Google has stepped up its war against Microsoft Office with the acquisition of DocVerse, a company that offers a rather useful plug-in for Microsoft Office, allowing users of the desktop software to collaborate on Office documents, despite the document being edited in various places at the same time. It’ll be really interesting to see how Google can utilize the tech that it has just acquired to improve Google Docs and further challenge Microsoft Office’s dominance. New sign-ups for DocVerse have currently been suspended, but existing users will be able to continue using the product as usual.

Official announcement.
