Google has released the Google Docs & Spreadsheets program in beta to help group users more easily collaborate on documents and ease document management.

Google Docs & Spreadsheets is a web-based word-processing and spreadsheet product that makes it easier for people to create, manage and share documents and spreadsheets on-line.

Google Docs & Spreadsheets integrates the open-source Writely word processing package with the Google Spreadsheets program into a single package.

Using the new package, Google says users will be able to create documents and spreadsheets and then manage and access them in a single, secure location.

They will also be able to collaborate easily with others, on-line and in real time; export to and import from a wide variety of file formats; share documents with others as view-only; or publish them to a blog or as an HTML page.

Google Docs & Spreadsheets is free and now available to new users at

Users need a Google account to use the software fully.
