Office 365 Gets a Facelift

Less than six months after shipping, Office 365 got its third update. The first two were modest; this one has some real meat.

Like the on-premise version of the Office productivity suite, Office 365 has tight links to SharePoint. The update gives it closer ties to the document repository and collaboration platform. These ties revolve essentially around the Web version of SharePoint, which makes sense for the Web-based Office 365.

Office 365 also now supports Lync for Mac, a unified communication tool, and Windows Phone 7.5.

Meanwhile, Microsoft's Internet storage service SkyDrive has been enhanced to be more app-specific, making it more logical to peruse and work with your files.
