It integrates with all the other G Suite products, of course, but that sometimes means that it gets way too cluttered to be functional whilst trying to find a document quickly.

Google Drive is simple to use. Uploading files from a computer or a mobile device can be done in a variety of intuitive ways. Downloading is just as easy and Google Drive allows you the option of previewing most files before you download them. Managing one's files is simple and similar to their email and photo platform. The only thing that proves some difficulty is managing shared files.

By now I haven't met too many flaws on this pack of services. The interface is easy to manage, the search tool quickly queries, the storage pretty much accepts any data format and keeps it stored.

Easy to use and set up. Once you have your Gmail account set up, you are set to go.

Overall, as I already mentioned, very pleasant and functional. One of the improvements, if not the best in that respect.

This software is very much useful in office work. It has all the features which increase users' productivity. Document collaboration, data storage, and data sharing are the few features which are most important. And users don't need to install any software to use it, they can easily use it from the web browser. It also facilitates users to edit their files from the software itself. Users do not need to download the file to edit it.

It's easy enough to use for computer users of all ages and skill levels. I am an advanced user, and I think the hardest part might be showing someone how to download and set up the app on their device if they weren't too familiar with computers, but overall it is very easy to understand.

I've been using Google Drive for years. I've used OneDrive, iCloud, Dropbox etc., and Google Drive is the one I just keep coming back to. It is the easiest platform to use that I have tried.

Another aspect that holds Google Drive above the competition is the generous amount of storage before you need to pay, and the cost basis isn't bad either.

Google Drive is one of the essential business tools out there that keep people working. Individuals have the ability to collaborate and communicate instantaneously through the platform in order to better themselves and their organizations. I give this product a ten because of the immense benefit provided to all individuals who use it.

Google Drive is easy to use. Multiple ways to access it, share from it, and organize it. Shared folders help teams work effectively. The fact that it is available across operating systems and devices eliminates barriers to access. You can work anywhere, at any time. Having version histories helps if mistakes are made.

The tool itself is easy to use, but we found some issues regarding how space was used between users and how files were shared. So if you create some file, you'll need to move it to a shared folder or share it manually with other people. In terms of ease of use, it's great. File sharing works, but could be improved though.

Google Drive has always done everything I've needed it to do. They keep adding features that make it more enjoyable and useful as well. I've used many of Drive's features over the years on personal and professional projects and have never been disappointed. Most importantly I've never lost work when depending on a Google product to do my job.

It's super easy to use, though you'll need to tinker for an hour to learn the basics of folder structure or processing.

It is incredibly easy to use. I don't know if there is a simpler solution available. If there is, I have never seen it. Google Drive is the best option I've come across for sending and receiving files, whether they are small or large. I can't recommend it enough to anyone who might be interested.

The features of Google Drive are very easy and user-friendly. It's easy to upload, download, share and collaborate different files among different departments. The storage capacity and accessibility from anywhere make it a very useful platform.

Google Drive is very easy to use, and most of the time, does not require a subscription (anyone with a Google account can use it). All of the documents are similar to ones that most people have worked with before (i.e. Sheets is similar to Excel) and the interface is pretty intuitive. Changes are saved immediately, so there's not too much of a learning curve and the version history feature allows you to go back if you've made a mistake (i.e. accidentally deleting something).

It just works. It works on any device. On the go, tablet, mobile, or the desktop of any OS. Also, the UI is very easy to use and it integrates perfectly with the rest of Google´s product suite. I can't find a single disadvantage.

Google Drive's user interface and experience is incredible. It is so simple, and if you've used the internet or Google itself, then you'll be familiar with the layout, buttons, etc., of Google Drive. It is far easier to use, and has a much lower barrier to entry than most other web tools, not to mention Microsoft Products. I grew up using Microsoft Office and Google is far simpler. Less features, perhaps, but simpler to the point that it offsets the lack of features (and the features continue to catch up).
