Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video What is Google Drive?, part of Migrating from Office 2010 to Google Apps.
- Google Drive is a free product from Google…that's actually two products in one.…The first product is Google Drive.…It's your own hard drive that follows you…everywhere you have internet access.…You can access your files via any web browser…by going to drive.google.com.…You can access your files from your desktop…or laptop computer and even your mobile phone or tablet.…You can store music, videos, photos,…documents, ZIP files, and more.…

Finally, Google Drawings allows you to create…flow charts and other images that you can use anywhere,…
