Look ma, no Office! That’s right… you will no longer need to convert Microsoft Office files to edit them and collaborate on Google Docs.
Want to edit and collaborate on a Microsoft Office file like a Word or Excel file, but don’t have Mircosoft’s app suite available on your machine? No problem! Google is joining Dropbox and will soon we allowing all Google Docs users to upload, edit, and collaborate on Microsoft Office files, natively, without having to convert them first.
The feature is already rolling out to G Suite customers but will be available to all at the end of the month. All you will have to do is upload your chosen file types to Docs, Sheets, or Slides – and begin editing. You can get others to join you to collaborate as well.
Supported files include Word files like .doc, .docx, and .dot, Excel files like .xls, .xlsx, .xlsm (macro enabled Excel files), and .xlt, and Powerpoint files like .ppt, .pptx, .pps, and .pot.
The same functionality is rolling out to Dropbox Business users since last week.
