Google Docs, Sheets and Slides offers a great way of working whilst on the move.
Today, Google has released a number of updates which has just made these fantastic apps even better.
Earlier this year, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides underwent a fairly major overhaul which included a new, sleek and user friendly design interface which helped to iron out a few accessibility issues.
The most notable of the updates means that Google Docs now offers better support for opening and editing Microsoft Office files, as well as being able to access and create Docs, Sheets or Slides offline.
It’s time you tried Google Doc, Sheets and Slides
If you’re not familiar with Google Docs, it is Google’s web based office suite, which is free of charge to use and which is offered as part of the Google Drive cloud storage service.
Google Docs, Sheets and Slides are really useful as they allow you to create and edit documents online in real time, whilst collaborating with other users. This is really handy as it means that a team of people can work in a spreadsheet or documents at the same time.
With Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, you work on your documents or spreadsheets from your web browser. The documents are then stored online in your Google Drive meaning that you can access them from any computer or mobile device which is connected to the internet.
Google Docs, Sheets and Slides are an excellent alternative to Microsoft Office. No longer do you have to fork out to buy a license for Office or run the risk of using illegal counterfeit software, as is the norm in offices throughout Thailand.
How many times have you been working away on a document in Microsoft Office only for your computer to crash unexpectedly and resulting in you losing all over of your unsaved work?
The good things about Google Docs, Sheets and Slides is that because they are web based, all documents are saved in real time, meaning that if your computer was to ever crash unexpectedly, you won’t lose any unsaved data and you are able to just pick up where you left off.
