Quickoffice is Now Free for Everyone!
Google’s Quickoffice apps for iOS and Android, that let users view and edit Microsoft Office files, are now free to anyone with a Google account. Google is trying to make it easier for everyone to work together, even those who “haven’t gone Google yet.”
The company on Thursday announced that its Quickoffice mobile app, for viewing and editingMicrosoft Office files, is now free to anyone with a Google account. Previously, the app was only free to Google Apps for Business subscribers — everyone else had to shell out $14.99 for the pro version or $19.99 for the pro HD version.
As a bonus, Google is offering an extra 10GB of Google Drive storage for the next two years to anyone who signs up their Google account for the new Quickoffice app by September 26.
Quickoffice for iOS and Android lets users create, view, and edit Microsoft Office Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files on their mobile devices. The app is also integrated with Google Drive so files can be stored and accessed across devices. Google added a few new features to the app as well, including the ability to create ZIP folders and view charts in PowerPoint and Excel. Google said people already using Quickoffice for Google Apps for Business can update to the new app.
