Google Sketch is a 3D modelling application. SketchUp is usually used to create 3D realisations of houses and other buildings, though it can be used for other purposes, such as creating 3D charts or diagrams. Visio is a Microsoft product that can be used to create diagrams, so you might want to be able to import these files to SketchUp for use there. However, you cannot directly import Visio files into SketchUp. There is a way around this.
