Google is scheduled to officially launch Google Docs & Spreadsheets later today at the Office 2.0 Conference in San Francisco.

Docs is a Web-based word-processing and spreadsheet that Google said is designed to make it easier for people to create, manage, and share documents and spreadsheets online.

Google Spreadsheets had been in beta testing since June. Back then, product manager Jonathan Rochelle told the product?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s “biggest wow feature” is the ability for multiple users to simultaneously edit spreadsheets and chat.

Rochelle said in time Google would add features to the product beyond its spreadsheet capabilities.
