Pros: Thanks to Google Docs I no longer depend on installing any office software to write my documents, I can create my documents from any internet device and keep them stored in the cloud, at the same time I can share my documents with anyone and invite them to make contributions and edit them. It is a very useful and easy to use tool.

Cons: I really can not say much against Google Docs, sometimes it can be a bit tedious if our internet connection is slow.

Overall: It is an excellent and very useful tool, I use it almost every day, I can access from anywhere and follow up on the editions of the documents I share.

Pros: It has many features that make it easy to use. It is a bit like Microsoft Word and you are able to insert pictures and tables. Another great feature is that the documents are saved online so it can be accessed anywhere.

Cons: It would be nice if there were more customizable keyboard shortcuts. Other than that there isn't anything that I dislike about it.

Pros: - Ability for multiple people to edit the document in real-time is phenomenal. It undoubtably saves countless hours.

- Most of the functions are similar to other, similar software, so the learning curve is very low.

Cons: - It's unclear how secure documents are. It is not possible to password-protect them.

- Searching for documents by title-based keywords is extremely difficult and, in some cases, completely ineffective.

Overall: Fantastic and free alternative to other, similar software! I can easily keep track of notes and writings of all kinds. Highly recommended!

Pros: What I like most about this software is the cost. Compared to most cloud-hosted applications, the cost is substantially less. Additionally, it makes it easy to throw documents together on mobile devices-portability is great. Finally, working as a team on a document has never been easier.

Cons: I wish there was a way to maintain formatting across different file formats. It does a good job at preserving formatting for Microsoft documents but could be improved.

Google docs is always there for you. it might sound corny but it is true.

Pros: Google docs brings everything online. It really helps with collaboration, there is no need to upload files over to the cloud or forget "did I upload the latest version?".
The tool is also free which makes the entry barrier almost zero.

Cons: The only con would be that offline cache is not on by default for all google docs.
I never had any issues over 15 years. Only once the service was down and it was close to one of my deadlines, but you have this in any online service.

Pros: The fact that it is free to use, always editing offline, automatically saves progress. Most especially allows multiple edits on the same document by different users simultaneously

Pros: Google Docs is great if you are sharing documents with others. It autosaves every few minutes and can track changes that users make. Because it completely cloud-based, all you will need is access to the internet! Sending drafts back and forth is a dream! Instead of using a traditional Word document where you have to "save as" and email as an attachment, you can seamlessly make changes and suggestions in real-life time!

Cons: This is a web-based solution - so if you do not have reliable access to the internet, you are out of luck! If you have unreliable access to the web - or if you are concerned about losing a big document, make sure you make a backup copy.

Overall: If you are interested in collaborating with others using documents, use this product!!

Pros: It allows an easy and efficient way to connect and collaborate with colleagues in satellite locations, utilizing familiarity we already possess so nothing new to learn---very easy to use, and easy to control who docs are shared with.

Cons: Very, very occasionally the links don't share correctly to outside users, and very, very occasionally does not accurately reflect current users/viewers--both occur rarely, there isn't much to complain about.

Overall: Collaborative efficiency among colleagues in separate locations, immediate usability with even the newest of users and functions and features are intuitive and familiar

Pros: I don't know if Google's any product really needs a review. This is excellent application which automatically keeps track of all changes done to document and maintains versioning. In the process, it also removes duplicity of documents and therefore removes confusions over accessing multiple copies of same file. It supports multiple formats and absolutely every type of document can be accessed via google docs. Access permission rights can be assigned and document can be secured from unauthorized edits.

Cons: Virtually none. I am a big fan of google products. Just offline editing is little painful. Feels short of options in comparison to desktop suites.

Overall: Just about everything. As a team, we can collaboratively work on documents, PPts etc.

Pros: I like how fast and easy it is for me to create a google doc, and share it with other teammates, which they can also collaborate on in real time. This helps speed up work for us.

Cons: I don't like how it only works with gmail users, since a lot of my team members do not use gmail. It should be easier to intergrate with other email addresses outside of gmail.

Overall: Best and easiest platform to create and share documents fast.

Pros: I dont have a valid version of Microsoft Word on my desktop so I use Google Docs just the same. All you need is a gmail account to log in with. You dont have to go to save as, put destination and do all that when your done working on document you just close app and it will be there automatically when you open it back up next time. Has a ton of different templates you could use for everything including resume formats.

Cons: A couple of things it does not have that Microsoft word has is more options to customize your data example: underline, bold print, highlight wording with different colors etc etc. You also cant resize or change the lettering font for your data

Overall: Google Docs is a free application that is substitutable for Microsoft Word if you do not have that on your desktop and it is free

Pros: Working with the documents with different users is very easy. Even if you are using at the same time. I use Sheets as a database for a couple apps that I have running, and even utilizing the app while I am updating is possible.

