Microsoft today announced the preview of simpler sign-on feature that will allow education customers to sign in to Office 365 using their Google credentials.

Several school districts in the US have selected Google as their classroom solution. Microsoft received feedback from them that they would like to use some Office 365 apps alongside Google apps, but their students have trouble remembering two sets of passwords. Microsoft’s new solution solves this problem. During the preview period, Microsoft’s simpler sign-on will allow education customers use OneNote and Immersive Reader using their Google account and password.
