Microsoft Office Web Apps have been updated on SkyDrive

With Windows 8 launching later this week, Microsoft has now rolled out the latest version of Office Web Apps on their SkyDrive platform.

Microsoft Office Web Apps is similar to Google Docs where users can access, create and edit files stored on the SkyDrive platform.

The company said:

Thanks to all 750,000 of you who have helped put the Office Web Apps Preview through its paces since it went live in July. This scale of use and thousands of pieces of feedback prior to general availability has helped us tweak and improve the quality of the latest Office Web Apps update. In addition to addressing the top customer requests and issues, we’ve also fine-tuned Office Web Apps to work with the final version of IE10, Windows 8, and iOS 6.

Microsoft Office Web Apps contain four core applications:

Microsoft Word Web App
Microsoft Excel Web App
Microsoft PowerPoint Web App
Microsoft OneNote Web App
