A few weeks ago, the first reports that Microsoft plans to open the new Office Web Apps, and change the name of the whole service. Waiting for the change is completed, because Microsoft gave the green light to change, and launched the service under a new name – Office Online.
official blog, Microsoft announced that changes to the cloud service office suite focused primarily on the ergonomics use of network applications, making the “search, share and collaborate on projects is easier.” The company from Redmond admitted that “many of the billion users of Office standard is not yet proved” his counterpart the cloud. Perhaps in this way, granted, too, that the changes and the new name was dictated by the fact that the number of users of the cloud Office’s a lot less than the assumed creator.
Amanda Lefebvre from Microsoft explains that the main motivation to abandon the name of the Office Web Apps were the voices of users who allegedly reported that the presence of the word “Apps” in the name of the cloud package caused consternation. Apparently because of this would-be users because they were convinced that they need to install anything that they need to look for them in a store. Changing the “Web Apps” to “Online” is therefore intended by Microsoft make these perplexities vanish.
Changes were made, inter alia, on the main page Office.com, which greatly simplified the content. The individual components of Office applications online are better exposed and represented, without surprises, with tiles. In addition to basic applications such as Word, Excel, OneNote, or PowerPoint, a user from one place can get into Outlook, OneDrive, Calendar and People. The last four items are also in the drop-down navigation menu (called App Switcher according to Microsoft), which is located on the top side of each of these applications, making the switch to them will be easier. It is not known whether the four will be included as the navigation bars that appear on other websites of Microsoft, and therefore such Outlook.com and service OneDrive.
using the four basic Office programs online, so Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint, you can create new and ready to open the documents. It is worth noting that the interfaces do not change much, so existing users do not have to get used to something new.
