Google Drive is another product developed by Google that serves as file storage and synchronization service. This app would allow users to store documents or files in the cloud, share files, and synchronize files across several devices.
This is an advantageous storage option for people looking for online storage capable of being accessed offline. This would be available for Mac OS and Windows computers, as well as iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
Google Drive includes Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Office Suite. Such features would allow users to edit documents, presentations, spreadsheets, forms, and drawings, among others. Thus, files that you would create and save via the Office Suite would then be saved in Google Drive.
Users are given 15GB of free storage, but there are paid options as well. Such would include 100GB, 1 Terabyte, 2 Terabytes, 10TB, 20TB, and 30TB. Storage subscription fees can be made monthly or yearly with corresponding discounts. At the end of each subscription period, purchases on storage are renewed automatically.
Nevertheless, users are given the chance to upgrade their storage plan anytime, with the new storage tier to take effect right after the subscription. In the event of failure to take auto renewal, users are given a 7-day grace period in order to update their payment information.
Upon the expiration or cancellation of the storage subscription, the limit will be set back to 15GB when the subscription period ends. Although users are able to access their content by this time, they are unable to add anything in excess of the storage limit.
Google Drive is popularly used for education, work, and as team drive. In Google Drive for work, users are able to upload files as much as 5TB in size. For educational purposes, it is available for free with unlimited storage and support for user files up to 5TB with full encryption. Team drives also provide team access to all files and information rather than just a single person.
