Microsoft adds viewing IRM-protected Word and PowerPoint files on Android devices.

Microsoft today published an update to Word and PowerPoint for Android bringing Information Rights Management (IRM) support, allowing users to view IRM protected documents on their devices. If you're not familiar with IRM, it is a way to protect documents from being copied, forwarded or printed by unauthorized users. Once enforced, the document is protected no matter its location because the protection is stored in the file itself.

This update also lets users add a shortcut to their Word and PowerPoint file to the start screen for quick access. Word is also capable of handling "files that were saved in plain text (.txt) format." Microsoft also added a format background feature into PowerPoint that will let users "customize a slide by adding the background color of their choice."
