Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Who can use Google Docs?, part of Google Docs Essential Training.
- Anyone can create a free Google account. Your free Google account gives you access to many Google products like Gmail, Google Calendar, YouTube and others, including Google Docs and Google Drive. In fact, here's a link to Google Docs. I'm gonna show you how to access this site later on. But the first time you access it, you'll be prompted to sign in or create an account if you don't already have one. Throughout this course we'll be building this document that you see here.
When you send a link to other people, and I'll show you how, those people don't have to have a Google account to view your document. However, if they do want to edit it and collaborate on it, which I'll be showing you how to do later, they will need a free Google account to work on this document with you. So for now, create a Google account if you don't already have one. It's completely free and it gives you access to many other Google products besides Google Docs, so it's highly worth your time.
Up next, let's sign in and create our first Google Doc.
