DOC and DOCX files are an essential part of your everyday life if you are related to academics, education, business, or work in an office. With its countless features, MS Word provides users with options to create diverse documents. Assignments, business proposals, articles, blogs, thesis, and research are documented in DOCX format. Consequently, these files are sent and received by other people who may or may not have MS Word on their devices. Therefore, there are options through which you can view a DOC or DOCX file.



The best and credible way to view a DOC or DOCX file is to use MS Word. You can easily download it on your PC through the Web. MS Word can also be downloaded on your smartphone through Play Store or I-Store. The app size is 68 MB and provides almost all features of MS Word on PC. The app will enable you to easily open DOC or DOCX files on your smartphone. It also enables users to edit and make changes in any desired document. Thus, it not only has read-only mode but can also help your edit existing documents and create new documents.


Read All Documents is another app available in the Play Store that allows users to read all kinds of documents including DOC, DOCX, PDF, Excel files, and PPT, etc. The app size is only 16 MB which is quite amazing considering the number of different file formats that it can open. The only limitation is that you can only open the files in Read-Only mode. The files cannot be edited through this app, as the name already suggests that users can only READ documents of all kinds. Still, the app sounds amazing to me as it occupies little space as compared to the options it provides.


With the option to open almost 150 different file formats, File Viewer has made it to the list of options for viewing DOC and DOCX files. But guess what? In addition to DOC and DOCX files, users can view a variety of file formats such as PDFs, PPTX, XPS, JPG, TIFF, SVG, and many more. Hence, File Viewer provides a plethora of options with a user-friendly interface.


An online alternative for viewing DOC and DOCX files is Groupdocs. If you have to urgently view a DOC or DOCX file in your smartphone and have no access to MS word and cannot download any file viewer due to storage issue or any other XYZ problem, fear not! All you need is an internet connection. The website can be accessed through any device with an internet connection. To access the service, follow these steps:
