Google has just released an update to the Android Drive app (Google Drive), which solves the problem that Android devices can't open “ password-protected Microsoft Office documents”. Normally, the web application can open and view Office files such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint directly. However, if the user puts a password on the file, he will see the prompt “Please enter the password” (as on the PC) before opening.


In the case of sharing a cloud account, but only allowing specific people to view the document,OfficeFile encryption is really useful. However, there are still some obstacles to the interoperability between MS Office and the competition platform:

On Android,MicrosoftRegular updates for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote are available, and MS Word has more than 500 million downloads in the Google Play store (score 4.5 / review 2 million+).

However, as the main battleground of Google, its own Android platform obviously does not allow others to take the lead. So in the Google Drive for Android release, it finally introduced support for "password protected MS Office documents".

As a ‘ native & rsquo; cloud solution, Google Drive provides better support for MS Office documents, helping to improve the office environment and school file processing capabilities.

At the same time, the new version includes other bug fixes and performance improvements, so it is recommended that all Android users update as soon as possible. Download address (Google Play):
