Google is among the biggest companies to offer a free Microsoft Word alternative. As tech companies were skipping making programs and introducing fully featured websites, Google had its engineers preparing Google Docs.
Google Docs is an online service that lets you create documents inside of your web browser. There’s no software to install, though you do need a Google account. This is because all the documents you create get saved on Google Drive. Drive allows for easy share and archiving.
The web app itself provides plenty of templates. It saves everything that you create in Google Docs in a format that other programs will understand. Real-time collaboration tools allow you to see changes that your friends or co-workers make as they happen. Easy sharing is included too; you can email anything that you create on the service with just a few clicks.
Google Docs is completely free. Most people think that you have to be connected to the internet to use it. You don’t, though. The company’s Chrome browser will let you continue working on the things you create in Google Docs away from an internet connection.
