Google acquires Quickoffice
Leading search engine mammoth Google announced on Tuesday about its acquisition of mobile office software company Quickoffice.
"Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite," said Google in its official blog.
However, the details of the acquisition were not disclosed, Xinhua reported.
Launched in 1997, Quickoffice was established in 1997 and is a leading provider of mobile office document software for devices running Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating systems that allows the users to open, view and edit Microsoft Office files with complete document data integrity.
The company said on Tuesday that the product of Quickoffice has been downloaded on 300 million devices so far in 180 countries.
Analysts said Google may release its own mobile office software suite as Microsoft is likely to hold back Office from other mobile phones, except its Windows 8.
Acquisition of Quickoffice has come out to be the Google's second major acquisition this week
Quickoffice is Google's second major acquisition this week after it announced the purchase of instant messaging firm Meebo on Monday.
