How to edit Word documents directly in Docs using a Chrome extension

You don’t need to install Microsoft 365 to edit Word documents and other Office files! Just open and edit Office files on the web in one of the following ways:

  • Using a Chrome browser
  • From a Chromebook
  • From Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides

Examples:

  • Work with clients and customers who use Office files
  • Edit your old Office files, even if you no longer have the software
  • View and edit files without buying extra software

If you’re using a Chromebook or the most recent versions of the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps on your phone or tablet, you can already edit Office files.

If you’re using a computer:

  1. Download the Office Editing for Docs, Sheets & Slides Chrome extension.
  2. From Google Drive, double-click any Office file to start editing.
