What is an ODT file?

ODT files are commonly created and opened by the Writer word processor, which is one of several programs available in the OpenOffice and LibreOffice suites. It is similar to the Word program available in the Microsoft Office suite. The ODT file is the main file used by Writer to save documents the same way that Word saves documents in the .DOCX file.

OpenDocument text files can be opened and edited with any OpenOffice-compatible program, including: NeoOffice (Mac), AbiWord (Mac & Windows), and KWord (Unix). They can also be imported into Google Docs, Google's web-based word processor included with Google Drive. ODT files can also be opened in Microsoft Word and saved as DOCX files.

NOTE: Apache OpenOffice was formerly known as OpenOffice.org.
