Google has today launched a new Google Drive plugin for Microsoft Office, enabling users to link their Office software to the Drive cloud storage service offered by Google.
The Microsoft Office Google Drive plugin is currently only available for Windows but provides an easy way for users to edit Office files stored in Google Drive.
With Google Drive, you can keep all your important files in one place, then open them with your choice of apps and devices. Building on this open approach, we recently made it possible to launch your favorite desktop applications directly from Google Drive.
And today we’re taking it a step further by bringing Google Drive to Microsoft Office. Using the new Google Drive plug-in, people using Office for Windows can now open their Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents stored in Drive, then save any changes back to Drive once they’re done.
If you’re working on a document, spreadsheet or presentation that’s on your computer, you can also save that file to Google Drive, directly from the Office apps. This is especially useful for sharing files with teams, or for accessing your files across devices.
