One of the more notable changes that's been announced is the way that Google Docs will move forward handling Microsoft Office docs. This is a great update for people who want to collaborate on documents and don't all have a copy of Microsoft Office. If you exchange data with partners, vendors or team colleagues, and you use Microsoft Office, and others use G Suite, the program will make it possible to open them and edit them without conversion. "Office editing brings everyone the benefits of G Suite's real time collaboration tools and intelligence features to Office files".More news: Masters 2019: Zach Johnson hilariously hits ball on a warmup swing
In terms of supported file types, Google Docs will support.doc, .docx, and.dot files in Word, .xls, .xlsx, .xlsm and.xlt files in Excel and.ppt, .pptx, .pps and.pot files in PowerPoint. First, Slack announced that it'll let you view documents without leaving the app, and then Dropbox enabled editing Google Docs within its own cloud storage app. However, the company later confirmed this will work for all users.
This morning, Google announced support would be coming to the commercial versions of those apps right now, namely G Suite, but the company now tells The Verge they're coming to regular users too, as soon as this month.More news: Delta to restrict seat recline, making flying even worse
