The purchase of Quick Office by Google in June last year is finally showing results, in ChromeOS at least; with the newest flag to be enabled allowing users to edit Microsoft Word and Excel files in the browser.

The option is available via the chrome://flags tab and finding the ‘Enable document editing’ flag and enabling it. This flag is only available in the Developer Channel in ChromeOS. While Developer mode can give some interesting results and tends to be on occasion a little unstable it can offer some pretty good perks.

If you find any bugs, they should be reported via this custom link.

Enable the flag and try it out for yourself.

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
