Revealed in conjunction with Google Cloud Next 2019, changes span the breadth of G Suite for Education, which the search giant says is now used by more than 90 million students and educators around the globe.

What Type of Files is Supported on G Suites?

Captions will be available for English in the U.S. on Slideshows created in Google Slides.

Another new announcement revolves around bringing Connected Sheets to G Suite customers.

Google also added cloud telephony to G Suite with "Voice", giving users a phone number that works from anywhere on any device.

Google has just announced that it's adding Microsoft Office document support to its very own G Suite productivity suite in an attempt to provide customers with a more straightforward way to work with documents. Standard Google Account holders will see this coming soon as well.

Google is presently working to build out more features in Google Sheets, Google Docs, and Google Drive too.

Luck for us, things are about to change for the better. Up to this point, users have been able to view things like Word documents, but you've needed to convert the file to a Google Docs file in order to save edits or fully collaborate with other users on the file.

Earlier, you either had to convert Office files to formats supported by Google Docs, or use Office Compatibility Mode (OCM) with limited functionality. Users receive Office documents on Gmail and want to open and edit them right there in Google Docs.
