Google Drive is a cloud-based file storage and synchronization service. Users can upload and share files of most types with each other, as well as collaborate in the development of documents ("docs"), presentations("slides"), drawings, and spreadsheets ("sheets). Google Drive also has live forms; submitted responses are saved in a Google sheet.
