Benefits of Google Drive other than cloud storagePosted by Swaviman Kumar in: computer tricks Internet
Yes, as the heading says Google Drive is having a number of utilities which a few of us know about. You can also say it confidently that one day this one of the G.Drive will change the way we live. Though initially it was started to provide cloud storage to its users but these days it has extended its services. You can create documents, presentations etc there. So here is a list of some of its great utilities.
These are the basic functions that is provided to every gmail account holder. Using ‘Documents’ you can write any document and edit it as per your requirement. This is a perfect substitute to Microsoft Word. This Drive needs internet which MS Word doesn’t. But one can share the documents on google drive with the world and also a second person can edit that document if access is provided.
Using ‘Forms’ you can easily create any type of form as per your requirement like admission form, contact form, complaint form etc. the feature ‘Presentation’ allows you to open or create any slide or powerpoint presentation. The best part is it provides opportunity for real time collaboration which MS doesn’t. But in terms of features provided by MS(Microsoft) the google docs lags the competition.
‘Spreadsheet’ has the same applications as the MS Excel. Also it gives a feature called ‘Drawing’ that works even better than the ‘paint’ feature of Microsoft. So this one is surely a good news for kids who love art.
Besides the above mentioned document related ones one can add many extra features (categorised as Business, News, Education, Entertainment, Life style, Game, Productivity, Social and Utility) to his drive account for free. They are ‘PDF Viewer’, ‘ZIP Extractor’, ‘Video Editor & converters’, ‘AutoCAD 360’, ‘Photo Editors’, ‘Animate Videos and presentations’, ‘Music Creator and converter’, ‘GeoGebra Mathematical software’, ‘online emulators’, ‘Notepads and script editors’ and many more.
We mentioned here a few applications those you can use in your daily life without any need for another software to be installed.
