Google Releases Quickoffice Update To Finally Push Users To Install Docs, Sheets, And Slides [APK Download]

Google has a well-earned reputation for funding multiple redundant and competing products, then unceremoniously eviscerating the ones that don't quite fit the company's vision. <cough>messaging clients, Currents, and that other one</cough>. Now, it looks like the selection of document editors is also about to undergo such a diet. Google is finally getting ready to pull the plug on Quickoffice.

Google Drive 2.2 Introduces Drag And Drop File Management And An Updated Navigation Menu [APK Download]

This Update Wednesday brings about a change to the Google Drive Android app that's all about moving files around. Let's get to it.

To be honest, I never really expected to have anything to say about a teardown of the Drive companion apps, but here we are. Google uses Docs, Sheets, and Slides to give Android a mostly seamless editing experience for each of Drive's primary document types. They've gone through a steady set of improvements since launching in April and June of last year, either keeping pace or progressively catching up with the features offered by their web counterparts.

Update Wednesday went by with merely a whisper this week, barely registering more than a handful of fresh versions.

Gmail Now Allows You To Make Google Drive Attachments Work Like Real Files Instead Of Links

In an update to Gmail's web interface, Google has added support for attaching files stored in Drive to your emails like conventional attachments. Before, you had no choice but to share Drive files as links or upload them yourself. This is especially useful when sharing files to people who aren't using Gmail and therefore don't enjoy the smooth integration with Drive that Gmail has.
