Google Drive is a cloud storage service which is used to store photos, videos, and files online and shares them from anywhere on any device. It allows you to save a Web page as a PDF, recover document versions, preview files, create surveys and invitations, research almost anything, add apps to increase productivity, update spreadsheets and much more. It offers 5 GB of free storage space to all its users. If you need more storage space, then you can buy a storage plan. If Google Drive storage plans have changed, but you want to stay on your old plan then you can as long as you want.
