Microsoft Could Rename Office Web Apps to Office Online


After announcing a new name OneDrive for SkyDrive, Microsoft is planning to rename another important product in its portfolio in an attempt to boost its consumer appeal. Some screenshots posted which indicate that Microsoft could soon rename Office Web Apps to Office Online, with all built-in productivity tools to get the same rebranding. Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online and OneNote Online would all be part of the suite and will boast a similar feature package available from any browser out there, just like it’s currently the case with Office Web Apps. There are no details as to when this new rebranding is supposed to take place, but if its indeed true, expect more information to be announced in time for the BUILD 2014 developer conference in April.
