Is there a way to convert a Document that you create in Google Docs to .docx or .odt?

Edit: To be more specific, I am looking for a software that would be able to archive this.

  • Google Docs allows you to download the file: File > Download As. Is this not sufficient for what you need? .docx and .odt are both supported file formats for download. – OnenOnlyWalter Jan 8 '20 at 18:00

Updated answer

(following OP's comment)

To convert Google Docs en masse in a folder:

  1. Select all of them using Shift or/and CTRL (Cmd for Mac)
  2. Right click and select Download.
  3. The Drive automatically converts all the selected documents and packs them into a ZIP file.
  4. Save the created zip file. When un-zipped all files are converted.

Original answer

You can do that right from within the menu in Google Sheets.

File > Download > pick one
