With the release of LibreOffice 7.6.3, the LibreOffice Viewer app for Android has been made available in the Google Play Store.
LibreOffice Viewer is a lightweight version of LibreOffice for Android smartphones and tablets for viewing Open Document Format (.odt, .ods, .odp) and Microsoft Office (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) documents. It is built on the same LibreOffice technology as the LibreOffice desktop app for Windows, macOS and Linux, so it displays documents in exactly the same way.
LibreOffice Viewer also has experimental editing features that can be enabled in the application’s settings, but are not considered ready for production use. As we’re a volunteer-driven, community open source project, we’d appreciate help to improve the editing support.
LibreOffice Viewer has been available on Google Play in the past, but due to lack of maintenance it was withdrawn in 2020. Since then, more than two hundred changes have been made to improve the app, increase its stability and usability, support current Android versions and better integrate with the system.
Since the beginning of this year, LibreOffice Viewer has been updated to the latest versions in F-Droid. With the re-release of the app on the Google Play Store, LibreOffice Viewer is now widely available to Android users.
