Google Apps Get Docx and Xlsx support

Users of Google Apps can now upload documents created using the native Office 2007 format.

Early this week Google answered one of the most common questions about uploading documents to Google Apps. Previously, Google Docs allowed the upload of documents and spreadsheets created in versions of Word or Excel up to Office 2003, or those created using open formats such as those supported by Open Office. Office 2007, however, was not supported. On Monday Google announced on the official Google Docs blog that users may now upload their Office 2007 documents and spreadsheets to Google Docs.
