Google has today introduced a new feature which allow G Suite users to comment on Microsoft Office and PDF files, opening the doors for better collaboration on the web.

The feature which is rolling out to users on the web from today, allows G Suite users to comment on Microsoft Office files, PDFs and images, without first having to convert them into Docs, Sheets or Slides.

The feature allows for better interoperability and collaboration with MS Office users able to see and respond to comments without opening Google Docs.

The feature means you no longer have to convert the document if you simply want to view, review and add comments to a document.

The feature is rolling out on the web now, with Google expecting it to take up to 2 weeks to roll out fully.

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.
