Google Docs allows you to edit MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files

"VAN" (Sergey Topychkanov - Moscow, Russia) :: Editing Microsoft Office files in Google Documents is a pain, writes the Verge. You can open and view them using Google software, but you still need to convert the document format to make changes, comment, and collaborate.

As The Verge informs, it will finally change as per your need basically. Google announced the appearance of built-in support for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint formats. It means that you can work on them together through Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Yesterday, Google also announced that you can now create Google docs, spreadsheets, and slides directly inside your Dropbox folders. You can edit all of these files using the familiar Google interface, manage them, and share them. When you finish editing a file, you can save it without losing the format.

We also took into account small details, such as linking the Google Docs commenting system to the comments of Dropbox files and ensuring full search of documents, tables and slides in the service. For this integration, you must have a G Suite account. However, this will become available after users connect both accounts.
