In short I would say that it getting popular at a very high rate and now when Microsoft has also released their online version of the tool, it becomes mandatory for Google to equip Google Docs with some extra features so that the can facilitate the Microsoft Office users.
Google Docs now has some new formats of file or I should say that they have expanded their range of compatibility for the document formats. 12 new file type formats have been added on Google Docs and it is more versatile than ever. Let us take a look at all the new formats introduced in Google Docs.
