After launching their online version of the Office suite a few months ago, Microsoft has now renamed the service to Office Online.

The service can be accessed at and will allow users to access Word, Outlook, Excel, OneDrive, OneNote, PowerPoint, People and Calendar in the browser, allowing users to access features similar to that of the desktop versions, but online.

The service also features a Windows 8-esk style, allowing you to click icons that look similar to that of the Windows 8 dashboard. It will also allow you to access all of your files that have been saved across your accounts, with real-time co-authoring to edit in groups.

Templates for PowerPoint and Excel is also available to choose, with an app switcher menu that allows you to swipe in and out of services with the Office Online suite.
