I just received an email from the Writely team that says they are switching to Google authentication soon:
In a few days, we will update your Writely account to use your firstname.lastname@example.org Google Account registration settings.
This means you’ll need to use your Google Account password when signing in, not your Writely password (if they’re different).
If you’ve forgotten your Google Account password, just go to https://www.google.com/accounts/ForgotPasswd
Google Writely Team
Writely was acquired awhile ago by Google in order for them to offer an online Word processor to their users. One month ago Writely finally opened their doors and they were letting anyone join, but it was still known as Writely.
The email stated that Writely was switching their registration settings over to the Google Accounts, which also makes me believe that they will customize the look to more of the Google branding. I expect that it will look something like the Google Spreadsheets does but I haven’t been able to figure out what Google will name the service…maybe Google Word?
Okay, so we’re probably gonna see a facelift but I have been pondering whether they will have any new features to dazzle us with? Hopefully we find out before the weekend comes. :)
