In this world of growing technology, Google has become our dictionary. While this company has made life easy, it did not stop there. When everything was slowly shifting to the base of the internet, it also became one important mode of communication. That’s when emails caught rage and Google came up with its very own mailing system – Gmail. It also allowed us to attach files and folders to send across. But was it feasible and convenient enough? Were you allowed to attach files larger than 25 MB? Was it possible to always have a copy stored on your computer and keep sending edited files back and forth again and again?

Understanding these challenges, Google Drive was introduced – which allowed users to store files and folders using cloud storage. It also allowed you to share documents online, where all the people who have access to it can edit it and the changes are visible live – without having to share the document with multiple audiences again and again.

Why should you use Google Drive?
