Make the most out of Google Drive

I’ve used a lot of cloud services like Drive, Dropbox and Onedrive and I understand why Google Drive gets the lion’s share of users. It’s linked with my Gmail account, works smoothly on all of my devices and it’s not just about uploading my files online. There’s so much more that I can do with Drive.

What is Google Drive?

Google Drive is a file storage cloud service provided by Google for synchronizing, sharing and editing your files. It was released on April 24, 2012. Google provides 15 GB of free storage for your files, mails and photos but you can of course, upgrade for more storage. Drive can be very useful for people who want to work on the go. Not surprisingly, there’s no compulsion to stick to one device – it’s a cloud based storage service after all. Advertisement-related criticism aside, Google does pay significant attention on keeping your files secure and private.

Let’s talk about the things you can do with Drive…

Please don’t mind all the pictures of my notes, I have my sem exams next week.

Google Drive may have arrived late but its impact has been solid, and evident. You can even move your entire hard drive to Google Drive for easy online access. With Drive, sending heavy file attachments is far more convenient – significantly making it easier for us to share files.

The service allows simultaneous collaboration on documents using chat on the IM app ‘Hangouts’. Google drive supports editing up to 30 different file types from your browser. If you need more storage, check out the storage plans here. Start getting the most out of your Google Drive today.
