Drive for Desktop, a unified solution

Enough to facilitate the management of our digital life and assure the web giant its place as a leader, at a time when Amazon is trying to establish itself in the file streaming niche.
Multi-account management, finally

There will be no more options between the main account or the professional account, everything can be archived in the same place. At the moment, this new version of Google Drive for desktop Also known as number 22.214.171.124 has yet to be fully implemented, but the service should be fully effective by the end of the year, Google says in a statement.
