Google Drive comment functionality now includes Microsoft files

Microsoft

Microsoft

To start with, users can now comment on a given Microsoft Office document or spreadsheet directly in the Google Drive file preview, so long as it's been uploaded to the platform. You can highlight lines in a file and make comments like you would on a Google Doc, and those comments will follow through in individual apps, too, like Microsoft Office applications.

With commenting in Drive preview, you won't need to open up other tools to complete tasks. Microsoft Office 365 and Google's G Suite both offer a variety of tools, many of which overlap.

"We frequently use the comments feature in Google Docs and Slides when preparing specification documents, reviewing project proposals and creating marketing materials", Stéphane Donzé, CEO and founder of AODocs, said in the post.

John Mahoney: British-born Frasier actor dies aged 77
Mahoney's role in Fraiser got him a lot of recognition, but he eventually got exhausted of travelling from Chicago to Los Angeles. After Frasier he continued to appear in American TV shows and films including In Treatment, Burn Notice , and Hot in Cleveland .

The update, announced this morning, relates to G Suite's commenting feature.

"When you're collaborating with an external agency, negotiating a contract with a client or coordinating a sales agreement with a supplier, chances are you're dealing with multiple file formats", Google wrote in a blog post. Let's say your coworker opens a file on her Windows laptop using MS Word, she will see your comment in the file and can reply right from there.

The new features from Google allow users to interact with Microsoft files by opening them in a preview mode in Google Drive.

LeBron James hits buzzer-beater to lift Cavs in OT
The Cavs are now 6 1/2 games back of the No. 2 Toronto Raptors and 7 1/2 back of the conference's top team, the Boston Celtics. Thomas has not made ardent strides since coming back from a torn labrum in his right hip that sidelined him for 7½ months.

The update allows Drive users to comment on files the same way they would in Google Docs, the post noted, without any additional programs needed.

This takes away the tedious step of converting a third-party document into a Google Drive file.

What's more, comments made in Drive Preview can now be exported to the underlying file so that they remain visible when the file is opened using the local client application.
