Preview Word document

Does anybody know of a way to preview a Word document?
When I have a .pdf document for example, I use a Webarea and PDF viewer to show the document
I am looking for something similar for Word documents
Is there a way to view a Word document in a webarea for example?

Thanks in advance,

In the past (meaning MS Office versions without .docx format) there was a software called Wordviewer (or so), officially from Microsoft. It did exactly what you want.
But unfortunately I’m not aware of such a software for more recent Office versions.

Doers office 365 let you view without being able to change? But that would seem to be an external app rather than web area
