Introducing the Google Drive plug-in for Microsoft Office

Quote:
With Google Drive, you can keep all your important files in one place, then open them with your choice of apps and devices. Building on this open approach, we recently made it possible to launch your favorite desktop applications directly from Google Drive. And today we’re taking it a step further by bringing Google Drive to Microsoft Office. Using the new Google Drive plug-in, people using Office for Windows can now open their Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents stored in Drive, then save any changes back to Drive once they’re done.



If you’re working on a document, spreadsheet or presentation that’s on your computer, you can also save that file to Google Drive, directly from the Office apps. This is especially useful for sharing files with teams, or for accessing your files across devices.



With this plug-in, you can use the apps you’re already comfortable with, while benefitting from the security and convenience of Google Drive.

Mhhh... by the comments on the original blog, I'll wait until they update this and works like Onedrive integration does. It would be really nice to save and work on documents in my g-drive as I currently do on my Onedrive

Thanks for the info Brink! I'll look forward to see how far this goes

It seems to work nicely on Office 2010.
