You knew you could insert Web pages and media files into your SharePoint 2013 site pages, but did you also know that thanks to Microsoft Office Web Apps, you can also insert Word documents into your site page? This feature is just one of a number of updates Microsoft has made for SharePoint 2013 to optimize its compatibility with Office 2013.
