When trying to publish to Blogger via Word 2016 or Word 2013, you receive the error "Word cannot register your account. The provider where you are trying to publish is unavailable.", or you are otherwise unable to publish.
Google updated authentication protocols, and blogging to the Blogger service via Word broke as a result. In September, we removed Blogger functionality for the time being to avoid confusion, but this broke the other blog service options. This is now fixed in build 16.0.7369.2024, released on 10/4. To get the latest updates, click File > Account > Update Options > Update Now.
