Included in WPS Office, WPS docs (or WPS Writer) is able to realize all the basic operations on word documents as the best alternative to Microsoft Word.

In addition, the Co-Editing function built in WPS Writer allows multiple users to edit the current document concurrently via switching the docuement as an online Cloud document.


Furthermore, WPS Office supports real-time team collaboration in order that the users can create a WPS team and share file with others directly without extra file transferring. What's more, in WPS team, history versions are retained for all lest the documents are lost, and the team members can initiate collaborative editing. Collaborative working is unprecedentedly easy to handle.

Ø Google docs

Similar to other apps in the Google Drive suite, Google Docs serves as a collaborative tool for cooperative editing of documents in real time. With Google docs, the documents are shared, and edited by multiple servers at the same time, and the revision history is saved so the changes can be tracked. Then, the files can be exported to the local computer in many formats as ODF, HTML, PDF, Office Open XML, etc.

There are also some file limits to the insertable file sizes and overall document length. For example, 1.02 million characters at most are allowed; and the images inserted can be up to 50 MB.
