Google recently added Suggested Edits to Google Docs as a way to make edits that can be accepted or rejected by the owner. As many of us still work with people still using Microsoft Word, and some of us still use Word for some tasks, Google is extending Suggested Edits to further improve interoperability between Google Docs and Microsoft Word.
When opening a Microsoft Word .docx file in Google Docs, “Tracked Changes” are now converted to “Suggested Edits”.
The biggest concern for most users about moving to Google Docs is the ability to work with those still using Word. With this new feature, the gap continues to narrow.
