Google Now Brings Drive For Desktop To Sync Files Across Devices

Google has brought in a new set of features. Google has now introduced Drive for desktop (Windows, macOS). This includes a unified tool that allows the users to synchronize their content through all their devices and the cloud easily. Google has announced that in the upcoming weeks, Backup and Sync users will find prompts that will ask them to transition to Drive for desktop. Google also said they recommended the transition by September 2021.

After September, the users will get an in-product notification that will tell them about the transition to continue syncing their files. The Drive for desktop initiative will turn out to be extremely useful. The users will easily be able to access files directly from the cloud on their desktops. This will help free up disk space and also save the user’s network bandwidth.

On Monday, the company released a statement wherein they said, “Because Drive files are stored in the cloud, any changes you or your collaborators make are automatically updated everywhere, and you’ll always have access to the latest version.”

Drive for desktop is an application that will be working on Windows and macOS. Through this, the users will be able to easily access files and folders directly from their desktops.

A lot of people use Google Drive directly either from web browsers on from the mobile app. However, few people prefer having access to their documents directly on their desktop, the way they do it for files stored locally on the device.

The company further said, “Drive for desktop automatically syncs local files to the cloud in the background, which minimizes the time you need to spend waiting for files to sync.”
