Microsoft Rebrands Office Web Apps As Office Online

Previously it was rumored that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) was planning to rebrand its existing Office Web Apps, and now the company has officially announced that Office Web Apps will indeed become Office Online from today.

Why did the rebranding happen?

One reason that Microsoft states behind this rebranding is because of the confusion of having “apps” in the branding. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) in a blog post says: “We heard from customers that the inclusion of Apps in our name was confusing. Are they something I install? Do I go to an app store to get them? No, to use them all you need is a web browser. Ah! You say. So it’s like Office, online. Yes, exactly. Office Online.”

This is the primary reason behind the rebranding. The company wanted to prevent confusion and that’s why they changed Office Web Apps to Office Online.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) also states that “a lot of you don’t know that we have an online version of Office because you just couldn’t find it.” Office Web Apps were accessible through OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive), or on Sharepoint at work. But for those who want an easier way, you can access it from Office.com, which is a more “discoverable and shareable web page” as per Microsoft. You can access Office Online from OneDrive too, though.
