Google Docs is one of my favorite service from Google. I used to save my important documents in it. The most important disadvantage of docs was its lack of support for the popular document formats. Now Google Docs supports 12 new file formats.
New File Formats Supported By Google Docs:
- Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
- Apple Pages (.PAGES)
- Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
- Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
- Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
- PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
- TrueType (.TTF)
- XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
Google Docs team:
Not only does this round out support for the major Microsoft Office file types (we now support DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, XLS and XLSX), but it also adds quick viewing capabilities for many of the most popular and highly-requested document and image types.
If anyone sends you an email with any of the Google Docs supported format, You can view it directly from the browser itself.
