Google Pulls The Plug On Quickoffice For Android And iOS
It's a best-of-both-worlds scenario, but it doesn't happen often. And, these things don't last forever. Following Google I/O, the company has quietly announced that Quickoffice will be yanked from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Why? Quickoffice will be fully and completely integrated into Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. In those apps, the Quickoffice code will allow users to actually open and edit full-on Microsoft Office documents within a Google environment, so overall it feels like a win.
At least we aren't losing the Quickoffice functionality, but you will have to dive even deeper into Google's lair if you want to continue taking advantage.
