The first step towards Google Office?

Google Office

Google has recently aquired the web-based word processing app known as Writely. I haven’t ever used Writely, but from what I know, it’s a word processing tool that allows you to import, edit, and save Word documents. You can also create new documents and have a feature for using Writely to post to your blog, plus the other standard “Web 2.0” stuff allowing sharing and collaboration. And the best part, it’s all web-based.

BetaNews had a good thought. This could be the first step towards the Google Office.

With Microsoft’s new Live services and the recent unveiling of the Origami, Google needs something big to get them ahead of their biggest competition. Aquiring Writely now means they have an excellent start and the main component to an online office suite. Don’t be suprised to see a Google Spreadsheet, Google Presentation, etc. They already have a great mail client in Gmail and we’ve all seen by now the evidence of CL2, Google’s future calendar project.

It won’t be long now.
