When we shipped Office Web Apps in June, we set out to make the Office experience more accessible so you could work from anywhere and share with anyone. We love to get input from the people who use Office Web Apps. That feedback helps us decide what features we offer next and when we make those features available. The latest updates to Office Web Apps add some much requested functionality to Word Web App, Excel Web App and PowerPoint Web App.
Here's what we added...
One of the top requests from customers we saw once Word Web App went live was the ability to print Word documents. Word Web App's viewer includes the ability to print but what we realized as we looked through all the customer feedback is that you wanted the print command in the Word Web App editor as well. Now, if you drop the File menu when you are editing a Word document you'll see this:
Not only will this make the print command easier to find but it will also reduce the number of steps required to print a document you are editing.
In Excel Web App there are two updates I want to highlight: inserting charts and the auto fill handle. Now in Excel Web App you can go to the Insert tab and insert charts. You will then be able to manipulate the data and elements of the chart in much the same way you can in Excel 2010. Here is a taste of the new UI for inserting charts:
You can also modify existing charts (or ones you just created!) just by clicking on them:
Here is a chart made in Excel Web App:
Also, you can now use the auto fill handle in Excel Web App. The auto fill handle is a time-saving feature in the Excel desktop client that allows you to use the contents of one cell to fill in adjacent cells. For example, In this worksheet there are two columns of numbers. I am summing the first row of numbers. If I want to sum the remaining numbers in the two columns, I can grab the small black square (the auto fill handle) and drag it down:
Here is the result when I drag the auto fill handle down the column:
With the addition of clip art to PowerPoint Web App you can now add high quality photos and illustrations to your presentation from Office.com’s image library. Choose from over 200,000 high-quality, royalty-free images, including selections from partners like iStockPhoto and Fotolia. Use the Insert tab to add clipart to slides with image placeholders:
You can use the Insert Clip Art dialog to search through thousands of images:
We are also happy to report that you can now select more themes when you create a new presentation in PowerPoint Web App. Once you name your presentation this dialog box comes up when the presentation opens:
We really appreciate all your feedback. Keep it coming! You can give us feedback directly from each of the web apps. There is a Give Feedback link in the File menu.
Stay tuned as we have even more to share in a few weeks.

WOW!!I had to place the information in the favorites so I could never lose it. Thank you much. Gratefully, Shalom.
I have been using it for past 2 weeks for my college projects and all...even though it is not as good as the real thing it works quiet satisfyingly....
I would be very grateful if you could let us change the size of pictures we use or the box in which we type the info. as we need in ppt.....
And also if we could copy and paste pictures, sentences normally as we do with mouse as sometimes i am not able to copy things which i really need..
Not sure I like it that you have to have had Word to use this. I have Microsoft Works..
AUTOSAVE! Becauses of differences in the way in which I work in desktop applications and browsers, I tend to use "browser habits" when working in them. I never leave Word without saving, and if I do, I know it has autosaved for me. I would like to see an autosave feature in the browser version as well. Even a script based macro to "crtl-s" is better than nothing.
this is just great!
I'm so pleased. i love it.
In OneNote when I try to open a section that is password protected nothing happens. How can I access my information from that section on the web?
I hate this Power Point Web App. Before my old Power Point program would open up ALL the slides and I could view everything. Now this stupid program takes over and will open up only a few slides and then just sits there. If I could disable this and go back to the old way, I would...If I knew how..
The Word Web App definitely needs to add footnote/endnote capability, otherwise it is no use to me or my students.
@Jeri - You do not need Microsoft Word to use the Word Web App. Off hand, the only feature that I can think of which will not work is (obviously) "Open in Word." Nevertheless even without Microsoft Word on your machine you can still create, edit, save, and view Microsoft Word documents online through the Word Web App.
@Ron - Are you receiving your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations through e-mail? If so, you can still download them by clicking on the word "Download" below the file's name. That said, What browser are you using? Does the issue you describe happen with all PowerPoint presentations or just a specific one? If it is a specific one, is it possible to share it in a public place so that the PowerPoint Web App team can investigate the problem?
It sucks and I'd like to know how to stop these web apps
AUTOSAVE in the Word??? My son just lost hours of work on a paper for class tomorrow because his browser refreshed. I can't believe, after Googling for 30 minutes, that there is seriously no autosave. That is pathetic!!
Web apps have been a great addition to Hotmail.
However, I haven't worked out how view documents in a new window/tab. Opening them in the current window/tab really breaks up the browsing experience.
