How to track changes in Google Docs

Google docs had introduced the new feature of tracking its changes in 2014. You can track changes while collaborating or editing the work of others. By allowing people to track changes, Google docs have given more power to people. The feature is helpful in two ways. Firstly, it helps you to edit your work without editing or modifying.

Secondly, if you create a document, you can send it to others. If they suggest necessary changes to be made, you can see, accept or reject the suggestions accordingly. Through this tracking feature, the whole process of collaborating has become more transparent and easier.
