Google Docs Now Supporting Excel, Powerpoint And More
Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "Windows Phone News" @ 09:00 PM
"The Google Docs Viewer is used by millions of people every day to quickly view PDFs, Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations online. Not only is viewing files in your browser far more secure than downloading and opening them locally, but it also saves time and doesn't clutter up your hard-drive with unwanted files...Today we're excited to launch support for 12 new file types."
I've never had occasion to use Google Docs - now I'm curious enough to try it out, especially with the new support for PSD and AI files. Including in today's update to Docs is compatibility with:
- Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
- Apple Pages (.PAGES)
- Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
- Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
- Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
- PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
- TrueType (.TTF)
- XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
That's a pretty strong line-up to add to the file formats already supported.
