Google Drive Now Let You Comment Directly On Microsoft Office Files

Google Drive new feature lets users comment directly on Microsoft Office files, PDF files and images uploaded on it. With this new feature, Users will now be able to comment on files right from Google Drive, rather than having to open them in Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides first.

Before users can only view Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files stored in Google Drive freely, but they had to convert them into a Docs, Slides, or Sheets file first in order to insert a comment.

Google says, "When you're collaborating with an external agency, negotiating a contract with a client or coordinating a sales agreement with a supplier, chances are you're dealing with multiple file formats. With this update, you can now comment on those files in Drive the way you're used to in Google Docs."


How To Comment Directly From Google Drive
To use the new feature, you have to highlight the area where you wish to comment on in Preview mode. Now, click on the Comment icon type and drop your comment.

With this update users can comment, assign tasks, or mention coworkers, and other users can reply back even if they are not using G Suite.
