Microsoft has re-branded Office Web Apps to Office Online

On February 19th, Microsoft has announced that “Office Web Apps” will now be called “Office Online”. For those that don’t know already, it is Microsoft’s online version of Microsoft Office where users don’t need the Microsoft Office client installed in order to author/edit Microsoft Office Documents (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint). This was done in order to alleviate the confusion on the word “Apps” in “Office Web Apps”. Office Online can be seen and used by anybody with a OneDrive (formally SkyDrive) or OneDrive for Business account. Be sure to test out the real time co-authoring capabilities as they are a huge time saver!
