Google recently announced that it is killing Quickoffice, the word-processing app for Android and iOS.

The app will no longer come preloaded on Android devices, and in the coming weeks it'll disappear from Google Play and the Apple App Store, CNET reported.

However, existing users can still use it, but Google will no longer supports it and won't push out any new updates.

Google didn't mention the reason for the action, but earlier this year Google introduced standalone apps for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, essentially moving all the editing features from Quickoffice to those apps.

Users now will need to download all three if you work with documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on your mobile device, while Quickoffice could edit all of those files in one place.
