Microsoft improves collaboration in Office Web Apps with real-time joint editing

Office Web Apps, the browser-based, pared-down version of the Microsoft suite, now lets people co-edit documents in real time, matching a feature rival Google Docs has had for over two years.

Until now, you could jointly edit Office Web Apps documents but changes had to be saved for other collaborators to see them. With the new live co-authoring feature, colleagues can see each other's modifications as they're made.

Microsoft also announced auto-save has been added to the suite's Word application, a feature already available in the other three applications -- Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
