With the integration of QuickOffice app into Google Docs, Sheets and Sides Google has decided to discontinue QuickOffice apps available for free on Android and iOS.
In the coming weeks Google will remove the app from both Google Play Store and App Store. The announcement was made at the Google I/O last week, where the company spoke about its three core apps – Docs, Slides and Sheets.
In 2012 Google acquired QuickOffice and published it on Android and iOS app stores last year in September.
The company posted on their official blog, “With the integration of Quickoffice into the Google Docs, Sheets and Slides apps, the Quickoffice app will be unpublished from Google Play and the App Store in the coming weeks.
Existing users with the app can continue to use it, but no features will be added and new users will not be able to install the app.” Now users can import documents by preserving all of Microsoft Office’s formatting.
Google Sheets and Docs are available as standalone apps for Android and iOS users, and now Google Slides also available on Google Play store for editing presentations on mobile devices.
