In November 2010, Google announced that it had (re) launched a beta test of the technology to a limited group of testers under the new name Google Cloud Connect. Today, Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office is available to all Windows users.

Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office is available as a free plug-in to Office 2003, 2007, and 2010 for Windows. Cloud Connect is not yet available for Mac operating systems.
