Updates: Google Drive

Google Drive gives you the ability to collaborate with colleagues in real-time anywhere with an internet connection.


Introducing Google Drive File Stream

Google is pleased to announce Drive File Stream, a new application for your Mac or PC. Use Drive File Stream to access all your Google Drive files from your computer while using less disk space and decreasing sync time. (Please be advised that Google will shutdown the older version of Drive for Mac and PC clients on Saturday, May 12, 2018.)

How does it work?

With Drive File Stream, you can:

  • Quickly see all your Google Drive files in Finder/Explorer (including Team Drives).
  • Browse and organize Google Drive files without downloading all of them to your computer.
  • Choose which files or folders you'd like to make available offline.
  • Open files in common apps like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop.
How do I get started?

Visit the Drive Help Center to install Drive File Stream and get started.

Thank you.

What Can You Do with Team Drives?

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device.

Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
