Note: See the full post for updates on Office Web Apps.
In just over 100 days since we launched, more than 20 million people have used Office Web Apps to view, edit, and share Office documents from anywhere with a browser and an internet connection. Today we're releasing more new features—based on your feedback (more than 25,000 comments so far)—and we're making Office Web Apps available in 7 more countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Russia, and Switzerland (in addition to countries we're already live in: US, UK, Canada, and Ireland).
Starting today, you can embed a PowerPoint presentation or Excel spreadsheet in a blog or website. With PowerPoint presentations, viewers can page through a mini version of the slides or view in full screen. For example, you might embed a PowerPoint presentation of photos from your last vacation, share slides from a lecture or talk that you enjoyed, or broadcast your knowledge of a special subject.
After this interview highlighting the new features you'll see two examples of embedded files and more info about the updates.
Didn't it seem like only yesterday when we made the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta available? Actually, it's been nearly a year! This is our gentle reminder that the Beta is set to expire on Halloween. For those of you who live outside of North America, that's Sunday, October 31, 2010.
Personally, I've decided that I can no longer live without the Ignore Conversation button in Outlook 2010, linked notes in OneNote 2010, photo editing in Word 2010, using video in my PowerPoint 2010 presentations, or making walls of numbers come alive with Sparklines in Excel 2010.
Read my full blog post for information about uninstalling the Beta, where to get the released versions of Office 2010, and how you can test-drive some of the programs a bit more if you need to.
A few weeks ago, we announced the new Office for consumers, including the all new Office 365 Home Premium, Office 365 University for college and university students, and traditional Office suites: Office Home and Student 2013, Office Home and Business 2013 and Office Professional 2013. Since then we've received questions about the number of installations people get with the traditional Office suites, transferability, and how they compare to Office 2010. With that in mind, we want to offer some clarity on the matter, to help customers make the best purchasing decision.

Welcome to the Office Next blog. I'm really excited to kick off this conversation and connect you with the engineers who are building future releases of Office-here, they'll discuss the improvements we make, the designs we choose and the data and feedback that inform our decisions.
A common problem with email searches is that they can return too many results. For example, entering someone’s name may return matches where the name appears in parts of the message’s body even though you meant to look for messages from that person. It can be also hard to enter other criteria to help narrow your search, such as whether it has an attachment or that it has a particular category applied. Wouldn’t it be great if you could specify these parameters easily and get a better set of results - finding what you want even faster? Outlook 2010 makes it easy!
