Microsoft Office 365

Get started with Office Web Apps in Office 365

Microsoft Office Web Apps are a part of most Office 365 plans. Office Web Apps make it easier for you to work in the cloud because they open Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and PDF documents in your web browser.

You can access your documents whenever you have an Internet connection, from almost any device:

  • Documents stored in your SkyDrive and your team sites
  • Attachments in Outlook Web App
  • Meeting notes in Lync Web App

And sharing documents with others is as simple as sending a link.

When you use the three-dot Open Menu in a SharePoint library, Office Web Apps shows a preview of the document, and provides another Open Menu with commands for viewing and editing the document in your browser.

To get started, sign in to Office and save your document online. Your organization’s plan gives you libraries for storing your documents, or if you have Office 365 Home Premium, you have personal online storage at OneDrive.com.
