Get the most out of Google Drive

Your stuff, your way

 

Your storage works with Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos, so you can keep files, save email attachments and back-up photos directly to Drive. You can also purchase a storage plan for even more space.

Photos, videos, presentations, PDFs – even Microsoft Office files. No matter what type of file it is, everything can be stored safely in Drive.

Files in Drive are for your eyes only, until you decide to share them. You can quickly invite others to view, comment, and edit any file or folder you choose.

Every file in Drive stays safe no matter what happens to your smartphone, tablet or computer. Drive is encrypted using SSL, the same security protocol used on Gmail and other Google services.

Built to work with Google

 

Hover over an attachment in Gmail and look for the Drive logo. Here, you can save any attachment to your Drive to organize and share them in a single, safe place.

Drive can recognize objects in your images and text in scanned documents. So you can search a word like “Eiffel Tower” and get text documents with that word, as well as images of the actual Eiffel Tower.

Store your photos in Drive and see them come to life with Google+ Photos. Get that expertly edited look without the effort, plus animations, movies, and more..

Google Drive is built-in to Chromebooks, so your files and photos are automatically backed up. You'll get 100GB of free storage for two years with most new Chromebooks.

Work smarter with apps

 

Create and collaborate with others. Share documents, build out spreadsheets and make a presentation on the fly with our Docs, Sheets and Slides apps.

Quickoffice lets you open and edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets and presentations on your phone or tablet.

Google Forms lets you run a survey or quickly create a team roster with a simple online form. Then check out the results, neatly organized in a spreadsheet.

Edit your profile photo, do some landscaping, create a mind map and more. Over 100 Drive apps can help you do more with your stuff. Try them by installing one from the Drive collection in the Chrome Web Store.

Take Drive even further

 

Scan all your paper documents with Drive for Android. Just snap a photo of documents like receipts, letters and statements – and Drive will store them instantly as PDFs.

Make files available offline so you can view them when your phone or tablet loses service, like on a plane or in a building with a bad connection.

You can look back as far as 30 days on most file types, making it easy to see who has made changes and go back to previous versions.
