Google is closing an acquisition of the Office document collaboration service DocVerse, according to a report by TechCrunch. DocVerse syncs whatever changes you make to any Office document to the screens of your collaborators.
Syncing works the same way that Google docs is doing in your browser, except that DocVerse is enabling this right in Microsoft Office—via an add-in. With DocVerse, worth about $25 million, Google will have a direct connection to Microsoft Office. With Office 2010, Microsoft is aiming into the same direction. DocVerse works seamlessly with Office 2010.
Does this bring up a new war between Microsoft and Google?
