It’s official, Office Web Apps are Live!

We just told you about the Wave 4 web services going live, and now sure enough Jason Moore has posted on Inside Windows Live “officially” announcing the availability of Office Web Apps on SkyDrive in the US, UK, Canada, and Ireland.  But no need to worry if you’re not in one of those locales, according to Moore:

If you don’t live in one of those regions, you can still get access – just click here. You might not get the Web Apps in your favorite language yet, as we are still rolling out updates to different regions. Note that people you share documents with may also need to visit the link above before they can access the documents you share with them.

It’s all here, from drag and drop files from your desktop into Office Web Apps (as long as you have Silverlight installed), creating and editing Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote documents online, real time online collaboration, view documents on (most) smartphones, and lots more.


The best part is you can check out all this for yourself at, so get going!
