Cloud Connect syncs your Office documents with Google Docs

Google Docs is great for creating and editing a variety of documents. However, the software isn’t as robust as Microsoft’s Office suite. So why not have the best of both worlds? The easy storage and sharing abilities of Google’s cloud service, with the power behind Microsoft’s programs. That’s what Google wants to do with their new Cloud Connect plug-in for Microsoft Office.

The plug-in installs a toolbar in your Office suite and allows you to save your current document in Google Docs. You can then select users that will have the ability to view and/or edit said document. Documents can be modified by either Office or the appropriate Google Docs app. As for which versions of Office are supported, you’ll be able to use the 2003, 2007, and 2010 flavors on the PC.


  • Know what would be great? An OpenOffice plugin that does the same thing.

    • Oh yes, definitely! Matter of time? :)
