creating documents in google docs

Google Docs is one of the easiest ways to create and edit documents and collaborate with your peers online from your computer, iPhone, iPad, Android phones or tablets. You can create documents from scratch or upload an existing document created in other word processing applications like Microsoft Office, Open Office, etc. Google Docs also comes with a wide collection of templates to help you create documents easily.

With the introduction of Google Drive, Google merged Google Docs into Drive. Google Drive is a cloud storage space like iCloud and Dropbox, but with capabilities to create, edit and collaborate documents, presentations, spreadsheets, etc. in addition to storing and sharing any types of digital files and folders.

In this article, I am going to show you how to create a document in Google Docs, change fonts and add additional fonts to your font list in Google Docs.

Note: I may use the words 'Google Docs' and 'Google Drive' interchangeably as the former is a subset of the latter.
