Recently, Microsoft Office has brought about a new G Suite collaboration for enabling editing on Android. With this feature, one will be able to edit, comment, and collaborate on Microsoft Office files using Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. This will further render help to both G Suite and Office users to cooperate for streamlining workflows without undergoing the trouble of converting file type.
The office will be assisted by the real-time collaboration tools that will help in adding comments, editing on Word, PowerPoint presentations, or Excel sheets. This rapid development’s motto was to substitute the earlier existing Quick Office system, which had minimal options for collaborative capabilities and introduce a plethora of G Suite features.
“It improves sharing options, sharing controls, and reduces the need to download and email file attachments,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.”
Microsoft has announced that this feature will be present by default for all G Suite customers and users with a personal Google account, and there might as well be no need to add up or install any additional software. However, the user must keep track of the latest updated version of Google Drive.
The official roll-out of this new update for Android began yesterday onwards and is about to reach the users with personal Google accounts soon.
