A Quick Look at Google Workspace

A Quick Look at Google Workspace

There are a ton of productivity suites out there, and we’ve all heard of the most common one, Microsoft Office. Still, there are other solutions out there, one of which is Google Workspace. What does Google Workspace offer, and what differentiates it from its competition? Let’s take a closer look and see if we can find the answer to this question.

One thing we should mention quickly is that Google Drive and/or Google Workspace have a distinct advantage in that you get, more or less, the same experience but slimmed down for use on any compatible device. Furthermore, you get collaboration by default and anytime-anywhere access thanks to the cloud-based nature of these applications.

Google Docs

If you look at Docs and try to compare it to Word, you might find that Docs has relatively simple functionality in comparison. There’s no question that Microsoft Word has a distinct advantage over Google Docs in that it has far more technical features, but there is something to be said for simplicity. If you take a look at the user interface for both Word and Docs, one is far more user-friendly. That said, if you are used to Word and have been using it for a while, then perhaps you would prefer that.

Google Sheets

Similar to Docs, Sheets is Google’s answer to Microsoft Excel. It has much of the same functionality, so you can expect a similar experience; just be aware that Google Sheets can be seen as, again, more minimalist and simplistic compared to Excel, which can be overwhelming at times for an inexperienced user.

Google Slides

Google Slides is the slideshow presentation software found within Google Workspace, and it is an effective tool in its own right. It might not have as dynamic a range of features as PowerPoint, but it is simple and effective for its desired purpose.

Google Forms

The ability to create and administer surveys is one of the most interesting features available in Google Workspace. Not only can surveys be created, but you can also create online forms (and even quizzes) to collect information from users.

Other Notable Google Applications

The other major Google applications that are found within Google Workspace include Google Drawings (diagram creation software), Google My Maps (map and location tracking software), Google Sites (a wiki and web-page creation tool), Google Apps Script (scripting platform to create add-ons for Google Apps), and Google Jamboard (an interactive whiteboard interface).
