Google has released a new update to expand the offline editing capabilities of Google Suite, which is also known as Google Workspace. Google Suite consists of various productive tools such as Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The newest update to Google Suite will allow users to edit and comment on Office files within Docs, Sheets, and Slides when offline. Notably, the offline editing feature had been missing for documents in Office editing mode for a long time.
Google Suite Finally Get Offline Editing Support For Office Files
Google Workspace gives you access to files on the go, and provides powerful collaborative editing options if you’re working on something with multiple people. Many use it as a Microsoft Office replacement. While Google Suite allowed you to edit both Office documents and Workspace files offline with a toggle, the feature had been missing for documents that were opened in Office editing mode. Users had no other way but to edit the offline documents in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint to insert any changes.
