Office Online is a great tool for all your work needs. It is the convenient online version of Microsoft Office that doesn't require an installation. With Office Online, you can manage your documents anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an available internet connection.

Office Online is loved by novices and computer experts alike for its professional look and user- friendliness. The software lets you view, create, and edit documents online and save them to the free 25GB storage space on OneDrive. You have the option to download files to your computer, or you can upload files from your hardware.

A nice feature of Office Online is the possibility of integrating Skype for collaborative work. You can save the documents, spreadsheets, and presentations you created in Office Online, share them with others, and work on them together.

Office Online includes many of the most popular applications for Office like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Sway. Work on your spreadsheets with Excel, write and edit documents in Word, and create presentations in PowerPoint. With the new Sway application, you can create and share interactive reports, newsletters, and personal stories. Just add content, and Sway will do the rest.

With Office Online you’ll have direct access to all your files regardless if they are stored on your computer or online in OneDrive. Work on your files right in your browser, even on your phone or tablet, by using Office Online without letting an installation use up your computer storage.
