Google Cloud and its Application

Learn Google Cloud storing & sharing of photos and documents together with other useful Google Apps

Google has an equivalent sets of Apps (Google Document, Google Sheets & Google Slides) that work quite similar to Microsoft Office (Words, Excel & PowerPoint) and is free for personal use. Google and Microsoft files are not compatible, however you can convert Google files, for viewing only, in the Micorsoft format.

You may have a set of photos taken on your smartphone you wish to share with your friend but the attachment files is so large and is not possible to be sent by standard email account.
