Office 2010 goes public today! A lot of the work we did in Office Web Apps is a part of the Office 2010 release and we are really excited. Last year I wrote about some of the ways Office Web Apps and Office 2010 complement each other.
When we announced our browser support we heard from many of you that we left out Chrome. A big part of supporting a browser is spending the time to properly test our apps in that browser and then fixing any issues we encounter. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve tested Office Web Apps in Chrome and have fixed several issues. If you love Chrome, we want you to use Office Web Apps in Chrome. If you find issues that we missed, use the feedback links in the web apps to tell us about the issues.
Office Web Apps are also becoming a part of Hotmail! Over the next few months more and more Hotmail users will be able to view supported Office file attachments using Office Web Apps. It will also be easy to move attachments into SkyDrive.
Nick SimonsProgram Manager, Office Web Apps
I really appreciate the extra effort! The blogosphere was just sure the lack of support was a dig at a big competitor... it's nice to get confirmation that Microsoft is committed to usability regardless of browser choice. I'd love to see further Chrome support, via plugin or whatever, for opening a web document in the desktop Office suite, etc. It should be possible via NPAPI?
Anyways, big step in the right direction, and a very nice gesture towards Chrome-using Office fans like myself.
Do you know if the orange and grey template from the videos will become standard or available?
I would like to see if you can assist me: I'm using Office 2010 Beta and trying to use communication R2. Can not get to setup screen to add info. When I launch it, it automatically post my Comcast email address but unable to enter password or to use in ANY way. Have been working on this for a week. Very frustrated. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
Michael, I'm not MSFT, but get the heck off the beta for crying out loud. If I were Microsoft support I wouldn't even talk to you until you first did that.
I did see Office Web Apps in my Hotmail account. Pretty cool as well! hope to test them over the coming weeks.
Any thoughts from the Office Web Apps team on the five needed fixes mentioned in this article (www.pcworld.com/.../microsoft_office_web_apps.html)? Personally, I've been troubled by the lack of autosave in Word and the differences for Mac users.
Love your product and happy to hear chrome support is part of your plan. Does this apply to the stock Android browser??
I'm trying to access some OneNote web-saved (to skydrive) notebooks from two Android browsers (the built in browser and Dolphin 3rd party browser) with no luck. I can't seem to open the notebook and see its text. When I click on the notebook it wants to download it and of course there is no native OneNote for android. Same is true for the stock browser and dolphin.
Note: I'd love to EDIT OneNote documents on my mobile browser but at minimum I want to VIEW them.
Is there a requirement for mobile browsers to view Skydrive OneNote notebooks that I am unaware of? Any solutions or workarounds on the horizon?
ps. as an alternate here's what I've been doing - kludgy: I've been publishing PDFs to my dropbox account for on-the-go reference, but of course I have to *remember* to publish and it is read only and has to launch adobe reader, etc etc. If there was a way to "auto backup" to PDF or to a web location that might be a good add in until the web apps work on something other than a windows phone..
my web site isn't working why? can you fix it please?
Hi Nick, There seems to be an issue when opening a document from SkyDrive when using Chrome, Open in Office. It throws a 'browser not supported' error.
Is there any reason that the web apps wouldn't work on an iPad. I go to the same url as my PC do not see the icons to create any apps
We here in the Philippines have high hopes that Office Web will also be made available to us.
Thanks for your devotion, but I have trouble using Office Web Apps.
In my opinion, Office Web Apps are too slow compared with Google Docs.
Do you agree with my point?
I was wondering if there is a plan for any updates such as performance, adding a save button, etc.
Thanks for the great news.
I am wondering when we will get access to the Web Apps? I have been visiting skydrive.com, hotmail.com, office live workspace as - no place I can see it?
I am from Denmark. Does this require Office 2010 installed locally?
I can't see web apps in my hotmail account. I've been since yesterday try to figure out how to make it work. I'm using IE8, W7 and Windows Live.
