    Considering Google themselves call Google Docs as Google Drive now, the synonym is corect – Sathyajith Bhat Oct 5 '13 at 3:28
  • I must admit that this is a bit confusing. Better is to determine what exactly is meant (Google Drive or Google Documents) and edit the question accordingly. -1 for the synonym request and +1 for posting here! – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Oct 5 '13 at 7:15

Google Docs is what Google calls their online office suite.

Google Documents is what Google calls their online word processor, which is a part of the online document suite.

Considering Google has rebranded Google Docs to Google Drive, the synonym for Google Docs to Google Drive is the correct one. Refer this previous meta post:

  • OK, I got. So Google Docs is not an abbreviation of Google Document! I thought so. Thank you for clarification :) – Mohammad Naji Oct 7 '13 at 19:04
  • @MohammadNaji you're welcome! – Sathyajith Bhat Oct 7 '13 at 19:19

I was wrong. I thought that Google Docs is abbreviation of Google Document which was wrong.

As the wikipedia states:

Documents, spreadsheets, presentations can be created with Google Docs, imported through the web interface, or sent via email.
