Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is now pulling the curtain back on the Quickoffice, which it brought in the daylight a few years ago. The Quickoffice was yet another alternative to the Microsoft Office, and was compatible with company’s Android operating system and Apple iOS.
Google has successfully ported the features to the Google Drive, and now is no longer need of this one separate Quick Office suite. The Mountain View giant has removed it from both the Android and App store, and no longer will provide any updates for it. All the services from the Quickoffice suite can now be found in the Google Drive. Google Drive, just like the terminated suite, offers features to read, write or even create a new office file, including documents and presentations.
Quickoffice was freely available, for both the Android and iOS users, and hence the Google Drive. Google Drive does not charge even a single penny for the “on-the-go” service it provides. The user can edit or view the existing files, create a new one or upload those which were previously created using Microsoft Office or Open Office suites. It can work on almost platform, including Android, iOS and PC.
Google first acquired the Quick Office in the year 2012 and launched a free version of it for the iPad. Google then launched the same for the iPhone and Android users.
