Office Online adds an extension for Chrome
Microsoft also wants to introduce its software in competing browsers. Office Online existed, from which you could work from virtually any browser. But now it will more, launching an extension own Office in Chrome, the Google browser. It seems that in the absence of extensions in Edge, the Redmond put them in direct competition.
Extending Office Online is now available in Chrome. So with two touches we can open any document we have saved onedrive or Dropbox and also, of course, start a new document.
This extension allows you to view, just click on it, recent documents we have stored in the cloud, either from Microsoft or own Dropbox. Once this extension presents these documents it allows us to access them, opening another browser tab or create a new one. If we choose the latter option we’ll end at Office Online, the website of the office suite of Redmond. From there, obviously, we will have the same options we have always had since I opened this website.
Skype Office 2016
Another new feature of Office Online, in addition to its new extension in Chrome, is that anyone with Office 2016 Skype can be integrated into any document. That is, when we believe a new one, you can open a sidebar that will allow us to communicate with whoever we want. This new functionality will allow creating documents online with others in a much easier way. Skype is being integrated into the entire ecosystem of Windows and Office Online will not be an exception.
Anyway, it is a big step extension that Microsoft has launched Office Online for Chrome. In Redmond want users to use their software wherever they are from the browser or operating system being connected. For now, not having the possibility of extensions for Edge, which we are still waiting, they have included one in Chrome.
As you see, it is not the best extension of the world, since it is only access to Office Online website, but better than nothing. Now press two buttons we will be able to create a new Office document or access to all we have stored in the cloud. And that’s also good that Dropbox is with onedrive.https://www.thetechnologylounge.com/office-online-extension-for-chrome/MS Office
