Google merges Writely and Spreadsheet

11Oct06

Google released their new service Docs and Spreadsheet. In simple words – writely + spreadsheet = docs and spreadsheet. But that is not all. A few good mods have been done, which makes life a lot more easier. Firstly, both the docs and spreadsheets are at the same place thought there is no virtual interaction between them. But I guess this helps people to make effective use of both. Secondly, you have a common file list and more importantly the chat feature which writely didn’t have is now available in docs (Spreadsheet always had it). Also docs now looks more like your gmail’s “compose new mail”.

Writely is now redirecting to docs.google.com. Google Docs and Spreadsheet requires you to run IE6 or Firefox. It is not supported by Opera or Safari😦

Two things which I liked about the new service are:

1) One click import of all your writely files.
2) You can email documents to your google ID and they will automatically appear in your D&S account.

You can save your documents as PDF. Also the spreadsheets link in your google account toolbar is replaced with the new docs and spreadsheet link.
