Google’s Cloud Connect plugin, which launched late last year for a limited number of users, is now available for free download. It’s a useful little tool for those who use Microsoft Office and would like some of the advantages that cloud-based document editors such as Google Docs offer.
Cloud Connect simply connects the two—your Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents are automatically synced to your Google account, and any changes you may make using Google Docs will be reflected in your local documents. It adds features native to Google Docs such as simultaneous collaboration (allowing multiple people to edit a draft), revision history, unique URLs and what Google calls “simple sharing”.
