The new OneDrive isn’t the only renamed service to launch this week. Office Online is the new name for Office Web Apps. It brings a few visual changes as well, including a new link bar to each individual app.
Today we are making two changes. First, we’re renaming Office Web Apps to Office Online so you know where to find our free online experience. We heard from customers that the inclusion of Apps in our name was confusing. Are they something I install? Do I go to an app store to get them? No, to use them all you need is a web browser. Ah! You say. So it’s like Office, online. Yes, exactly. Office Online.
