If you’re using a Chromebook or the most recent versions of the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps on your phone or tablet, you can already edit Office files.

If you’re using a computer

  1. Download the Office Editing for Docs, Sheets & Slides Chrome extension.
  2. From Google Drive, double-click any Office file to start editing. The file will open inside the Chrome extension, and changes are saved automatically.
