In case you missed it, Office Web Apps, Office 365's online document editing suite, has now relaunched as Office Online.
Since many of our clients use Office 365 and Office Online, we thought we'd give a quick review of how Office Online has improved since its inception, using Word Online as our testing bed.
Of course, we cannot look at Word Online without considering Word 2013. Word Online's messaging is that it is a companion to Word - a tool to make 'quick edits', rather than a deep and feature-rich document editor you'd want to spend a long time on. This used to be acutely apparent, but thanks to a magnitude of updates Word Online now finds itself far more feature rich, and in some ways even superior to its desktop client equivalent.
Let's look at three of Word Online's features in more detail:
Overall, while it's a little disappointing that some features aren't present in Word Online, the service has clearly come on in leaps and bounds and its fantastic improvements make us very optimistic about its future.
