Google Drive lets you access your stuff on every computer and mobile device. Using Google Drive is a great way to store your files safely in secure data centers, where your files won’t go missing. Even if your computer, phone or tablet break, the files you store in Google Drive are safe. Upload photos, videos, documents, and other files that are important to you to Google Drive. Get going with up to 15GB of storage. Free. Google Drive helps you get to your files faster by recognizing objects in your images and text in scanned documents. View over 30 file types right in your browser – including HD video, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop – even if you don’t have the program installed on your computer. If you use Chrome, you can turn on Drive offline to create, edit, and comment on Docs, Slides, and Drawings and view Sheets when there’s no network connection.
Features of Google Drive
• Easily get your stuff in Drive. Drag one or hundreds of files into the Drive folder on your computer and they’ll always be available at drive.google.com, on the mobile app, and wherever you install Drive.
• Access what you need, wherever you go. Get apps for Android and iOS on your mobile phone and tablet, then get to everything you keep in Drive from wherever you are.
• Create something. Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides are built in to Drive. Whip up a grocery list, plan an event in a spreadsheet, or put together a presentation for your history class on your own or with others.
• Safe, secure, shareable. No matter what happens to your devices, your files are safely stored in Google Drive. And everything you upload to or create in Drive belongs to you and is automatically set to private, unless you decide to share.
Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides automatically save and track every change you make, forever. You can also look back as far as 30 days on other file types, making it easy to see who has made changes and restore previous versions.
