Is there a way to open Microsoft XPS documents on Android, similar to the way Adobe PDF documents have "Adobe Reader for Android"? I took a look in the Market but I didn't find anything.

I'm looking for an XPS reader too. Two points. First, Google Docs Viewer supports .XPS files (Getting to know the Google Docs Viewer) but Google Docs Mobile Viewer does not, per my experience and this support page (Viewing files from within Google Docs). I spent time trying because this cached page's article title is

Google Docs Mobile Viewer for Android, iPhone, iPad has Been Released

and has this list of tags that made me think I'd found a solution.

Article Tags:xps Android, xps viewer android, android xps, xps viewer for android, android xps viewer, android xps reader, XPS reader android

Second, perhaps if enough people show interest there will be an XPS Viewer available from the Android Market. I added to the Android Market XPS Viewer Feature Request thread.

this is no longer true, see the other answers – Tao Apr 17 '13 at 12:16

Unfortunately, it does not look like there's support for reading XPS documents on Android products as of yet. But there are nice little utilities, like XPS to Image Converter that will allow you to convert them to images or pdf files viewable on your Android device.

I use Documento - office viewer to open XPS files.

There's an app called EBookDroid

Worth noting: this is open-source (always nice to be able to see what the apps you are installing are doing on your device) – Tao Apr 17 '13 at 12:17

mupdf supports viewing XPS and is free:

Docs Viewer is a free app on the Play Store that you can use to view XPS files and other documents in a big number of formats on your Android devices.
