M365 Changelog: Visio Services discontinuation starting 10th Feb 2023

Rabia Noureen


MC476026 – Beginning 10th Feb 2023, Visio Web Access (Visio Service) and its Web Part for SharePoint Online will no longer be available. Instead of Visio Web Access you will be able to use Visio Web to migrate your organization’s web parts to a newer experience with the new Javascript (JS) APIs for Visio Web. Visio Web enables high fidelity viewing, sharing, and collaboration in your favorite browser, without installing the client for all Office 365 licenses. It also supports embedding Visio diagrams in SharePoint Online using a modern file viewer part and with IFrame along with JS API programmability.

How does this affect me?

Beginning February 10th, users in your organization will not be able to switch to Visio services and will not be able to use their Visio Services embedded web parts. As an alternative, Visio Web viewing is available to most Office 365 subscriptions.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

Instead of using Visio Web Access (Visio Service) and its Web Part for SharePoint Online, Microsoft recommends using either:

  • Visio Web and the File viewer Web part (link: Use the File viewer web part)
  • iFrame in SharePoint Online for Visio Web Part (iFrame with new Visio Web APIs instead of Visio Web Part with Visio Services JS APIs). (link: Visio package)
