Google Now Automatically Converts Tracked Changes In Office Documents To Suggest Edits

Recently Google announced that Google Docs users can now edit Office documents in the native format as opposed to converting them to Google format. With that ability, Google has solved the major problem in getting users from Office suite. Today, they announced that any tracked changes in a .docx file will be automatically carried over to Docs as Suggested Edits. Once done, users can collaborate with others.

Docs makes working together easy by letting people edit files in real-time, rather than emailing multiple versions of the same document back and forth. But sometimes you want to control specific changes someone else makes in a document. Suggest Edits in Docs lets you do just that: your team can make suggestions that you can accept or reject with a single click. This feature is available for anyone with commenting access in Google Docs on the web, and is coming soon to our mobile apps.

    Proof that even the Office citadel isn’t safe from the Google onslaught. Microsoft needs to seriously work on Office Online and push a free offline version of it.
