Third Party Apps in Google Drive Topics

Third party applications in Google Drive allows users to compose more complex document types than the normal Google Drive formats permitted. Google has allowed third party companies to integrate their products into Google Drive to allow for nearly limitless expansion of Google’s cloud-based word processing suite.

Some of the different apps currently available in Google Drive include Gantt chart applications, CAD programs, bar code and QR code generators, creative audio applications and many more.

Allowing third party applications in Google Drive has given the cloud community a unified place to develop and improve upon the cloud-based systems already in place. Expect to see the number of apps available in Google Drive to increase rapidly in coming months!

The video tutorial below will show you everything you need to know about using third party apps in Google Drive!

I do not work for Google, nor was I compensated for the production of this video series. I am simply a Google Docs user (both personally and professionally) that would like to share my knowledge and insight with others to help provide a more seamless transition to Google Drive.
