Google Apps are used for email, calendars, and document storage, sharing, and creation. You can create, manage, and share your documents with either Google My Drive or Google Shared Drive. You can also store MS Office files, images, and video on the Google Drives.
Google Apps are cloud based and available anywhere on the Internet, 24/7. You can access email, calendars, and documents, with your mobile devices, such as your tablet or smartphone. Please remember at all times to keep your data secure, especially if working in public places.

Google often launches new features without making big announcements. They also sometimes announce changes which only appear several months down the line. In some cases features are made available but restricted by the Google administrator at Brookes. This is why you may notice sudden changes or differences with private Gmail accounts or those of friends outside of the University.
