The best Android apps for collaborating with co-workers


Working together sure isn’t what it used to be.

These days, you don’t have to be in the same conference room — or, heck, even time zone — to work side by side with co-workers. Thanks to the variety of top-notch collaboration tools for our ever-connected devices, you can edit, organize, and communicate with anyone as if you were sitting right next to them, no matter where your corporeal form resides.

And you don’t even have to be perched at a computer for that to hold true: With the right set of Android apps, you can put the power of collaboration into your pocket — ready to jump into action anytime, anywhere.

These are the best Android apps for effective and efficient collaboration, broken down by what they’ll help you do.

Collaborate on documents

Google Docs or Microsoft Word

For years, Microsoft neglected Android, with app offerings ranging from “barely usable” to “entirely nonexistent.” Even as recently as 2017, when the company first started taking Office for Android seriously, the software’s real-time collaboration feature was vexingly clunky and inconsistent.

Today, all of that is history. Microsoft Word on Android is now a delight to use — and its multiuser editing system is smooth as can be, with real-time changes and inline commenting fully functional across multiple platforms.
