Google Drive, one of the most famous online cloud storage platforms launched back in 2012, is about to join the search engine giant’s 1 billion users club. Drive is going to be the 8th product to reach this number as Google already had 7 of its products cross the 1 billion mark.
The company announced it during the Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, saying that the 1 billion mark will be reached later this week. The exact day wasn’t specified.
Drive follows in the footsteps of Google’s flagship services like Android, Maps, Chrome, YouTube, Search and the Play Store that reached this milestone earlier. It should be noted that Android has more than 2 billion users now.
Features Added In The Past
In the past, Google Drive was updated with machine learning to provide a better user experience. Google also added Drive centric backup and sync tool for Mac and PC, as well as business-oriented features like Team Drives and Drive File Stream to maximize the space available to its users.
Before this, Google Drive showed up in the news for storing more than 2 trillion files on its cloud servers. At that time it had more than 800 million active users.
