About Viewer app

Microsoft Word is the world's most popular text document editor. People use Word documents (DOC, DOCX, RTF) to edit and distribute contracts, articles, legal, and many other documents. Due to the editing capabilities provided, documents contain a variety of styles, tables, building blocks, and other formatting objects. To preserve the structure, content, and layout of a document while rendering, each element must be carefully rendered and properly positioned relative to other elements.

GroupDocs.Viewer is a fast and efficient API for rendering files of over 170 different types. Powered by a high-performance cloud-based GroupDocs server, it displays the XML files in the browser. GroupDocs.Viewer technologies make it possible to achieve an ideal and identical display of a document on any platform.

This free online application based on the GroupDocs.Viewer API displays the Word files on your device. Even if your file is encrypted, you can enter a password and view the file. We value your privacy, so the file and the password you specified are visible to you only. You can print the file you are viewing directly from your browser. You can also download the PDF file to share with someone or view later. The application works on any device, including smartphones.
