I am currently having this exact problem.

Just got of a live chat with Microsoft Support and said that the app was currently only available for Windows Phone and that it had been removed from the Play Store.

He did point me towards this app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pptremotecontrol.android.presenter&hl=en

The downsides of this being:

  • No laser pointer / inking support
  • Contains ads
  • Made by a third party
  • App has not been updated since March 2017
  • & requires extra software for the PC that is presenting

Another solution was to download the APK for the app meaning that you would have to side load it onto your device and also finding a copy that is legit (no viruses / malware).

I am hoping that Microsoft either re-releases the app on the Play Store or builds the functionality into the Powerpoint app for android.

I appreciate you sharing what you found in live chat. I will use your link to find the replacement.  I wasted a lot of time figuring out this was gone.  Nothing on the Microsoft site said anything about dropping availability in the Plan Store. 

When Office Remote came out it was promoted to work on Android and ios.  Microsoft must be in some kind of war with Google over this because it worked well on Android and there was no reason to stop it.  Windows Phone has no market share so Microsoft is not being real logical about this.  As a trainer, there was nothing as good as office remote.

Agreed. I present all the time. Office remote is one of my favorite tools...and unfortunately I figured out it was gone at one of my presentations. Seemed too sudden and there's no trace of it anywhere.

Just search for "Office Remote Android APK" and download the 1.2.0.0 version. Unfortunately you have to "sideload" it into your Android Phone.
