You can now edit Microsoft Office files straight from Gmail

Gmail is building up its integration with Microsoft Office files, allowing users to directly edit Office documents that they receive in attachments.

Users are able to edit documents out of Google’s own Workspace suite directly within Gmail for a while, however the Office integration is fresh. Previously, users have to open these records in the Google Workspace suite until they can make any modifications.

You can now edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents without leaving Gmail, and while keeping the record’s original file format. This also means that you may send an edited Office document in an answer without needing to download and reinstall the brand new edition.

Modifying an Office document is as straightforward as pressing a brand new ‘edit’ button which will appear alongside the email attachment.

And in another piece of Office compatibility, Google announced a new Macro Conversion add-on to make it much easier to move macros from Excel into Sheets.

The upgrade is rolling out to customers today, though Google says it might take up to 2 weeks until it shows up for everybody. For much more on the new attribute, you are able to check out Google’s service page here.
