Office 2.0: Google and Zoho Announcements

Category: Showcase

The web “Office” applications are here. At the Office 2.0 conference we saw two announcements in the office arena:

Google Docs and Spreadsheets

Catchy name aside, Google Docs now combines Writely and Spreadsheets in one. With it you can:

  • Use our online editor to format documents, spell-check and more.
  • Upload Word documents, OpenOffice, RTF, HTML or text.
  • Download documents to your desktop as Word, PDF and more.
  • View your documents’ revision history and roll back to any version.
  • Invite others to share your documents by e-mail address.
  • Edit documents online with whomever you choose.
  • Publish documents online to the world, or to just who you choose.
  • Post your documents to your blog.

Here we see the Google suite slowly getting together.

Zoho Virtual Office

Zoho has had a ton of services in the past. Now they have announced ZohoX, their virtual office suite, that brings them all together. The apps include Email, Calendars, Documents, Tasks, Notes, Contacts,Groups and a lot more.

[…] I have been testing the new Zoho Virtual Office (ZohoX) and am now ready to post about it. In reading original hype-o-ganda pertaining to it and the Office 2.0 Conference, I became under the impression that they were integrating Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet, and Zoho Show into it (i.e. files all saved to VO filesystem, no cheap inline frames, etc.), but I couldn’t be more mistaken.
