Fortunately, there is a method that will allow you to put your signature in a simpler way, you only need to have a smartphone or a tablet connected to a Wi-Fi network or with mobile data. Do you want to learn it? Here we tell you.

Microsoft Office is now compatible with Google Drive
For the sake of productivity in times of remote work. The integration of Google Drive and Microsoft Office has finally been consummated amid the changes made to the Workspace project of Mountain View. The documents in formats such as .doc, .ppt, and .docx are already editable from a browser directly.
Previously, both Google Drive and Microsoft Office handled their own formats. In the case of Microsoft, the already generalized .doc and .docx could be opened in the Mountain View platform, but editing them required conversion to Docs, which caused some changes in the document.
