Microsoft has added joint editing capabilities to Office 365 apps.

The company announced on Thursday the fact you can jointly and simultaneously with colleagues edit Word Web App, PowerPoint Web App and Excel Web App.

Microsoft promised you could see where colleagues are editing text and formatting so you can avoid changes

Joint editing and collaboration is scheduled to roll out to Office Web Apps users working in SkyDrive and Office 365 “within the next few days” the company said.

The update comes with a clutch of other changes to Office Web Apps that includes find-and-replace in Word, drag and drop of cells in Excel and picture cropping in PowerPoint.

The development gives Office 365 the same capability as Google’s Docs.

Announcing the change Microsoft re-committed to delivering editing from Android tablets “over the next several months.” ®
