Google Docs is already one of the most popular online collaboration tools when it comes to document writing and editing. However, not many people use the collaborating tools of Google Docs when they are using them. To ensure that users do so and to show them the power of Google Docs’ collaboration tools, Google has now introduced a wicked cool demo.
In this demo, you are taken to a page where there is a sample Google document on the screen. You start writing and editing it and at the same time, a number of other ‘great writers’ are editing it too.
For instance, while I was checking it out, Nietzsche, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky and Charles Dickens were there, watching my writing and editing it in real-time. Of course that is merely an automated tool but then, the very impression that other great writers are editing your writing is a great feeling in itself, one that many would dream had come true.
It is probably a great way for Google to show how collaboration on Google Docs work and how a user can bring out the most of it. It is the coolest demo Google has shipped out in a while. Don’t forget to try your hands on it here.
