A few months Gmail started displaying PDF files in the Google Viewer whenever users clicked on the View button for PDF attachments received in mails.

GoogleSystem has found a way to use the Google Viewer to view DOC as well as PPT attachments in Google Viewer.

Follow the steps below to view your DOC or PPT attachments using Google Viewer:

  • Click on View as HTML found below the attachment

  • You should now be able to view the attachments using Google Viewer.

Google viewer lets you search over your attachments as well as displaying the attachment in its original format.
