What is Google Drive?

How is it different from Google Docs?

Google Docs refers to the editors for Google documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms. These are online documents that live in the cloud and provide real-time collaboration features.

Google Drive is the place to access all your files, including both Google Docs and local files that you sync to the cloud. If you used Google Docs prior to April 2012 Google Drive replaces and enhances what you've previously known as the Google Documents List.

Google Drive is a single place to manage all your files, including Google Docs. Think of Google Drive as your hard drive in the cloud. With Google Drive, you can access files, folders, and Google Docs from the web. No matter what happens to your devices, your files are safely stored in Google Drive.

Each user gets 5 GB of free storage, and additional storage can be purchased. Google Docs do not count toward storage quotas.
