Google drive is your personal hard drive space to store, access, create,edit, and share files and folders of all types. Google drive also includes Google apps like Google Docs (Word), Google Sheets (Excel), and Google Slides (Powerpoint). With Google Drive, you can now share files and folders with other contacts to enable collaborative working. What’s most interesting is that changes occur in real time which means that you can see the changes as they’re being made and also know who is making the changes. You also have the option of downloading Google drive to your desktop in order to access files remotely. Google drive is available on all mobile devices which gives you access to your files on your smartphone, no matter where you are.
