Google is killing its Drive desktop app

Google said in a blog post that it will end support for its Drive cloud storage app on Mac and PC from 11 December 2017.

The service will be replaced by a unified cloud storage client called Backup and Sync, which includes all the features in Google Drive.

Google Photos will also lose support on 11 December and its features will be integrated into Backup and Sync.

Enterprise and G-Suite customers will gain access to Google’s new Drive File Stream platform, which allows users to stream files on demand, sync individual files, and access files in Team Drives.

The Google Drive service will shut down completely on 12 March 2018. Google will begin pushing notifications about the discontinuation to users from October.

    I’m really starting to dislike Google. First thing I do when I receive a new phone is to disable 90% of the Google pre-installed apps. Drive was one of the 10% I did use.
