Google Drive helps users store company data in one place. Users can access files from desktop and mobile devices and control how team members share these files. The platform provides a central admin panel, data-loss prevention and a vault for the drive to ensure compliance and file sharing between users.

Google Drive stores teams’ work in a shared workspace. Teams own new files added to the drive, so that all members stay updated with the latest files. It includes machine-learning technology to help users predict future needs. Google Drive provides features like a natural-language search and optical character recognition (OCR).

Google Drive integrates with third-party applications including DocuSign for e-signatures, CloudLock for additional security layers and LucidCharts for mockups. Users can open different file types like PDFs and MPEG4s, and they can work on Microsoft Word files straight from the drive. Pricing is per month. Support is provided via online chat, email and the phone.

Convenience at Your Fingertips

As I said before, it's great for being able to view all of our shared work-related documents that are constantly changing in real time. I don't have to be at my computer to pull up whatever I need...it's there for me no matter where I am! It has really positively changed the way we operate as a staff!

Pros

I like that I can view any shared Google Docs on my phone no matter where i am using Google Drive. This is especially convenient for viewing an up to date version of our work schedule which is constantly changing. I am also able to view and edit other shared docs easily no matter where I am with this handy software!

Cons

It takes up a lot of space on my devices, but that's really to be expected. That is the only negative I've experienced thus far while using this software.

Great free product

Pros

Universal. Everything has plugins for it so that you can link to your drive. It's easy to collaborate with other people on documents.

Cons

It's missing some features, but it's a free product and beggars shouldn't be choosers.

Shared data? No problem.

Pros

Google Drive is widely used by me, at least weekly. Why? This product allows you to share your data with others. You can write a novel, a quote, an article, comment on this, review it and do it with others at the same time. Next, you open the Excel and count the income you make after you sell the book. You make it private or public, depends on the needs. Are you worried about the data loss or data leaks? You shouldn't. It's safe.

Cons

You are not able to register multiple accounts (not more than 3) to your phone number. This limitation forces you, as the user, to seek for a workaround if you have to use a few accounts for different purposes.

Excellent for files storage and sharing!

Google drive helped me storing files without any cost. Its free up to 15GB where I can save or share my files easily. I can access my documents whenever I want.

Pros

Google drive is a service offered by Google. It provides a server where you can save your files. You can save all your files such as Docs, PDFs, videos, photos etc. In google drive, you can also create or edit Google docs and share it with anyone. There are many benefits of using google drive one of them is can access google drive anywhere in the world just you need an internet connection and log into your account. It is a better option compared to other cloud applications because it can be accessed by other Google applications. Google drive comes with 15 GB which is free of charge and if you want to upgrade your plan you can upgrade it to premium plans.

Cons

Google drive is a powerful tool it has many advantages but I think there might be some disadvantages as well. If there is no internet connection there is no Google Drive because it is dependent on the internet connection. Another problem is uploading and downloading speed of google drive since millions of people are using Google Drive it may cause interruption while you are uploading and downloading your files.

GOOGLE DRIVE

So far, the best experience I have with the software is that, I could continue on my project and the accessibility of the software.

Pros

What I like the most about Google drive is that it is more of a web-based. You can use it on any device, such as Mac, PC, Ipad, or even a Chrome book. Which means you can continue working on a project an anyone else laptop.

Cons

the least I like about this software, is the vague sense in which there is so much to it. Some people can dismissed it.

Google drive review

Google drive is reliable and easy to use. I will continue using this software in my future business and for personal use.

Pros

Google Drive has has been a life safer. It allows me to share files and also store them in their servers. Since I started using google drive I have never lost documents or pictures. I'm the one who actually forget that they exist. It is easy to create new files, documents and folders. It allows me to retrieve my personal documents from anywhere in the world. The mobile website is convenient as it is as fast as the one on computers.
It is pocket friendly.

Cons

It does not have the search option. If you have a large number of pictures you will have to scroll down for you to get what you want.If you keep sharing a certain file, lets say from windows to Mac and back, It will eventually fail to open.

I can't live without it

Pros

- Share files and folders effortlessly to my friends and colleagues
- Backup for my computer
- Incredible amount of free space - 15GB!

Cons

- Lack of version control. It'd be better if Google Drive had it, but anyway it's a good product overall.
- The "share with me" section will get messy very soon when someone accidentally shared a subfolder to me whose upper-level folder I already had permission to use. There should be some option to organize it more efficiently.

Google Drive is great, but needs the best parts of Dropbox

Pros

Google Drive is clearly the best platform for free cloud storage and sharing. It is great to have Drive connected to email and is easy to use

Cons

The fact that you cannot easily have a Drive folder on your desktop like Dropbox. So when I try to edit my files I either have to do it in the browser (very inconvenient, particularly for excel documents) or I have to download and replace.

Can't beat it

Pros

What I like/LOVE about Google Drive is that it allows our team to share all kinds of files with each other seamlessly.

Cons

What I do not like so much about Drive is that you must be signed into your Google account in order to use it - exposing it to others.
