Microsoft Office files are supported by Google’s Workspace products, such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides, enabling cross-platform collaboration. But it’s understandable that occasionally there will be compatibility problems because there are various development teams at work and a diverse feature set. Fortunately, Google will notify users of such known concerns, allowing them to be aware of any potential issues before working on the file.

Google Workspace tools such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides will warn users of any known compatibility issues with Office files before editing.
