A Google plug-in that allows Microsoft Office documents to be edited and shared in Google Docs has proved too popular.
Google introduced the beta-level Cloud Connect code plug-in today, but said that all invitations had been taken up in under 24 hours.
The plug-in was developed by DocVerse, which was acquired by Google in March, and allows users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 to upload and share data on Google's cloud services.
"Once in the Google cloud, documents can be easily shared and even simultaneously edited by multiple people, from right within Office," said Google in a blog post.
"A full revision history is kept as the files are edited, and users can revert to earlier versions in one click. These are all features that Google Docs users already enjoy, and now we're bringing them to Microsoft Office."
The plug-in is not available for Apple users, however, owing to the lack of support for open APIs on Microsoft Office for Mac.
"We are unable to make Google Cloud Connect available on Macs at this time," said Google. "We look forward to when that time comes so we can provide this feature to our Mac customers as well."
The company has a web page for people wishing to be notified when Google Cloud Connect becomes available.
