Technology and internet giant Google today announced a series of improvements designed for people using Google and Microsoft’s Office applications. With Google’s new feature, editing documents via Gmail will now become easier.
Editing documents via Gmail is now easier
With Office editing, users will be able to easily edit Microsoft Office files in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides without converting documents with the advanced collaboration advantage of Google Workspace.
Google recently introduced Office editing to Docs, Sheets, and Slides mobile apps. So you could easily work on Office files even outside.
As of today, you can edit Office files directly from Gmail. You can even make joint arrangements with your colleagues.
For example, when you receive a Word document as an email attachment, while preserving the Word file format, you can open the document with one click and start editing in Docs. Then you can reply to the original email thread and add the updated file directly from Docs. One more advantage of this feature is that you don’t have to download the file to edit documents.
Finally, let’s point out that an add-in called Macro Conversion is also available to make it easier for teams to transition from Excel to Sheets.
Google has also introduced the ability to invite anyone to join a Meet conversation for Google Workspace customers, including people who use Outlook and do not have a Google Account. You can join the Meet video conference by using the Google Meet add-in for Microsoft Outlook.
These innovations made by Google for Office applications are more relevant to those working on common worksheets in business areas than standard users. However, these features can of course be used by everyone. These features, which are offered gradually, will be available to all users within 1-2 weeks.
