Drive, Docs, and Collaboration
What is Google Drive?
Drive lets you keep all your work in one place, view different file formats without buying extra software, and access your files from any device. With Google Drive, you can open your files from your computer’s Drive folder on the desktop or from your browser. Files you create with Google Docs open in your browser or mobile app. Other files in your Drive folder will open in their regular applications (like Adobe Reader for PDF files) on your computer.
What are Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides?
Google Docs is Google's browser-based word processor. You can create, edit, and share documents online and access them from any computer with an internet connection.
What sets Google Docs apart from its main desktop competitor, Microsoft Word, are its collaborative features. Google Docs was one of the first word processors to offer shared online document editing.
Google has made it incredibly easy to share documents across platforms and work on them together in real time from a browser window. Your collaborators don't even need a Google account to view or edit Google documents you share with them.
