Google acquires Quickoffice, promises to bring productivity tools to a new level

Out of the blue Google just announced it has acquired Quickoffice, the popular productivity suite for viewing and editing document files for smartphones.

 

Google hasn’t provided much details about the acquisition, so it’s unknown whether we should expect an update to Quickoffice or whether it’ll even continue its existence under the same moniker.

What’s pretty certain is that Google will take advantage of the company’s technology for interoperability with the popular documents file formats. Here’s what Alan Warren, Engineering Director at Google had to say about the deal.

Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite.

Quickoffice has a strong base of users, and we look forward to supporting them while we work on an even more seamless, intuitive and integrated experience.
