Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized.
Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect, and grade assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized.
Students can keep track of what’s due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom.
With the mobile app for iOS, students and teachers can view their classes and communicate with their classmates in real time. Students can open their assignments and work on them right from their iPhone or iPad. Teachers can keep track of who has turned in work and grade the assignment - at school or on the go. Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date.
There are many benefits of using Classroom:
Easy to set up
Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up.
The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place.
Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials (e.g., documents, photos, and videos) are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive.
Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Students can share resources with each other or provide answers to questions on the stream.
Like the rest of Google Workspace for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes.

Good but annoying
Hello everyone so I just think that Google classroom to be so annoying at times and I am it’s just pretty frustrating and it never works the way you wanted to like it never does work as fast as you want to like for instance let’s say that you want to do an assignment and you have to wait like 30 minutes because it has problems assignment assigning him work so it is pretty annoying to have to wait that long to assign the work that doesn’t really take that long for other apps so it is pretty annoying to have to do all that make all that stress. It is so annoying if you don’t know how it works like your first time person using Google classroom and it is pretty frustrating if you don’t know how it works like a couple years ago I didn’t know how it worked so it’s very frustrating to learn the hard way to use it and I’m not trying to make Google classroom feel bad but if they are reading this and listening to it I’m going to give it a two star out of five because I think it’s not the worst app but it’s not the best app either so it’s just I have to use it because it’s a good resource to do your work but it’s it’s very glitchy and doesn’t always work right so I’m gonna give it a two star or five because I think they can put a little more tweaks on there so it could be a bit better than it is right now so thank you for for listening to my review and I will give this a two star out of five.
Great app, stop giving 1 stars
In all my time using Google Classroom (GC), I have never once encountered any problems with the app. In contrast to what many other kids seem to be saying, this app is easy to navigate and more or less completely unproblematic. There are basically no bugs or glitches and it makes doing/turning in work simple and easy. I still don't understand why people are giving this app 1-star reviews. If they don't like the amount of work they're getting through google classroom, don't complain about it on the app store. If they succeed in their goal of getting GC removed from the app store, all that will do is allow their teacher to search for another, possibly more annoying medium to assign work. GC has absolutely nothing to do the amount of work that they have, it's their teachers. It's kind of like that idiom of "shooting the messenger". GC is nothing more than an easy way for teachers to give you work. GC isn't the one that's making you cry over homework, that would be your teachers. So stop having freezing point IQ, and stop giving this perfectly good app 1-star reviews. If you still think giving this app a bad review is a viable way to reduce the amount of work you have, please do everyone a favor and remove yourself from society, as well as the internet. Turn into a shut-in or something.
TL;DR: google classroom isn't the reason why you have homework, your teachers are. stop blaming google classroom and don't give it completely false bad reviews
Good app, could be improved
I’ve been using Google Classroom since 4th grade, and I don’t see any major problems with it. Frankly, the app’s reviews are only so bad because a bunch of students are sulking about having to use it for school. I receive notifications on my iPad when new assignments are posted, and that’s super helpful especially during distance learning so I know what I have to do. Despite many reviews saying that the app crashes or doesn’t load, it works just fine for me on my iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Google Classroom is a useful app for both teachers and students for posting and organizing assignments. However, I do wish that there you could upload several files at once. Now, I have to upload one at a time and, depending on the size of the file, it can take a bit long (15 seconds). Also, my Google Classrooms aren’t always the most organized (not the app’s fault), so it would be great if there was a search bar. If I needed to find an assignment, I could search up its name and it would show up. Finally, right now I can’t find a way to edit my comments. This isn’t a big error, it’s just annoying. If I want to change something small I have to delete it and write it all over again. All in all, the many horrible reviews are unjustified in my opinion. Google Classroom is a very good app and doesn’t deserve all the 1-stars it’s getting.
