What is Google Drive....CONTINUED

Save Gmail Attachments

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.

Powerful Search

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

Google Photos

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.

Scan Documents

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.

See old versions

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. That's file versioning made easy.
