Microsoft takes a play from Google’s playbook (Free Office)


So last week, Microsoft made Office Online easier to access for the public. This has long been available for a while, but Microsoft has made it easier to find and setup. You will now only require a Microsoft account to get started. (Free to signup)

This is a great move for Microsoft, but is it too late. Google has been positioning itself for years with Google Drive and Quickoffice(Android Version) to offer alternative document editing solutions. Better late then never. Even though Google has been offering these alternatives for year, they are still not as user friendly as Microsoft’s Office software. Which leaves the door open to Microsoft making a comeback, we will have to wait and see.

All this competition is great for us, give office online a try today. FREE!
