Google Docs is a web-based word processor included for free as part of the office suite offered through the Google Drive service. Docs is available as both a web application and mobile app and provides a means of creating and editing documents from anywhere. Here are three benefits of using this powerful and convenient application.
1. Collaborate Live
One of the most distinct features of Google Docs is the ability to collaborate with others in real-time from anywhere around the world. This eliminates the need to email documents back and forth to others then wait for feedback and revisions. Instead, users can work together on a document at the same time. Communication is live and all changes made to a document are automatically saved.
2. Save Automatically
When creating or editing files in Google Docs, your work is automatically saved as you go. This eliminates the need to continuously save and sync changes along the way.
3. Access and Edit Microsoft Word Documents
Google Docs allows you to download and edit Microsoft Word documents for even more versatility. You can also upload Docs files to your computer and save them as Word documents, increasing the power and capability of collaboration.
