Google is making Office editing available on Android. This feature brings the collaborative and assistive features of Google Workspace to your Microsoft Office files when you’re using your Android device. Already available on the web, it:
- Allows you to edit, comment, and collaborate on Microsoft Office files using Google Docs’, Sheets’, and Slides’ powerful real-time collaboration tools.
- Improves sharing options, improves sharing controls, and reduces the need to download and email file attachments.
- Streamlines workflows by reducing the need to convert file types.
Office editing will replace QuickOffice (sometimes known as Office Compatibility Mode), which has more limited functionality and collaboration capabilities. See more about Office editing in Google’s announcement for the feature on the web.
- Rapid and Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on September 8, 2020
- Available to all Google Workspace customers and users with personal Google Accounts
Thanks for sharing and spreading the word!
