Microsoft Office Word Web version adds support for comments and likes

According to the latest report, if you’ve ever wanted to express a “like” to a comment left in a document you work on in Word for the web, now you can. That’s exactly what Microsoft announced.

This feature means you will no longer have to press “+1” to agree to comments in Word for the web. This has been replaced by a like button, basically similar to the “like” feature in Teams.


To use it, open a document that already contains comments. You can then react to existing comments or add new ones using the “Like” button in the top right corner of the comment box.

It’s even possible to dismiss the “Like” by clicking the “Like” button again. As you might expect, hovering over the “Like” button also shows who else “liked” the comment, with real-time updates.

For now, though, those using Word on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android won’t be able to see comment responses. Microsoft says the product team is working to bring this feature to other platforms as soon as possible. The feature is rolling out to Word for Web, and you should see it soon.
