Google doc viewer in Mibbit – from the archives

Looking at the more recent additions to Google Doc Viewer I thought it would be worth sharing our article updating support for the viewer in Mibbit.  I notice since we made that update additional formats including .zip archives have become available and so these can, and their files, be viewed alongside chats in Mibbit main client and embeddable widget.

Here’s a shot of the .zip archive viewer working;

 

 

 

 

 

All useful for getting stuff done whilst in the chat window.

Here’s the original article from the archives reproduced in full;

 

Google doc viewer support upgraded

 

We’ve supported Google’s awesome document viewer since last year when we introduced it alongside support for YouTube and image thumb-nailing.  Now, Google have provided an upgrade so it reads a bunch of new file types, this is not just limited to rounding out Microsoft document support but adds Postscript, Adobe, Autocad and more, we’ve checked it out and added it into the client.

If you haven’t used the viewer before give it a try, it loads up in the extra pane on the right hand side of chat and can be popped out if needed.  See the long list of file formats the viewer will load - it’s amazing it will read Adobe Illustrator, Psd, and all the latest Microsoft Office formats.  Enjoy :)
