What is Google Drive?

We will forever be thankful to Google for making our lives easier, they introduced Google Drive (www.google.com/drive) on 24th April 2012. It is basically a cloud storage space where you can store any kind of data such as pictures, audio files, video clips, documents, etc.

You can organize and back up your data on a network portal while sharing it with other users with no risks of security. People use cloud services by using google drive account login or google drive mobile sign in and they pay for it on a monthly basis.

Benefits of Google Drive

  • If you tend to use Gmail, and you have an attachment of 25 MBs or above, Gmail always automatically creates a google drive link for it rather than making it an attachment, which makes it easier to send and receive large files without any hassle.
  • Any essential document or at media file can be backed up to drive and can stay safe there for hundreds of years. That makes it safer than a mobile or pen drives which has a chance of getting exploited any time.
  • An excellent search engine gives it an edge. You can search for any keyword and drive can go through data from people who have kept the public and could come to your use.
