Google allows users to edit Microsoft Office files without converting them

On the other hand, G Suite team announced that moving forward users can "edit, comment, and collaborate on Microsoft Office files using Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides". That means a Word document can be opened in Google Docs without concern for formatting problems and other issues while giving users G Suite specific features.

While opening and viewing Office files has always been easy in Docs, editing them has been a frustrating experience.

In Google Docs, the company expects to release a feature that allows two documents to be compared directly, with differences and suggested edits appearing in a separate Google Docs file. For me this has led to many, many duplicate files across my Google and G Suite accounts and those duplicate files get a bit confusing to navigate after a bit of time.

Google has added support for editing Microsoft Office files directly within its suite of cloud-based apps, TheNextWeb reports.

Dropbox is deepening its integration with Google launching a new feature enabling business customers to work with Google docs, Sheets, and Slides all without ever leaving Dropbox.

Google has just announced that it's adding Microsoft Office document support to its very own G Suite productivity suite in an attempt to provide customers with a more straightforward way to work with documents.

Hangouts also saw a few changes, with Hangouts Chat now available in Gmail while Hangouts Meet now has automatic live captions and has made live streaming available to the public.
