Did you know that Google turned 20 this year? For most of us, it’s hard to imagine life without the Google.com search engine, Gmail, Google Drive, and any number of the other apps, services, and products that Google has developed.
Next to the search engine (well, and probably YouTube), Gmail – Google’s email product — is probably the most familiar of the Google tools. Launched on April Fools Day in 2004. It was appealing then — and still is — because it was free, came with a huge amount of storage, and dealt with spam well. Many people still don’t know that Gmail has many hidden settings (such as the ability to use multiple accounts) or that it can be used with your church domain. Google Drive and Google Docs are probably the next most popular products among churches. Drive is a collaborative cloud-based storage system that works in tandem with Docs, an alternative to much of the Microsoft Office Suite that also is highly collaborative in nature.
Churches that are ready to take advantage of all of these tools and many others would definitely be advised to consider G Suite for Nonprofits…
