Google Docs and Google Drive


I have been using Google Docs for quite some time now and to be honest, I do not know how I lived my computer life without it before. I mean, I used Google Drive purely for storage in the past but it was only about a year ago when I found out its true potential. Google has pulled its Docs, Sheets, and Slides services into Google Drive, allowing me to share and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets and presentations seamlessly from within Drive. What’s more, none of these documents will take up any of my 15Gb allowance. Gmail also allows me to quickly attach documents from Google Drive, while it’s also possible to set attachments to automatically save to the cloud. Google has also integrated its Google photo sharing facilities into Drive, which allows me to automatically upload photos taken with my phone to Google Drive. What’s more, if they’re less than 2048 x 2048 in size, my uploaded photos won’t count against my allowance. Pretty good eh?

All told, Google Drive offers a very comprehensive set of tools to use. If you’re familiar and comfortable with using Google services, it’s hard to argue against using it. And that is why I tell all my friends to get on it
