Microsoft today added a new feature to Office Online. The latest featured, dubbed as “Insights” will let users search the web right from Office Online. The feature is pretty simple but it is indeed very useful. It’s worth mentioning that the search feature is powered by Bing. The Insights feature will search Bing for the relevant information. It’ll also search Wikipedia and Oxford English Dictionary (to define words) The company stated:

When you right-click on a word and select Insights, Office Online understands what you are looking for and then uses the power of Bing to bring in relevant information from a variety of sources like Bing Snapshot, Wikipedia, Bing Image Search, Oxford English Dictionary and the web—all neatly presented alongside your content. You can spend as much time as you want in the Insights experience—take a quick glance or explore details and interesting articles related to your selection, and do all this while you are working in Word Online.
