Google Docs: your documents always at hand

Google Docs is a complete and versatile online text processor that allows you to store your documents in the cloud.

You can create documents with text, graphics, images, tables, links and much more, since it has many tools and formatting settings.

To use it on your computer, you don't need to download anything. You can log in with your Google account in the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Safari (on macOS)
  • Opera

Google Docs also supports mobile devices:

  • Smartphones and tablets. Download the app from Google Play Store (Android) and Apple Store (iOS).
  • Chromebooks. Save documents straight to Drive.

How Google Docs works

Creating and managing your documents in Google Docs is easy and intuitive.

Once you are logged into the app, you can create a document or open an existing one to edit it.

The interface is similar to traditional word processors, but Google Docs has key features for collaborative and remote work:

  • Share your document: you can share your document with as many users as you want (they don't necessarily need to have a Google account).
  • Auto-save: Google Docs automatically saves changes made to a document while you are working on it. This feature allows you to concentrate without worrying about power outages or unexpected errors.
  • Revision history: The app allows you to view and restore previous versions of all your documents.
  • Comments and notes: Other users with whom you have shared the file will be able to write comments and suggestions, making collaborative work much easier and faster.
  • Integration with Google Drive: Documents are automatically saved to Google Drive, providing a secure form of cloud storage.

Sharing is nice but... Is it safe?

Sharing your documents in Google Docs is easy and secure. First, we must say that your documents are within the Google Drive platform, which means that it is backed by one of the world's leading technology and cybersecurity companies.

In addition, Google Docs uses advanced security protocols, such as SSL encryption, to protect the privacy of your data. Your documents are stored on Google's servers and you can customize access permissions.

Sharing a document is very easy, you just have to:

  • Click on the “share” button.
  • Enter the email address of the person with whom you want to share the document.
  • Configure the permissions: editor, reader, commentator.
  • You will also be able to configure whether the file is shared only with users who have permissions (requires your authorization by email) or with any user who has the link.

If I have Microsoft Word... Do I need Google Docs?

While Microsoft Word offers more advanced formatting and design features; Google Docs has the following advantages:

  • It's free: Docs is completely free, you just need to have a Google account.
  • It's accessible: You will be able to access and edit your documents from anywhere.
  • It's collaborative: Share your project with your team immediately without uploading files or sending emails.
  • It's easy to use: It has an intuitive interface and requires no additional software installation.

As you can see, Google Docs is a versatile and powerful tool. Although it may lack certain advanced features of other word processing programs, its ease of use and the ability to share content in real time make Google Docs the app of choice for individuals and businesses looking for an efficient and affordable solution.
