

  • Several Microsoft Office apps have received new icons on Android.
  • These new icons match the new icons on iOS and Windows 10.
  • The updated icons have now rolled out to almost all versions of Microsoft Office.

Microsoft's Office applications have a new set of icons on Android (via OnMSFT). Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote all received the latest icons in a recent update. These icons feature a modern design that fits in better with the sleek look of operating systems in 2019 and also matches the updated design of Microsoft Office going forward.

The icon designs were initially unveiled late in 2018 and have gradually rolled out across various platforms. The main Office applications on iOS and Windows 10 already had the refreshed icons.

With the addition of these four apps on Android, the new icons have now rolled out to the vast majority of the main Microsoft Office apps across all of the major platforms.

Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse (opens in new tab) ($30 at Amazon)

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

AmazonBasics USB speakers (opens in new tab) ($16 at Amazon)

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Razer mouse bungee (opens in new tab) ($20 at Amazon)

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.

  • These updates started happening a couple months ago on my two Android devices, starting with Outlook. I think the rollout was complete a couple weeks ago.
  • Yes, this is old news.
  • I just got the new OneNote and Excel icons today, had Outlook for a little while. Rest of office is still old icons. :(
  • One advantage Android has over Windows: Whitecons to get rid of this icons and get back pure white ones.
