In November 2016, we announced availability of Visio Online Preview, a new way to view and share your Visio diagrams on the web. Today, we’re making it even easier for our customers to use Visio Online Preview, by adding support for VSD file format and new cloud storage options for storing and viewing Visio diagrams on the web.
VSD file format support
When Visio Online Preview was launched, users were able to view their .vsdx files on the web, which is the latest and default file format for Visio 2013 and onwards. Now, you will also be able to view .vsd files right in your browser. VSD file format is the default file open and save format for Visio 2003, 2007 and 2010.
This update is applicable to all Office 365 customers.
New cloud storage options
Earlier, Visio Online Preview was available for users whose diagrams are stored in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
We are extending this capability to users who are using Exchange Online, Outlook.com or Hotmail for their email. With Visio Online Preview, you can now view attached Visio files directly in the browser. Also, from now on, any partner in the Cloud Storage Partner Program (CSPP) can enable viewing of Visio files for their application.
We’ll continue to add more capabilities to Visio Online over time. Do share your feedback and requests at UserVoice.
