Google Docs can now read, convert ‘less popular’ file types

Here's one more reason to switch to Docs, Sheets and Slides, Google's free web-based productivity suite: it now plays nice with some "less common" file formats.

Google said its productivity suite now supports older formats like TIFF, and non-RGB color profiles.

"Starting today, larger images, images in less common formats (like TIFF), and images with non-RGB color profiles (like CMYK), can also be imported to and exported from the Google Docs editors on the web successfully," the Google Apps team said in a June 22 blog post.

It noted converting a file to Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides lets a person edit, collaborate on, and share the file online.

Before this, Google's suite can convert Microsoft Office files as well as JPEG, PNG, EMF, and WMF formats. — Joel Locsin/LBG, GMA News
