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.

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)

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.


mupdf supports viewing XPS and is free / opensource:
