Microsoft Word is a very useful tool on our computer. For millions of users it is a basic program, which they use on a day-to-day basis.

30-day free trials in Word


We can test Word for free on the computer if we want to, for a period of 30 days. A way to know if the program is what we want or need in our case. An email account is required for a free trial. For this reason, this trial period can be extended by using a different email account each time, which allows the program to be on the computer, but without having to pay money for it. It is an alternative that many are sure of, but that is not always feasible.

It has a clear limitation, since we cannot be eternally creating email accounts to be able to use Word without paying money. It is more an option to use a couple of months, mainly if there is a specific task for which we need this document editor. If not, it is something that ends up being problematic.

Even though it has clear limitations, since it is not fundamentally comfortable to use it on the phone or tablet, unless you have a keyboard connected to the tablet. But it is a simple and free way to use this editor in case it is necessary.
