Co-author feature now available for Word Web App

Microsoft has announced that they have improved collaboration by bringing co-authoring to the Word Web App. Previously, users can co-author in Microsoft Word 2010 and Microsoft Word for Mac 2011 and also by using SkyDrive to simultaneously edit files on the web in Excel and OneNote.

Co-authoring in the Word Web App on SkyDrive helps you collaborate with others on polished content without having to leave your web browser.

According to Microsoft Office Team;

Our approach to co-authoring in the Word Web App on SkyDrive reflects our team’s deep understanding of how our customers prefer to collaborate and get things done, based on what you’ve told us and how we’ve observed the use of Office. To help us design co-authoring, we read a lot of your comments, and watched, asked, and listened to how customers said they wanted to work together when working on Office documents. We discovered that expectations change based on the type of document and style of collaboration in play.
