How Google Apps Work

How Google Apps Work


>>LEUNG: I’m Vivian Leung and I work at Google.
Today, we’re here to talk about Google Apps, which, if you’re not familiar with it, is
our online suite of communication and collaboration tools. I think here at Google, we’ve been
looking at ways people work with each other, communicate with each other. And we’ve found
that most of the time, we’re pretty attached to our own computers or hard drives. And being
an Internet company, we figured there must be a better way. And one of these ways is
what we call Cloud Computing. I know it sounds–it sounds a little bit geeky, but it’s really
not that complicated. Basically, all of your files and all of your information, even all
of these programs that you use are all stored, you know, online or in the cloud, as we call
it. That means you’re not attached to any single computer or hard drive. All you have
to do is be connected to the Internet and you can access these programs and files from
anywhere in the world. Let’s use an example. So, I’m in New York and my coworker is in
San Francisco and we need to work on a presentation together. In the old way, we would’ve created
a presentation, emailed as an attachment and sent it back and forth, back and forth, until
we were done. But with Google Docs for example, I can create a presentation online, share
it with my colleague, and we can actually both edit it and make changes at the same
time. And we’re working on the same actual doc, so there’s no version control and there’s
no attachments. There’s only one copy of any file that you work on. That means you can
be accessing your information and working with other people from any computer. In fact,
you can actually connect to it from any devices connected to the Internet, so, smartphones,
netbooks, laptops, you name it. And there’s nothing to download or install, you just get
online and off you go. I hope this video has been helpful, if you have any ideas on how
we can make Apps better, please let us know at this link. Thanks and happy Cloud Computing.

    Google has brought a Revolutionary change in cloud computing and open source application. They have assured the sustainability along with a user friendly UI. eGovernance by Google should be the next step.

    maybe add some future for waiting list video to download later an automatically start download on some place (lol just downloat at free wifi,)

    According to the Google Drive policy, any file you upload to your cloud belongs to Google and by using their service, you are giving Google the permission to delete, edit, copy or use your files in any way they want. You can open up the privacy policy and it's written there. In addition, your gmail attachments, inbox and sent emails along with automatically backed up phone data is all stored on Google Drive. Kind of makes me uncomfortable using google products when they have this in their policy.

    If you want to use Android, Google "owns" Android operating system. I am making money with Google Opinion Rewards app. Thanks Google. Google Photos are FOREVER. JUST LIKE YOUTUBE.. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY 2018!
