For years, people have thought that Google Docs and Dropbox are two good services that will work great together. Dropbox is a popular cloud service that enables you to store, sync, and share files over the Internet.

Microsoft Office is still the best bet for writing documents, creating presentations and editing spreadsheets. Today, the Office surprises users by collaborating with Google Docs. Syncing never been this good.

Google transforms one of its acquisitions into Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office. What does this feature do?

This newest tool simultaneously edits an Office doc via the same cloud. This one’s launching in beta today. It will be an add on for Office that syncs docs, spreadsheets and presentations for Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 with the “Google cloud.”

This newest technology was derived from DocVerse, a productivity tool that Google has acquired early 2010. It lets multiple users to collaborate and edit Office documents.

Cloud Connect isn’t taking away any of that collaboration instead it just adds up a few bits of functionality to the tool. A team can edit a document from either Microsoft Office or Google Docs simultaneously. Google Docs also saves all of the revisions, so if there’s someone who messed up the work, it’s easy to revert them.

Google Introduces Apps Search

Written on August 19, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Ever wanted to search not only your e-mail, but your presentations, spreadsheets and documents? Not to worry, because Google is working on a project that will do just that.

Google is working on an experimental project to help users search not just their e-mail, but also their presentations, spreadsheets and documents. Google Apps Search is the newest feature from Google Labs, allowing users to extend their search to Google Docs and site results. The “Search Mail” button will turn to a “Search Mail and Docs” when you activate it. So whenever you perform a search through Gmail, it will display the 20 most recent e-mails with that query plus 20 related Google Docs or Sites. In addition to the universal search functionality, the feature also includes a “Did You Mean?” search suggestions. It functions the same way the Google Search does. Gmail is quickly becoming a destination for performing all of your searches, now that “Search the Web” is located directly to the right of “Search Mail and Docs.” If you already activated the new feature on your account, tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
