Google Docs Viewer now handles more file types

Great news everyone, Google Docs Viewer now allows you to view 12 more file types.

Before this Google Docs Viewer only views PDF files and Microsoft Word and Microsoft Power Point files. Google announced today via their Google Docs Blog that users are now able to view 12 more types on Google Docs Viewer:

Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)

Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)

Apple Pages (.PAGES)

Adobe Illustrator (.AI)

Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)

Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)

Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)

PostScript (.EPS, .PS)

TrueType (.TTF)

XML Paper Specification (.XPS)

When this file types are attached in GMail, a “View” button would appear at the side that view the document/file on Google Docs Viewer.  But do note, you still need to use the original softwares of this file types to create them, you can’t create this files on Google Docs.

This is certainly a much needed upgrade by Google to make users buy the Chrome Notebook and Chrome OS that should be releasing later this year.

Do give us your comments on your view of this upgrade.
