Microsoft unveils even more cloud storage integration options for Office for iOS and Web

Today Microsoft has revealed some more cloud storage integration features for both its Office apps for iOS as well as Office Online. This follows the Dropbox integration that debuted last year.

As it turns out, though, Microsoft doesn’t want to force you to use Dropbox in order to get neat Office integration. So starting today, other cloud storage providers can be natively integrated into the Locations picker in the Office apps for iOS (as seen in the example screenshot above).

This means you’ll be able to open and edit files stored on other cloud platforms, then save them there once again when you’re done. For now, this integration is only available on iOS, but Microsoft promises to add it to Office for Android as well as the Office universal apps for Windows 10.

At the same time, the software giant is allowing third party cloud storage services to integrate Office Online into their applications. This allows their users to open, view, and edit documents in any Web browser. Box, Citrix, and Salesforce are already working with Microsoft on this feature.
