File sync and share business Box releases new integrations into Microsoft Office Online with real time co-authoring, Office for iOS, and Outlook

The latest fruits of the Box and Microsoft alliance are live and include three new Box integrations with Microsoft including Microsoft Office Online with real time co-authoring, Office for iOS and Outlook.

With Box for Office Online with real time co-authoring users can make concurrent, real time edits to Word, Excel and PowerPoint files stored in Box with all changes from all parties automatically saved back to Box.

Box integration with Office for iOS adds the ability to preview content in Box from Office for iOS applications, allowing users to create and edit Office files saved in Box directly from Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for iOS.

Lastly users can now attach content in Box to emails in the new Outlook.com, replacing the need to save items to a desktop before attaching to an email with Box integration with Outlook.

Box for Office Online with real-time co-authoring and the Box integration with Office for iOS are available now to Box business customers with an Office 365 license and to all Box personal users. The Box integration with Outlook.com is expected to be available to Box personal users in the coming weeks.

Commenting on the new products Kirk Koenigsbauer, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Office described the new integrations as "major enhancements" to allow users "to work and collaborate fully in the cloud from any device."
