At the Google Cloud Next ’17 in San Francisco Google announced new G Suite features that offers several new improvements that we know will be useful to clients.
Team Drives help teams simply and securely manage permissions, ownership and file access for an organization within Google Drive. Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Unlike My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done. For more info.
Quick Access in Team Drives
Quick Access in Team Drives is powered by Google’s machine intelligence, Quick Access helps to surface the right information for employees at the right time within Google Drive. Quick Access now works with Team Drives on iOS and Android devices, and is coming soon to the web. For more info.
Drive File Stream
This is a new way to access all of your Google Drive files directly from your Mac or PC, without using up all your disk space. Unlike traditional file sync tools, Drive File Stream doesn’t require you to download your files first in order to access them from your computer. Instead, when you need to view or edit a file, it automatically streams from the cloud, on-demand. With Drive File Stream, your team will spend less time waiting for files to sync, no time worrying about disk space, and more time being productive. For more info.
Google Vault for Drive
Google Vault for Drive now gives admins the governance controls they need to manage and secure all of their files, including employee Drives and Team Drives. Google Vault for Drive also lets admins set retention policies that automatically keep what’s needed and delete what’s not. For more info.
