You'll soon be able to edit Microsoft documents natively on Google Docs

You'll soon be able to edit Microsoft documents natively on Google Docs”

Another new announcement revolves around bringing Connected Sheets to G Suite customers.

The new feature is rolling out to G Suite users in the next couple of weeks though the company has revealed that regular users will also be receiving the feature as well. Google warns that users relying on this app could experience issues when using this feature, so the company has created a dedicated page to assist users as they disable this app.

For those who are signed up, as many as 250 participants can now take part in Hangouts Meet sessions with the ability to turn off the video stream for data savings and usability even under sub-par network conditions.

Luck for us, things are about to change for the better. Now, if a client sends over a.docx file and you share it with the team, all the same real-time collaboration and editing goodness you get with a Google Doc will be at your fingertips without the need to convert your Microsoft Office documents.

Giving users the option of storing your files on cloud platform and edit them using the familiar Google editor.

One of the more notable changes that's been announced is the way that Google Docs will move forward handling Microsoft Office docs. The same applies to other Microsoft file types across their G Suite Slides and Sheets counterparts. Google would previously make users convert the files into its own format before editing, collaborating, and commenting.
