Office 2013 Web apps launched on SkyDrive

Office 2013 Web apps launched on SkyDrive

Back in July when Microsoft launched the trial version of the office 2103 web apps suite for SkyDrive users. The apps were launched in such a way that anyone using the SkyDrive can use the Office Web apps for free and at that time the apps were considered only as a trial product launch.

Omar Shahine Microsoft’s Group Program Manager for SkyDrive, made an announcement today that the Office Web suite apps are now live. However, no words have been made on the changes made to the SkyDrive. The announcement by Shahine was tweeted by him.

Here’s the whole tweet of Omar Shahine for the Office Web apps:

Microsoft previously said that the changes made to the new apps are updated to compile the support for touch screen devices supporting  such types of hardware, improved performance for the web-based device browsers, giving extra support for co-authoring the documents and improved performance for editing the files.

It is expected that Microsoft will introduce the changes made to the apps in the October 26 event and will reveal them with the Office 2103. The event is organised by Microsoft to  market and launch its Windows 8, Surface tablet and Windows Phone 8.
