Google Buys Quickoffice, Enhancements To Google Drive Incoming?

Quickoffice is easily one of the most popular productivity apps on the Android platform and it’s about to get a lot more Google-y as the company announces they have acquired Quickoffice. Google just announced via the Google Blog they have officially acquired Quickoffice and will integrate their existing products with Google Apps.

Is it possible this acquisition could lead to some major improvements in Google’s Drive platform with a major emphasis on pushing their Docs platform forward? It absolutely seems like that’s what Google is after here and we’re all for it. How about you?

We’re happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions.

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.

We’re excited to welcome the Quickoffice team and their users to Google.
