Google has provided us with some of the best cloud-based apps on the market, and almost all of them are free. The G Suite is something I utilize every day in various forms. Since it’s back-to-school time, I wanted to share some ways you may be able to save money by using the great tools that Google has to offer.
Google Docs is a Word Processing App
The first, and most useful to me, is Google Docs. Docs is Google’s version of a trimmed down Microsoft Word where all of your documents are stored online in Google Drive and may be downloaded to your computer. When I’m not writing for OneSupport or raising kids, I’m a full-time student, and Docs makes my life so much easier. I can type up whatever I need, whenever I need to, and as long as I can get online, I can do it pretty much anywhere. The app is available in the App Store and the Play Store.
Google Drive Helps You on the Go
When taking your Docs on the go, you’ll want to use Google Drive with it. While you can download the documents that you create, Drive will give you the freedom to securely store and access your documents online at any time. I can create something on my personal computer and access it from any computer, phone, or tablet almost anywhere in the world. For me, this means being able to pull up my portfolio whenever the need should arise, and then I can share my documents.
Every part of the G Suite has a share option, or you can share directly from the Drive. The great thing about the share is that you can share as view only or by allowing the other party to comment or edit what you share. This makes collaboration quick and easy. With Drive, you get 15GB of space completely free. Simply create a free Gmail address. Should you need more storage, there’s a monthly fee, but it is reasonably priced.
Google Sheets, Calendar, and News
While Docs and Drive might get the most use, there are quite a few other programs in the Google suite. “Sheets” lets you create spreadsheets. Slides lets you create slideshows (think PowerPoint). Then there are Calendar and News.
The G Suite is Free
All of the programs that make up the G Suite have a free app that can be downloaded to phones and tablets creating a seamless transition from one device to another. Explore the full G Suite today for free by logging into your Gmail account. If you aren’t using a Gmail account, sign up for a free one today. You’ll have easy access from Gmail and new tabs in Chrome.
