Google Acquired QuickOffice App Soon to Go Off from Google Play Store and Apple App Store

It has been officially announced by Google will be axing off QuickOffice app from iOS and Android. QuickOffice was once a competitor for Microsoft Office and then it was acquired by Google two years ago.   Google announced through a blog post that since QuickOffice has been integrated with Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, the QuickOffice app will no longer be available for download from Google Play Store and Apple App Store from the coming weeks.   The users are currently will be able to use the app. However, no new features will be added to it. And new users will not be able to download and install the app. The functionality of QuickOffice has been completely integrated with Google Drive.   QuickOffice was the app Android users used to create and edit MS Office files. However, now the same thing can done using Google Drive apps. After the announcement at the Google I/O event, it was quite expected that the demise of QuickOffice is drawing near.   During the Google I/O event, it was officially revealed that Google is planning to upgrade the Google Drive and its apps to seamlessly create and edit MS Office files. With the new upgrade, in order to view documents and spreadsheets created with MS Office, users will not have to convert them to suit Google formatting. From now on, users will have to separately download and install apps for Docs, Sheets and Slides. The new upgraded version of the apps will bring better collaboration.   When users sign up for Google Drive, they are provided with 15GB of free cloud storage space. It brings various kinds of features like accessing files offline, file sharing, printing the files stored in cloud and so on.   Google Docs is available mainly for Android mobile devices. It allows users to create and edit documents. Since the docs created are stored on the cloud, multiple users with permission can access it at the same time. When you create or edit documents, they are automatically saved on the cloud.   Google Sheets also function in the same manner as Google Docs. However, it is mainly used to create and spreadsheets. Google Slides is the new feature. It is completely compatible with presentation files created with MS PowerPoint. Collaborative working and automatic saving are also available with the new Google Slides.   Since Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides are now available with full compatibility with MS Office files, there is no significant reason to continue using QuickOffice. Hence, we bid goodbye to the app forever.
