Google Drive

Overview

You can store your files in the cloud with Google Drive. You can also install the desktop and mobile application to access your files from your computer or Android or iOS mobile device. Google Drive's built-in sync capability ensures that your files, folders, and Google Docs are the same on all your devices.

You can use Google Drive File Stream to stream My Drive and Team Drive files directly from the cloud. This desktop application allows you to open and edit most document types directly out of Drive File Stream without having to download the file onto your computer. When you make edits to the file, the changes are automatically saved in My Drive.

Note: With the launch of Drive File Stream in September 2017, Google will begin the process of deprecating the Google Drive for Mac/PC sync tool. Support for the tool ends on December 11, 2017 and the application will no longer be available starting March 12, 2018. As an alternative to Google Drive for Mac/PC, you can use the Backup and Sync tool from Google.

Google Docs editors are built in to Google Drive. The Google Docs collaboration suite includes Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Drawings.
