    "I find G Suite good for my small business. I use this to edit and store my business files and share these with my team. I wish they have desktop apps where I can easily access. Also I can't edit offline on other browsers. Hoping they update this feature."

    "When I was told I needed to homeschool twenty children remotely for my new job- who's ever heard of a remote homeschooling co-op, seriously- I was near despair.

    "This used to be fast but Google+ on my Android 8.1 is soooo slow! I've tested this on 4 different WiFi networks but it still won't load fast. Now it takes ages to refresh communities. Revert to the old update, I'll give this 5."
