Google today improved Google Drive's compatibility with Microsoft Office documents. Drive users can now comment directly on more file types, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDFs, and images without first converting them to Docs, Sheets, or Slides. The commenting system for Office documents functions much the same as it already does for Google Docs. Google explained that the Drive preview pane lets people "comment, assign tasks, or mention coworkers and the people you work can reply back, even if they’re not using G Suite." Google continues to offer its Drive plug-in for Outlook to make it easier to insert files stored in Drive to an Outlook email or vice versa. As always, Drive users can fully convert Office documents to Docs, Sheets, or Slides if they wish. Google said the new Office integration is coming to all users over the next few weeks.
