Imagine you have a normal spreadsheet in Google Drive that you and a few friends are working on together.
How does everybody’s copy of the spreadsheet stay up-to-date?

Each change is sent to Google and Google sends each change to everybody.
When you make a change to a spreadsheet that is on Google Drive, that change is sent from your computer to Google, and then from Google to all of the other people who are working on that spreadsheet.
