In this short post, I will show you where to find, and how to use the word count function in Google Docs.
This is particularly useful when you need to know how many words you have written for an essay or blog post for example.
I am a fan of Google Docs as there are some useful tools available to use for free. One of those is the word count feature.

Navigate to Tools then to Word count (second option down), see below:

Make sure to check the bottom tick box. The word count is then displayed at the bottom of your document as you type.

So, there you go.
Hopefully, this short article will help youto see the word count on Google Docs.
All the best.
