Microsoft’s virtual fax system may need a new name: report

Microsoft is set to launch a new virtual fax service, which could offer users the ability to fax through a mobile phone or tablet, but also through an office PC, according to a report from TechRadars.

The virtual faxing system, called Office 365 VirtualFax, will initially launch with support for Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, according the report.

However, Microsoft will be launching Office 365 for Office 365 Professional subscribers in March, making it the first of the Microsoft cloud service providers to launch Office 365 virtual fax.

It’s unclear how much Office 365 will cost.

The service is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, according TechRadards report.
