Gmail Update: Now you can edit office documents attachments right from your email

Google is making it considerably simpler to work with Microsoft Office documents, with the organization presently permitting clients to straightforwardly alter joined Office records in Gmail, much like it as of now permits with Google Docs or Sheets documents.

Google Workspace (the as of late rebranded G Suite, which incorporates Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and Calendar) has offered similarity with Office documents from Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for quite a while. Yet, already, reports must be brought into Google Drive to alter or adjust them — while messaged connections were simply ready to be seen.

The new work process, nonetheless, smoothes out that cycle impressively. Presently, you can straightforwardly open and alter an Office record utilizing the Google Docs proofreader just by tapping on it — much the same as you would a local Google Doc. However, the new altering capacity doesn’t change over Office records into Google Docs, rather safeguarding the first document design.

Gmail will permit clients to react to the first email and incorporate the now-refreshed document (still in an Office record design) without first necessitating that they download and afterward re-join the refreshed document.

Google is likewise attempting to help guarantee that Office documents work all the more easily in Google Docs, with the organization dispatching another Macro Converter add-on for Google Workspace that is intended to help clients and associations import their macros from Excel to Sheets all the more without any problem.

Likewise, Google is chipping away at adding better archive direction and picture backing to Google Docs, considering reports with both evenly and vertically situated pages, alongside pictures put behind content and watermarks (in spite of the fact that the new picture highlights won’t be accessible until one year from now.)
