What is a .GSHEET file?

The .gsheet file extension is associated with Google Drive, the cloud-based file storage and collaboration platform provided by Google. It is used to store spreadsheet data created using Google Sheets, which is a web-based spreadsheet application offered as part of the Google Drive suite. The .gsheet format allows users to create, edit, and share spreadsheet documents online.

Understanding the .gsheet Format

The .gsheet format is a proprietary file format developed by Google specifically for Google Sheets. It represents a structured collection of cells organized into rows and columns, similar to traditional spreadsheet files. The format supports various data types, formulas, functions, formatting options, and collaborative features.

Google Sheets provides a wide range of tools and features for data analysis, visualization, and collaboration. The .gsheet format ensures compatibility and consistency across different devices and platforms when working with spreadsheet documents in Google Drive.

How to Use .gsheet Files?
