Living with Google: Google Drive

Google-Drive

As many of you likely know, Google Drive is your cloud storage for all your documents on you Android, PC, or Mac. Google has created a very easy setup for this application simple download and sign in. When you are in drive you can load documents and store them in the cloud allowing you to access them whenever and wherever you want. Most document are supported and it even stores pictures and videos. With Drive you can allow access to other users to view the document great for business and social use.

Drive gives you 15 GB of storage space for free and offers more for a monthly charge from 100GB for $1.99/month to 30TB for $299.99/month. In the ever expanding world of larger pictures and documents 15 GB is great for average user the larger is more for enterprise users. With drive you can view documents on any mobile device or on the webpage itself. Drive allows you to pin your selected documents on the device you are using. Another feature is through drive you can access Google Docs to edit you documents.

I personally use drive on a weekly basis to access my documents from computer at home to computer at work. It is very useful and more efficient for me to store my documents on drive than a standard email. Many companies are starting to use Drive for sharing documents such as agreements and company news. As with many Google services this app is connected with your Google account and shares documents with corresponding apps such as Docs.

LIVING WITH GOOGLE is an ongoing series of articles dedicated to highlighting the many ways in which Google can help better our lives. With innumerable apps and services to choose from, our aim is to educate readers on the ways in which we use them.
