New Office Online

Hot on the heels of launching OneDrive yesterday, Microsoft Office team has announced launched Office Online, the re-branded Office Web Apps. Along with the new name, there are also launching a new destination Office.com where you can access all the Office Online products. Office.com is a discoverable and shareable web page so that you can start using Office Online right away. Office Online suite includes the following,

  • Word Online
  • OneNote Online
  • Excel Online
  • PowerPoint Online

How much does it cost? It is completely free. All you need is a Microsoft account, login with your account in any of the Office Online products and your files are automatically saved to OneDrive, so you can share them with others and  work together on documents, presentations, spreadsheets and notebooks in real-time.

The new online experience includes hundreds of Word, PowerPoint and Excel templates so you can go from nothing to something with just a click. Budgets, resumes, calendars and more, all available online, for free at Office.com.

See how others are using Office and Office Online to work better together in the video below.

Finally, new App Switcher.

And finally, with this release you’ll find a more cohesive Microsoft experience, making it easier to share and work together online with Office, OneDrive and Outlook.com.  Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online and OneNote Online are now included in an app switcher which lets you easily switch between email, storage and the files that you are working on without having to navigate in and out of our online services.

Simply choose from the dropdown in the upper left hand corner to access the service you need. A new browser tab will open up for you, and now you can move back and forth effortlessly across the Microsoft tools you use to get things done.

      Agreed, they must have not updated the other properties yet.

      Exactly, this isn’t even the first time that happened, when Outlook.com was first introduced they kept the Hotmail logo there, while later in (then) SkyDrive you already saw the Outlook.com logo, then later they finally updated it, while at the same time the Microsoft Calendar was still the Windows Live Calendar, they literally had 3 different U.I.’s in 4 different services, of-course it’s great to see a preview, personally I hope that the top will just be the standard form. :-)
