Microsoft Office users can now sync to Google Docs directly from application
Google is introducing Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office, a software that allows Microsoft Office applications to save and read directly from the cloud.

The company said tens of millions of people have moved to Google Docs because itís 100% web: it provides real-time collaboration in the browser, with no software to install, manage or upgrade.

The new Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office is based on software developed by recently acquired DocVerse.

With Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office, people can continue to use the familiar Office interface, while reaping many of the benefits of web-based collaboration offered by cloud-based document storage.

Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud, without ever leaving the Microsoft Office software. Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs. Because the files are stored in the cloud, people always have access to the current version.

Once in the Google cloud, documents can be easily shared and even simultaneously edited by multiple people, from right within Microsoft Office. A full revision history is kept as the files are edited, and users can revert to earlier versions in one click.
