Google Drive Docs, Sheets and Slides Apps Now in the Chrome Web Store

The three main editors in Google Drive/Docs are getting names, Chrome apps

Google's push to rename Docs to Drive makes some sense, but not entirely. While having the cloud storage device named Docs is confusing, so is a web-based document editor named Drive.

So Google is adding a bit more clarity to its Drive/Docs products and is renaming the editors.

Technically, it's naming them as they never had an official name besides the document editor, the spreadsheet editor and the presentation editor.

The move is more than welcomed then. The entire product is called Google Drive, but the individual editors are now called Docs, Sheets and Slides.

To make it easier to access all the editors, there are now apps in the Chrome Web Store for all of them. The "apps" are just links that will open the web-based editors.

Chromebook users, who get Drive by default, along with a tempting 100 GB of free storage for two years, will see the Docs, Sheets and Slides apps by default.
