Google has recently we had told you that Google has added support for XLS, PPTX, AL, PSD, SVG, TTF, XPS, PS files in Google docs.
Now Google has took a nice step and it allows you to view RAR and ZIP archives files in Docs, many times when we had so many files we go for archives.
If you get any Rar or Zip file as an attachment in your Gmail then you don’t have to download them just click on View.
Now It will open your archive in Google Docs and if you had any support file then you can view them on Google Docs.
When you hover your mouse over the files you will see option which you will see in other uploaded doc files like View, Save To Google Docs or Print as PDF.
ZIP and RAR archives that are embedded inside other archives also work. For example, if you have a RAR file inside a ZIP file you can just click on that file to access the embedded archive.
This feature extends to Google Docs for mobile, too. For each viewable file (including embedded ZIP or RAR archives) there is a link to view.