Cons: They have a frequently used files stacked on top of your actual files. So if you only have a few files, then it can seem like you have more files or duplicate files which can be confusing.

Pros: I love that I can edit and organize files, and have my coworker see those changes or notes reflected on his computer. It makes collaboration and sharing files easy. I also love that I can begin to write something on one computer, and then pick up where I left off on any other computer (or phone!) simply by logging in.

Cons: The limitations on storage space. We maxed out on the number of files and GB we could store for free on the drive, and then had to purchase additional storage. (That being said, though, there is a pretty good amount of storage initially available for free! So the gateway to entry is terrific.)

Pros: Google Docs' group collaboration feature was a game changer when it was first released. It allowed multiple users editing the same document simultaneously in real time - a feature that is so power that might be taken for granted today. It changed "team project" collaboration forever without the need for multiple versions flying back and forth via email or having to chunk sections that later needs to be merged.

One master file, auto saved in the cloud, with the ability to group collaborate, and absolutely FREE....once again, a game changer!

Cons: Google Docs will unfortunately always be considered as "Word lite" because it will never be able to catch up to the feature rich Microsoft Word. Having said that, it's a known fact that most users will only use a small percentage of features available in Microsoft Word and Google Docs have captured majority of those needed features. So as long as you're not a "power Word" user creating design rich documents, Google Docs will have no problem functioning as a basic Word Processor.

Having said that, for those needing the convenience and simplicity of a collaborative cloud based Word Processor, the feature limitations are often overlooked. Free is also a persuasive variable for small businesses.

In an enterprise environment where content security is crucial, then Word 365 has come a long way to finally match Google Docs once "game changer" features. Word 365 now share most of the convenience of Google Docs with the option to launch the full Word desktop version on demand.

Microsoft also wisely changed its pricing structure from the traditional "per copy" price to per user subscription allowing for more convenience and accessibility of the software. So as long as you're in an Enterprise environment already using Office Exchange Mail, then MS Word will naturally be your Word processor of choice.

For the rest of us consumers and private citizens, then Google Docs is still the best choice.

Pros: Simple and easy to use. I like how it automatically saves all changes made to documents, so I never lose anything. It is very easy to find documents and can access from any web browser or from my smart phone.

Cons: I wish there was an officially supported dark theme. Some users may need to relearn functions from Microsoft office.

Overall: Easy to share important documents between coworkers. The only limit to access is your connection to the internet, although there is a feature that allows you to access documents offline.

Pros: I find Google Docs to be much simpler and easier to use than Word. It has the menu items I need and doesn't distract me with the other stuff. Creating my documents online makes so much more sense because then I can use them across multiple computers and devices (gone are the days of emailing your self documents... yuck!). It's nice that everything auto-saves.

Cons: I don't like that when you first go to Docs, the default view isn't "Recent". For me, I almost always want to see the most recent documents I've opened.

I like google docs

Cons: what I like least about this software is that it sometimes hard to save the docs back to my computer.

It is a free too and it has lot of advantages.

Pros: This has replaced other tools I would use for docs and spreadsheets. It has everything I need and I don't have to worry about it closing out and losing the information I just typed.

Cons: It's lite on features, but that's also a strength as you don't get lost trying to figure out an obscure font you want to add.

Pros: As an IT professional I find that having certain documents at your fingertips is critical to doing your job successfully. Sometimes having these self created doc's is necessary from one career to another or across several different careers. Google doc's does this. I am able to achieve mobility and functionality even if my next post doesn't have Sharepoint or even Office on their systems. This also makes having documents, spreadsheets and presentations available on any OS. From Windows XP to Windows 10, Mac OSx to iOS (iPhone/iPad) to Linux. It's always there. Easy to use. Even easier to find.

Cons: It's not always as robust as Excel and some functionality is lost when transferring a MS Office doc to a Google Doc. Spreadsheets from Excel lose their abilities to use VB Macro's (which I do use on a regular basis) and most template formats (IE resume's from MS Word) tend to distort or just all out bork.

Overall: Ease of mobility from my desk to my mobile devices. Translation between my many different OS's Desktop being Windows 10, Android Tablet and iOS phone.

Pros: Shareable documents, up to date edits, user friendly, easy to navigate. I love being able to share a document - sign up sheet - etc. and get live feedback. This eliminates sending a word document then asking from feedback and having to make the corrections. This is a friendly and very effective way to share documentation. I love it.

Cons: I have no cons with this products. It's a great tool for any organization. This allows real time edits and documentation.
