Microsoft recently updated its Office Web Apps online productivity suite to add a few useful features. The service update, which was announced by the Office Web Apps team on its official blog on Wednesday, only concerns the Excel and PowerPoint Web Apps.
The Excel Web App is the larger beneficiary of this system update. The browser-based version of Microsoft’s popular spreadsheet application now allows users to “insert, delete or rename sheets in a workbook within the Excel Web Apps, and use familiar tools like AutoSum and formula assistance to crunch data more efficiently.”
The other beneficiary of this update, the PowerPoint Web App, has only received one new feature. It is now possible to change the theme of a PowerPoint presentation at any time. There are 45 professionally designed themes to choose from.
“Back in early March, we announced Office Web Apps (on Windows Live SkyDrive and Hotmail) had become available in more than 190 countries,” wrote the Microsoft Office Web Apps team in a blog post.
“As more people are trying Web Apps and providing feedback on their experiences, we’re committed to making continuous improvements that help our customers be more productive across the PC, Mac, phone and Web browser.”
